A Quantitative Extension of Interval Temporal Logic over Infinite Words

Authors: Laura Bozzelli and Adriano Peron

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


Abstract
Model checking (MC) for Halpern and Shoham’s interval temporal logic HS has been recently investigated in a systematic way, and it is known to be decidable under three distinct semantics (state-based, trace-based and tree-based semantics), all of them assuming homogeneity in the propositional valuation. Here, we focus on the trace-based semantics, where the main semantic entities are the infinite execution paths (traces) of the given Kripke structure. We introduce a quantitative extension of HS over traces, called Difference HS (DHS), allowing one to express timing constraints on the difference among interval lengths (durations). We show that MC and satisfiability of full DHS are in general undecidable, so, we investigate the decidability border for these problems by considering natural syntactical fragments of DHS. In particular, we identify a maximal decidable fragment DHS_{simple} of DHS proving in addition that the considered problems for this fragment are at least 2Expspace-hard. Moreover, by exploiting new results on linear-time hybrid logics, we show that for an equally expressive fragment of DHS_{simple}, the problems are Expspace-complete. Finally, we provide a characterization of HS over traces by means of the one-variable fragment of a novel hybrid logic.

Expressiveness and Decidability of Temporal Logics for Asynchronous Hyperproperties

Authors: Laura Bozzelli, Adriano Peron, and César Sánchez

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 243, 33rd International Conference on Concurrency Theory (CONCUR 2022)


Abstract
Hyperproperties are properties of systems that relate different executions traces, with many applications from security to symmetry, consistency models of concurrency, etc. In recent years, different linear-time logics for specifying asynchronous hyperproperties have been investigated. Though model checking of these logics is undecidable, useful decidable fragments have been identified with applications e.g. for asynchronous security analysis. In this paper, we address expressiveness and decidability issues of temporal logics for asynchronous hyperproperties. We compare the expressiveness of these logics together with the extension S1S[E] of S1S with the equal-level predicate by obtaining an almost complete expressiveness picture. We also study the expressive power of these logics when interpreted on singleton sets of traces. We show that for two asynchronous extensions of HyperLTL, checking the existence of a singleton model is already undecidable, and for one of them, namely Context HyperLTL (HyperLTL_C), we establish a characterization of the singleton models in terms of the extension of standard FO[<] over traces with addition. This last result generalizes the well-known equivalence between FO[<] and LTL. Finally, we identify new boundaries on the decidability of model checking HyperLTL_C.

Pspace-Completeness of the Temporal Logic of Sub-Intervals and Suffixes

Authors: Laura Bozzelli, Angelo Montanari, Adriano Peron, and Pietro Sala

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


Abstract
In this paper, we establish Pspace-completeness of the finite satisfiability and model checking problems for the fragment of Halpern and Shoham interval logic with modality ⟨E⟩, for the "suffix" relation on pairs of intervals, and modality ⟨D⟩, for the "sub-interval" relation, under the homogeneity assumption. The result significantly improves the Expspace upper bound recently established for the same fragment, and proves the rather surprising fact that the complexity of the considered problems does not change when we add either the modality for suffixes (⟨E⟩) or, symmetrically, the modality for prefixes (⟨B⟩) to the logic of sub-intervals (featuring only ⟨D⟩).

On a Temporal Logic of Prefixes and Infixes

Authors: Laura Bozzelli, Angelo Montanari, Adriano Peron, and Pietro Sala

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 170, 45th International Symposium on Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science (MFCS 2020)


Abstract
A classic result by Stockmeyer [Stockmeyer, 1974] gives a non-elementary lower bound to the emptiness problem for star-free generalized regular expressions. This result is intimately connected to the satisfiability problem for interval temporal logic, notably for formulas that make use of the so-called chop operator. Such an operator can indeed be interpreted as the inverse of the concatenation operation on regular languages, and this correspondence enables reductions between non-emptiness of star-free generalized regular expressions and satisfiability of formulas of the interval temporal logic of the chop operator under the homogeneity assumption [Halpern et al., 1983]. In this paper, we study the complexity of the satisfiability problem for a suitable weakening of the chop interval temporal logic, that can be equivalently viewed as a fragment of Halpern and Shoham interval logic featuring the operators B, for "begins", corresponding to the prefix relation on pairs of intervals, and D, for "during", corresponding to the infix relation. The homogeneous models of the considered logic naturally correspond to languages defined by restricted forms of regular expressions, that use union, complementation, and the inverses of the prefix and infix relations.

Interval Temporal Logic for Visibly Pushdown Systems

Authors: Laura Bozzelli, Angelo Montanari, and Adriano Peron

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 150, 39th IARCS Annual Conference on Foundations of Software Technology and Theoretical Computer Science (FSTTCS 2019)


Abstract
In this paper, we introduce and investigate an extension of Halpern and Shoham’s interval temporal logic HS for the specification and verification of branching-time context-free requirements of pushdown systems under a state-based semantics over Kripke structures. Both homogeneity and visibility are assumed. The proposed logic, called nested BHS, supports branching-time both in the past and in the future, and is able to express non-regular properties of linear and branching behaviours of procedural contexts in a natural way. It strictly subsumes well-known linear time context-free extensions of LTL such as CaRet [R. Alur et al., 2004] and NWTL [R. Alur et al., 2007]. The main result is the decidability of the visibly pushdown model-checking problem against nested BHS. The proof exploits a non-trivial automata-theoretic construction.

Taming the Complexity of Timeline-Based Planning over Dense Temporal Domains

Authors: Laura Bozzelli, Angelo Montanari, and Adriano Peron

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 150, 39th IARCS Annual Conference on Foundations of Software Technology and Theoretical Computer Science (FSTTCS 2019)


Abstract
The problem of timeline-based planning (TP) over dense temporal domains is known to be undecidable. In this paper, we introduce two semantic variants of TP, called strong minimal and weak minimal semantics, which allow to express meaningful properties. Both semantics are based on the minimality in the time distances of the existentially-quantified time events from the universally-quantified reference event, but the weak minimal variant distinguishes minimality in the past from minimality in the future. Surprisingly, we show that, despite the (apparently) small difference in the two semantics, for the strong minimal one, the TP problem is still undecidable, while for the weak minimal one, the TP problem is just PSPACE-complete. Membership in PSPACE is determined by exploiting a strictly more expressive extension (ECA^+) of the well-known robust class of Event-Clock Automata (ECA) that allows to encode the weak minimal TP problem and to reduce it to non-emptiness of Timed Automata (TA). Finally, an extension of ECA^+ (ECA^{++}) is considered, proving that its non-emptiness problem is undecidable. We believe that the two extensions of ECA (ECA^+ and ECA^{++}), introduced for technical reasons, are actually valuable per sé in the field of TA.

Complexity Analysis of a Unifying Algorithm for Model Checking Interval Temporal Logic

Authors: Laura Bozzelli, Angelo Montanari, and Adriano Peron

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 147, 26th International Symposium on Temporal Representation and Reasoning (TIME 2019)


Abstract
The model-checking (MC) problem of Halpern and Shoham Interval Temporal Logic (HS) has been recently investigated in some papers and is known to be decidable. An intriguing open question concerns the exact complexity of the problem for full HS: it is at least EXPSPACE-hard, while the only known upper bound is non-elementary and is obtained by exploiting an abstract representation of Kripke structure paths called descriptors. In this paper we generalize the approach by providing a uniform framework for model-checking full HS and meaningful (almost maximal) fragments, where a specialized type of descriptor is defined for each fragment. We then devise a general MC alternating algorithm parameterized by the type of descriptor which has a polynomially bounded number of alternations and whose running time is bounded by the length of minimal representatives of descriptors (certificates). We analyze the time complexity of the algorithm and give, by non-trivial arguments, tight bounds on the length of certificates. For two types of descriptors, we obtain exponential upper and lower bounds which lead to an elementary MC algorithm for the related HS fragments. For the other types of descriptors, we provide non-elementary lower bounds. This last result addresses a question left open in some papers regarding the possibility of fixing an elementary upper bound on the size of the descriptors for full HS.

Results on Alternating-Time Temporal Logics with Linear Past

Authors: Laura Bozzelli, Aniello Murano, and Loredana Sorrentino

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 120, 25th International Symposium on Temporal Representation and Reasoning (TIME 2018)


Abstract
We investigate the succinctness gap between two known equally-expressive and different linear-past extensions of standard CTL^* (resp., ATL^*). We establish by formal non-trivial arguments that the "memoryful" linear-past extension (the history leading to the current state is taken into account) can be exponentially more succinct than the standard "local" linear-past extension (the history leading to the current state is forgotten). As a second contribution, we consider the ATL-like fragment, denoted ATL_{lp}, of the known "memoryful" linear-past extension of ATL^{*}. We show that ATL_{lp} is strictly more expressive than ATL, and interestingly, it can be exponentially more succinct than the more expressive logic ATL^{*}. Moreover, we prove that both satisfiability and model-checking for the logic ATL_{lp} are Exptime-complete.

Hierarchical Cost-Parity Games

Authors: Laura Bozzelli, Aniello Murano, Giuseppe Perelli, and Loredana Sorrentino

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 90, 24th International Symposium on Temporal Representation and Reasoning (TIME 2017)


Abstract
Cost-parity games are a fundamental tool in system design for the analysis of reactive and distributed systems that recently have received a lot of attention from the formal methods research community. They allow to reason about the time delay on the requests granted by systems, with a bounded consumption of resources, in their executions. In this paper, we contribute to research on Cost-parity games by combining them with hierarchical systems, a successful method for the succinct representation of models. We show that determining the winner of a Hierarchical Cost-parity Game is PSpace-Complete, thus matching the complexity of the proper special case of Hierarchical Parity Games. This shows that reasoning about temporal delay can be addressed at a free cost in terms of complexity.

Satisfiability and Model Checking for the Logic of Sub-Intervals under the Homogeneity Assumption

Authors: Laura Bozzelli, Alberto Molinari, Angelo Montanari, Adriano Peron, and Pietro Sala

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 80, 44th International Colloquium on Automata, Languages, and Programming (ICALP 2017)


Abstract
In this paper, we investigate the finite satisfiability and model checking problems for the logic D of the sub-interval relation under the homogeneity assumption, that constrains a proposition letter to hold over an interval if and only if it holds over all its points. First, we prove that the satisfiability problem for D, over finite linear orders, is PSPACE-complete; then, we show that its model checking problem, over finite Kripke structures, is PSPACE-complete as well.

Interval vs. Point Temporal Logic Model Checking: an Expressiveness Comparison

Authors: Laura Bozzelli, Alberto Molinari, Angelo Montanari, Adriano Peron, and Pietro Sala

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 65, 36th IARCS Annual Conference on Foundations of Software Technology and Theoretical Computer Science (FSTTCS 2016)


Abstract
Model checking is a powerful method widely explored in formal verification to check the (state-transition) model of a system against desired properties of its behaviour. Classically, properties are expressed by formulas of a temporal logic, such as LTL, CTL, and CTL*. These logics are "point-wise" interpreted, as they describe how the system evolves state-by-state. On the contrary, Halpern and Shoham's interval temporal logic (HS) is "interval-wise" interpreted, thus allowing one to naturally express properties of computation stretches, spanning a sequence of states, or properties involving temporal aggregations, which are inherently "interval-based". In this paper, we study the expressiveness of HS in model checking, in comparison with that of the standard logics LTL, CTL, and CTL*. To this end, we consider HS endowed with three semantic variants: the state-based semantics, introduced by Montanari et al., which allows branching in the past and in the future, the linear-past semantics, allowing branching only in the future, and the linear semantics, disallowing branching. These variants are compared, as for their expressiveness, among themselves and to standard temporal logics, getting a complete picture. In particular, HS with linear (resp., linear-past) semantics is proved to be equivalent to LTL (resp., finitary CTL*).

Visibly Rational Expressions

Authors: Laura Bozzelli and César Sánchez

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 18, IARCS Annual Conference on Foundations of Software Technology and Theoretical Computer Science (FSTTCS 2012)


Abstract
Regular Expressions (RE) are an algebraic formalism for expressing regular languages, widely used in string search and as a specification language in verification. In this paper we introduce and investigate Visibly Rational Expressions (VRE), an extension of RE for the well-known class of Visibly Pushdown Languages (VPL). We show that VRE capture the class of VPL. Moreover, we identify an equally expressive fragment of VRE which admits a quadratic time compositional translation into the automata acceptors of VPL. We also prove that, for this fragment, universality, inclusion and language equivalence are EXPTIME-complete. Finally, we provide an extension of VRE for VPL over infinite words.

On Timed Alternating Simulation for Concurrent Timed Games

Authors: Laura Bozzelli, Axel Legay, and Sophie Pinchinat

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 4, IARCS Annual Conference on Foundations of Software Technology and Theoretical Computer Science (2009)


Abstract
We address the problem of alternating simulation refinement for concurrent timed games (\TG). We show that checking timed alternating simulation between\TG is \EXPTIME-complete, and provide a logical characterization of thispreorder in terms of a meaningful fragment of a new logic, \TAMTLSTAR.\TAMTLSTAR is an action-based timed extension of standard alternating-timetemporal logic \ATLSTAR, which allows to quantify on strategies where thedesignated player is not responsible for blocking time. While for full \TAMTLSTAR, model-checking \TG is undecidable, we show that for its fragment \TAMTL, corresponding to the timed version of \ATL, in \EXPTIME.
