Expressive Quantale-Valued Logics for Coalgebras: An Adjunction-Based Approach

Authors: Harsh Beohar, Sebastian Gurke, Barbara König, Karla Messing, Jonas Forster, Lutz Schröder, and Paul Wild

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 289, 41st International Symposium on Theoretical Aspects of Computer Science (STACS 2024)


Abstract
We address the task of deriving fixpoint equations from modal logics characterizing behavioural equivalences and metrics (summarized under the term conformances). We rely on an earlier work that obtains Hennessy-Milner theorems as corollaries to a fixpoint preservation property along Galois connections between suitable lattices. We instantiate this to the setting of coalgebras, in which we spell out the compatibility property ensuring that we can derive a behaviour function whose greatest fixpoint coincides with the logical conformance. We then concentrate on the linear-time case, for which we study coalgebras based on the machine functor living in Eilenberg-Moore categories, a scenario for which we obtain a particularly simple logic and fixpoint equation. The theory is instantiated to concrete examples, both in the branching-time case (bisimilarity and behavioural metrics) and in the linear-time case (trace equivalences and trace distances).

Higher-Order Mathematical Operational Semantics (Early Ideas)

Authors: Sergey Goncharov, Stefan Milius, Lutz Schröder, Stelios Tsampas, and Henning Urbat

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 270, 10th Conference on Algebra and Coalgebra in Computer Science (CALCO 2023)


Abstract
We present a higher-order extension of Turi and Plotkin’s abstract GSOS framework that retains the key feature of the latter: for every language whose operational rules are represented by a higher-order GSOS law, strong bisimilarity on the canonical operational model is a congruence with respect to the operations of the language. We further extend this result to weak (bi-)similarity, for which a categorical account of Howe’s method is developed. It encompasses, for instance, Abramsky’s classical compositionality theorem for applicative similarity in the untyped λ-calculus. In addition, we give first steps of a theory of logical relations at the level of higher-order abstract GSOS.

Hennessy-Milner Theorems via Galois Connections

Authors: Harsh Beohar, Sebastian Gurke, Barbara König, and Karla Messing

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 252, 31st EACSL Annual Conference on Computer Science Logic (CSL 2023)


Abstract
We introduce a general and compositional, yet simple, framework that allows to derive soundness and expressiveness results for modal logics characterizing behavioural equivalences or metrics (also known as Hennessy-Milner theorems). It is based on Galois connections between sets of (real-valued) predicates on the one hand and equivalence relations/metrics on the other hand and covers a part of the linear-time-branching-time spectrum, both for the qualitative case (behavioural equivalences) and the quantitative case (behavioural metrics). We derive behaviour functions from a given logic and give a condition, called compatibility, that characterizes under which conditions a logically induced equivalence/metric is induced by a fixpoint equation. In particular, this framework allows to derive a new fixpoint characterization of directed trace metrics.

Quantitative Hennessy-Milner Theorems via Notions of Density

Authors: Jonas Forster, Sergey Goncharov, Dirk Hofmann, Pedro Nora, Lutz Schröder, and Paul Wild

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 252, 31st EACSL Annual Conference on Computer Science Logic (CSL 2023)


Abstract
The classical Hennessy-Milner theorem is an important tool in the analysis of concurrent processes; it guarantees that any two non-bisimilar states in finitely branching labelled transition systems can be distinguished by a modal formula. Numerous variants of this theorem have since been established for a wide range of logics and system types, including quantitative versions where lower bounds on behavioural distance (e.g. in weighted, metric, or probabilistic transition systems) are witnessed by quantitative modal formulas. Both the qualitative and the quantitative versions have been accommodated within the framework of coalgebraic logic, with distances taking values in quantales, subject to certain restrictions, such as being so-called value quantales. While previous quantitative coalgebraic Hennessy-Milner theorems apply only to liftings of set functors to (pseudo)metric spaces, in the present work we provide a quantitative coalgebraic Hennessy-Milner theorem that applies more widely to functors native to metric spaces; notably, we thus cover, for the first time, the well-known Hennessy-Milner theorem for continuous probabilistic transition systems, where transitions are given by Borel measures on metric spaces, as an instance of such a general result. In the process, we also relax the restrictions imposed on the quantale, and additionally parametrize the technical account over notions of closure and, hence, density, providing associated variants of the Stone-Weierstraß theorem; this allows us to cover, for instance, behavioural ultrametrics.

Supported Sets - A New Foundation for Nominal Sets and Automata

Authors: Thorsten Wißmann

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 252, 31st EACSL Annual Conference on Computer Science Logic (CSL 2023)


Abstract
The present work proposes and discusses the category of supported sets which provides a uniform foundation for nominal sets of various kinds, such as those for equality symmetry, for the order symmetry, and renaming sets. We show that all these differently flavoured categories of nominal sets are monadic over supported sets. Thus, supported sets provide a canonical finite way to represent nominal sets and the automata therein, e.g. register automata and coalgebras in general. Name binding in supported sets is modelled by a functor following the idea of de Bruijn indices. This functor lifts to the well-known abstraction functor in nominal sets. Together with the monadicity result, this gives rise to a transformation process from finite coalgebras in supported sets to orbit-finite coalgebras in nominal sets. One instance of this process transforms the finite representation of a register automaton in supported sets into its configuration automaton in nominal sets.

Stateful Structural Operational Semantics

Authors: Sergey Goncharov, Stefan Milius, Lutz Schröder, Stelios Tsampas, and Henning Urbat

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 228, 7th International Conference on Formal Structures for Computation and Deduction (FSCD 2022)


Abstract
Compositionality of denotational semantics is an important concern in programming semantics. Mathematical operational semantics in the sense of Turi and Plotkin guarantees compositionality, but seen from the point of view of stateful computation it applies only to very fine-grained equivalences that essentially assume unrestricted interference by the environment between any two statements. We introduce the more restrictive stateful SOS rule format for stateful languages. We show that compositionality of two more coarse-grained semantics, respectively given by assuming read-only interference or no interference between steps, remains an undecidable property even for stateful SOS. However, further restricting the rule format in a manner inspired by the cool GSOS formats of Bloom and van Glabbeek, we obtain the streamlined and cool stateful SOS formats, which respectively guarantee compositionality of the two more abstract equivalences.

Monads on Categories of Relational Structures

Authors: Chase Ford, Stefan Milius, and Lutz Schröder

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 211, 9th Conference on Algebra and Coalgebra in Computer Science (CALCO 2021)


Abstract
We introduce a framework for universal algebra in categories of relational structures given by finitary relational signatures and finitary or infinitary Horn theories, with the arity λ of a Horn theory understood as a strict upper bound on the number of premisses in its axioms; key examples include partial orders (λ = ω) or metric spaces (λ = ω₁). We establish a bijective correspondence between λ-accessible enriched monads on the given category of relational structures and a notion of λ-ary algebraic theories (i.e. with operations of arity < λ), with the syntax of algebraic theories induced by the relational signature (e.g. inequations or equations-up-to-ε). We provide a generic sound and complete derivation system for such relational algebraic theories, thus in particular recovering (extensions of) recent systems of this type for monads on partial orders and metric spaces by instantiation. In particular, we present an ω₁-ary algebraic theory of metric completion. The theory-to-monad direction of our correspondence remains true for the case of κ-ary algebraic theories and κ-accessible monads for κ < λ, e.g. for finitary theories over metric spaces.

A Linear-Time Nominal μ-Calculus with Name Allocation

Authors: Daniel Hausmann, Stefan Milius, and Lutz Schröder

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


Abstract
Logics and automata models for languages over infinite alphabets, such as Freeze LTL and register automata, serve the verification of processes or documents with data. They relate tightly to formalisms over nominal sets, such as nondetermininistic orbit-finite automata (NOFAs), where names play the role of data. Reasoning problems in such formalisms tend to be computationally hard. Name-binding nominal automata models such as {regular nondeterministic nominal automata (RNNAs)} have been shown to be computationally more tractable. In the present paper, we introduce a linear-time fixpoint logic Bar-μTL} for finite words over an infinite alphabet, which features full negation and freeze quantification via name binding. We show by a nontrivial reduction to extended regular nondeterministic nominal automata that even though Bar-μTL} allows unrestricted nondeterminism and unboundedly many registers, model checking Bar-μTL} over RNNAs and satisfiability checking both have elementary complexity. For example, model checking is in 2ExpSpace, more precisely in parametrized ExpSpace, effectively with the number of registers as the parameter.

Nominal Büchi Automata with Name Allocation

Authors: Henning Urbat, Daniel Hausmann, Stefan Milius, and Lutz Schröder

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


Abstract
Infinite words over infinite alphabets serve as models of the temporal development of the allocation and (re-)use of resources over linear time. We approach ω-languages over infinite alphabets in the setting of nominal sets, and study languages of infinite bar strings, i.e. infinite sequences of names that feature binding of fresh names; binding corresponds roughly to reading letters from input words in automata models with registers. We introduce regular nominal nondeterministic Büchi automata (Büchi RNNAs), an automata model for languages of infinite bar strings, repurposing the previously introduced RNNAs over finite bar strings. Our machines feature explicit binding (i.e. resource-allocating) transitions and process their input via a Büchi-type acceptance condition. They emerge from the abstract perspective on name binding given by the theory of nominal sets. As our main result we prove that, in contrast to most other nondeterministic automata models over infinite alphabets, language inclusion of Büchi RNNAs is decidable and in fact elementary. This makes Büchi RNNAs a suitable tool for applications in model checking.

Explaining Behavioural Inequivalence Generically in Quasilinear Time

Authors: Thorsten Wißmann, Stefan Milius, and Lutz Schröder

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


Abstract
We provide a generic algorithm for constructing formulae that distinguish behaviourally inequivalent states in systems of various transition types such as nondeterministic, probabilistic or weighted; genericity over the transition type is achieved by working with coalgebras for a set functor in the paradigm of universal coalgebra. For every behavioural equivalence class in a given system, we construct a formula which holds precisely at the states in that class. The algorithm instantiates to deterministic finite automata, transition systems, labelled Markov chains, and systems of many other types. The ambient logic is a modal logic featuring modalities that are generically extracted from the functor; these modalities can be systematically translated into custom sets of modalities in a postprocessing step. The new algorithm builds on an existing coalgebraic partition refinement algorithm. It runs in time 𝒪((m+n) log n) on systems with n states and m transitions, and the same asymptotic bound applies to the dag size of the formulae it constructs. This improves the bounds on run time and formula size compared to previous algorithms even for previously known specific instances, viz. transition systems and Markov chains; in particular, the best previous bound for transition systems was 𝒪(m n).

The Alternating-Time μ-Calculus with Disjunctive Explicit Strategies

Authors: Merlin Göttlinger, Lutz Schröder, and Dirk Pattinson

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 183, 29th EACSL Annual Conference on Computer Science Logic (CSL 2021)


Abstract
Alternating-time temporal logic (ATL) and its extensions, including the alternating-time µ-calculus (AMC), serve the specification of the strategic abilities of coalitions of agents in concurrent game structures. The key ingredient of the logic are path quantifiers specifying that some coalition of agents has a joint strategy to enforce a given goal. This basic setup has been extended to let some of the agents (revocably) commit to using certain named strategies, as in ATL with explicit strategies (ATLES). In the present work, we extend ATLES with fixpoint operators and strategy disjunction, arriving at the alternating-time µ-calculus with disjunctive explicit strategies (AMCDES), which allows for a more flexible formulation of temporal properties (e.g. fairness) and, through strategy disjunction, a form of controlled non-determinism in commitments. Our main result is an ExpTime upper bound for satisfiability checking (which is thus ExpTime-complete). We also prove upper bounds QP (quasipolynomial time) and NP∩coNP for model checking under fixed interpretations of explicit strategies, and NP under open interpretation. Our key technical tool is a treatment of the AMCDES within the generic framework of coalgebraic logic, which in particular reduces the analysis of most reasoning tasks to the treatment of a very simple one-step logic featuring only propositional operators and next-step operators without nesting; we give a new model construction principle for this one-step logic that relies on a set-valued variant of first-order resolution.

Characteristic Logics for Behavioural Metrics via Fuzzy Lax Extensions

Authors: Paul Wild and Lutz Schröder

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 171, 31st International Conference on Concurrency Theory (CONCUR 2020)


Abstract
Behavioural distances provide a fine-grained measure of equivalence in systems involving quantitative data, such as probabilistic, fuzzy, or metric systems. Like in the classical setting of crisp bisimulation-type equivalences, the wide variation found in system types creates a need for generic methods that apply to many system types at once. Approaches of this kind are emerging within the paradigm of universal coalgebra, based either on lifting pseudometrics along set functors or on lifting general real-valued (fuzzy) relations along functors by means of fuzzy lax extensions. An immediate benefit of the latter is that they allow bounding behavioural distance by means of fuzzy bisimulations that need not themselves be (pseudo-)metrics, in analogy to classical bisimulations (which need not be equivalence relations). The known instances of generic pseudometric liftings, specifically the generic Kantorovich and Wasserstein liftings, both can be extended to yield fuzzy lax extensions, using the fact that both are effectively given by a choice of quantitative modalities. Our central result then shows that in fact all fuzzy lax extensions are Kantorovich extensions for a suitable set of quantitative modalities, the so-called Moss modalities. For non-expansive fuzzy lax extensions, this allows for the extraction of quantitative modal logics that characterize behavioural distance, i.e. satisfy a quantitative version of the Hennessy-Milner theorem; equivalently, we obtain expressiveness of a quantitative version of Moss' coalgebraic logic.

Game-Based Local Model Checking for the Coalgebraic mu-Calculus

Authors: Daniel Hausmann and Lutz Schröder

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 140, 30th International Conference on Concurrency Theory (CONCUR 2019)


Abstract
The coalgebraic mu-calculus is a generic framework for fixpoint logics with varying branching types that subsumes, besides the standard relational mu-calculus, such diverse logics as the graded mu-calculus, the monotone mu-calculus, the probabilistic mu-calculus, and the alternating-time mu-calculus. In the present work, we give a local model checking algorithm for the coalgebraic mu-calculus using a coalgebraic variant of parity games that runs, under mild assumptions on the complexity of the so-called one-step satisfaction problem, in time p^k where p is a polynomial in the formula and model size and where k is the alternation depth of the formula. We show moreover that under the same assumptions, the model checking problem is in both NP and coNP, improving the complexity in all mentioned non-relational cases. If one-step satisfaction can be solved by means of small finite games, we moreover obtain standard parity games, ensuring quasi-polynomial run time. This applies in particular to the monotone mu-calculus, the alternating-time mu-calculus, and the graded mu-calculus with grades coded in unary.

Graded Monads and Graded Logics for the Linear Time - Branching Time Spectrum

Authors: Ulrich Dorsch, Stefan Milius, and Lutz Schröder

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 140, 30th International Conference on Concurrency Theory (CONCUR 2019)


Abstract
State-based models of concurrent systems are traditionally considered under a variety of notions of process equivalence. In the case of labelled transition systems, these equivalences range from trace equivalence to (strong) bisimilarity, and are organized in what is known as the linear time - branching time spectrum. A combination of universal coalgebra and graded monads provides a generic framework in which the semantics of concurrency can be parametrized both over the branching type of the underlying transition systems and over the granularity of process equivalence. We show in the present paper that this framework of graded semantics does subsume the most important equivalences from the linear time - branching time spectrum. An important feature of graded semantics is that it allows for the principled extraction of characteristic modal logics. We have established invariance of these graded logics under the given graded semantics in earlier work; in the present paper, we extend the logical framework with an explicit propositional layer and provide a generic expressiveness criterion that generalizes the classical Hennessy-Milner theorem to coarser notions of process equivalence. We extract graded logics for a range of graded semantics on labelled transition systems and probabilistic systems, and give exemplary proofs of their expressiveness based on our generic criterion.

Uniform Interpolation in Coalgebraic Modal Logic

Authors: Fatemeh Seifan, Lutz Schröder, and Dirk Pattinson

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 72, 7th Conference on Algebra and Coalgebra in Computer Science (CALCO 2017)


Abstract
A logic has uniform interpolation if its formulas can be projected down to given subsignatures, preserving all logical consequences that do not mention the removed symbols; the weaker property of (Craig) interpolation allows the projected formula - the interpolant - to be different for each logical consequence of the original formula. These properties are of importance, e.g., in the modularization of logical theories. We study interpolation in the context of coalgebraic modal logics, i.e. modal logics axiomatized in rank 1, restricting for clarity to the case with finitely many modalities. Examples of such logics include the modal logics K and KD, neighbourhood logic and its monotone variant, finite-monoid-weighted logics, and coalition logic. We introduce a notion of one-step (uniform) interpolation, which refers only to a restricted logic without nesting of modalities, and show that a coalgebraic modal logic has uniform interpolation if it has one-step interpolation. Moreover, we identify preservation of finite surjective weak pullbacks as a sufficient, and in the monotone case necessary, condition for one-step interpolation. We thus prove or reprove uniform interpolation for most of the examples listed above.
