This lecture provides an introduction to automata based model checking and its use for closed system synthesis. We first discuss what model checking is, how it works (in particular how automata based model checking works), and how it is used for verification of linear temporal logic specifications against finite transition system models. We then move to its use for synthesizing (open-loop) control strategies. We also provide examples using the SPIN model checker (discussed in [[EECI 2012: Computer Session: Spin| | This lecture provides an introduction to automata based model checking and its use for closed system synthesis.

This lecture provides an introduction to automata based model checking and its use for closed system synthesis. We first discuss what model checking is, how it works (in particular how automata based model checking works), and how it is used for verification of linear temporal logic specifications against finite transition system models. We then move to its use for synthesizing (open-loop) control strategies. We also provide examples using the SPIN model checker (discussed in the Spin lecture) and discuss the computational complexity of model checking.
