Linear-Time Temporal Logic with Team Semantics: Expressivity and Complexity

Authors: Jonni Virtema, Jana Hofmann, Bernd Finkbeiner, Juha Kontinen, and Fan Yang

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 213, 41st IARCS Annual Conference on Foundations of Software Technology and Theoretical Computer Science (FSTTCS 2021)


Abstract
We study the expressivity and complexity of model checking of linear temporal logic with team semantics (TeamLTL). TeamLTL, despite being a purely modal logic, is capable of defining hyperproperties, i.e., properties which relate multiple execution traces. TeamLTL has been introduced quite recently and only few results are known regarding its expressivity and its model checking problem. We relate the expressivity of TeamLTL to logics for hyperproperties obtained by extending LTL with trace and propositional quantifiers (HyperLTL and HyperQPTL). By doing so, we obtain a number of model checking results for TeamLTL and identify its undecidability frontier. In particular, we show decidability of model checking of the so-called left-flat fragment of any downward closed TeamLTL -extension. Moreover, we establish that the model checking problem of TeamLTL with Boolean disjunction and inclusion atoms is undecidable.

Counting of Teams in First-Order Team Logics

Authors: Anselm Haak, Juha Kontinen, Fabian Müller, Heribert Vollmer, and Fan Yang

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 138, 44th International Symposium on Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science (MFCS 2019)


Abstract
We study descriptive complexity of counting complexity classes in the range from #P to #*NP. A corollary of Fagin’s characterization of NP by existential second-order logic is that #P can be logically described as the class of functions counting satisfying assignments to free relation variables in first-order formulae. In this paper we extend this study to classes beyond #P and extensions of first-order logic with team semantics. These team-based logics are closely related to existential second-order logic and its fragments, hence our results also shed light on the complexity of counting for extensions of first-order logic in Tarski’s semantics. Our results show that the class #*NP can be logically characterized by independence logic and existential second-order logic, whereas dependence logic and inclusion logic give rise to subclasses of #*NP and #P, respectively. We also study the function class generated by inclusion logic and relate it to the complexity class TotP, which is a subclass of #P. Our main technical result shows that the problem of counting satisfying assignments for monotone Boolean Sigma_1-formulae is #*NP-complete with respect to Turing reductions as well as complete for the function class generated by dependence logic with respect to first-order reductions.

Extending C+ with Composite Actions for Robotic Task Planning

Authors: Xiaoping Chen, Guoqiang Jin, and Fangkai Yang

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 17, Technical Communications of the 28th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP'12) (2012)


Abstract
This paper extends action language C+ by introducing composite actions as sequential execution of other actions, leading to a more intuitive and flexible way to represent action domains, better exploit a general-purpose formalization, and improve the reasoning efficiency for large domains. Our experiments show that the composite actions can be seen as a method of knowledge acquisition for intelligent robots.
