Saturation of Concurrent Collapsible Pushdown Systems

23.pdf (0.7 MB)


Multi-stack pushdown systems are a well-studied model of concurrent computation using threads with first-order procedure calls. While, in general, reachability is undecidable, there are numerous restrictions on stack behaviour that lead to decidability. To model higher-order procedures calls, a generalisation of pushdown stacks called collapsible pushdown stacks are required. Reachability problems for multi-stack collapsible pushdown systems have been little studied. Here, we study ordered, phase-bounded and scope-bounded multi-stack collapsible pushdown systems using saturation techniques, showing decidability of control state reachability and giving a regular representation of all configurations that can reach a given control state.
