The Calculus of Temporal Influence

Authors: Florian Bruse, Marit Kastaun, Martin Lange, and Sören Möller

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 278, 30th International Symposium on Temporal Representation and Reasoning (TIME 2023)


Abstract
We present the Calculus of Temporal Influence, a simple logical calculus that allows reasoning about the behaviour of real-valued functions over time by making assertions that bound their values or the values of their derivatives. The motivation for the design of such a proof system comes from the need to provide the background computational machinery for tools that support learning in experimental subjects in secondary-education classrooms. The end goal is a tool that allows school pupils to formalise hypotheses about phenomena in natural sciences, such that their validity with respect to some formal experiment model can be checked automatically. The Calculus of Temporal Influence provides a language for formal statements and the mechanisms for reasoning about valid logical consequences. It extends (and deviates in parts from) previous work introducing the Calculus of (Non-Temporal) Influence by integrating the ability to model temporal effects in such experiments. We show that reasoning in the calculus is sound with respect to a natural formal semantics, that logical consequence is at least semi-decidable, and that one obtains polynomial-time decidability for a natural stratification of the problem.

The Tail-Recursive Fragment of Timed Recursive CTL

Authors: Florian Bruse, Martin Lange, and Etienne Lozes

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 247, 29th International Symposium on Temporal Representation and Reasoning (TIME 2022)


Abstract
Timed Recursive CTL (TRCTL) was recently proposed as a merger of two extensions of the well-known branching-time logic CTL: Timed CTL on one hand is interpreted over real-time systems like timed automata, and Recursive CTL (RecCTL) on the other hand obtains high expressiveness through the introduction of a recursion operator. Model checking for the resulting logic is known to be 2-EXPTIME-complete. The aim of this paper is to investigate the possibility to obtain a fragment of lower complexity without losing too much expressive power. It is obtained by a syntactic property called "tail-recursiveness" that restricts the way that recursive formulas can be built. This restriction is known to decrease the complexity of model checking by half an exponential in the untimed setting. We show that this also works in the real-time world: model checking for the tail-recursive fragment of TRCTL is EXPSPACE-complete. The upper bound is obtained by a standard untiming construction via region graphs, and rests on the known complexity of tail-recursive fragments of higher-order modal logics. The lower bound is established by a reduction from a suitable tiling problem.

Model Checking Timed Recursive CTL

Authors: Florian Bruse and Martin Lange

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 206, 28th International Symposium on Temporal Representation and Reasoning (TIME 2021)


Abstract
We introduce Timed Recursive CTL, a merger of two extensions of the well-known branching-time logic CTL: Timed CTL is interpreted over real-time systems like timed automata; Recursive CTL introduces a powerful recursion operator which takes the expressiveness of this logic CTL well beyond that of regular properties. The result is an expressive logic for real-time properties. We show that its model checking problem is decidable over timed automata, namely 2-EXPTIME-complete.

Finite Convergence of μ-Calculus Fixpoints on Genuinely Infinite Structures

Authors: Florian Bruse, Marco Sälzer, and Martin Lange

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 202, 46th International Symposium on Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science (MFCS 2021)


Abstract
The modal μ-calculus can only express bisimulation-invariant properties. It is a simple consequence of Kleene’s Fixpoint Theorem that on structures with finite bisimulation quotients, the fixpoint iteration of any formula converges after finitely many steps. We show that the converse does not hold: we construct a word with an infinite bisimulation quotient that is locally regular so that the iteration for any fixpoint formula of the modal μ-calculus on it converges after finitely many steps. This entails decidability of μ-calculus model-checking over this word. We also show that the reason for the discrepancy between infinite bisimulation quotients and trans-finite fixpoint convergence lies in the fact that the μ-calculus can only express regular properties.

A Decidable Non-Regular Modal Fixpoint Logic

Authors: Florian Bruse and Martin Lange

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 203, 32nd International Conference on Concurrency Theory (CONCUR 2021)


Abstract
Fixpoint Logic with Chop (FLC) extends the modal μ-calculus with an operator for sequential composition between predicate transformers. This makes it an expressive modal fixpoint logic which is capable of formalising many non-regular program properties. Its satisfiability problem is highly undecidable. Here we define Visibly Pushdown Fixpoint Logic with Chop, a fragment in which fixpoint formulas are required to be of a certain form resembling visibly pushdown grammars. We give a sound and complete game-theoretic characterisation of FLC’s satisfiability problem and show that the games corresponding to formulas from this fragment are stair-parity games and therefore effectively solvable, resulting in 2EXPTIME-completeness of this fragment. The lower bound is inherited from PDL over Recursive Programs, which is structurally similar but considerably weaker in expressive power.

Temporal Logic with Recursion

Authors: Florian Bruse and Martin Lange

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 178, 27th International Symposium on Temporal Representation and Reasoning (TIME 2020)


Abstract
We introduce extensions of the standard temporal logics CTL and LTL with a recursion operator that takes propositional arguments. Unlike other proposals for modal fixpoint logics of high expressive power, we obtain logics that retain some of the appealing pragmatic advantages of CTL and LTL, yet have expressive power beyond that of the modal μ-calculus or MSO. We advocate these logics by showing how the recursion operator can be used to express interesting non-regular properties. We also study decidability and complexity issues of the standard decision problems.
