Automatic verification of finitestate concurrent systems using temporal logic specifications
 ACM Transactions on Programming Languages and Systems
, 1986
"... We give an efficient procedure for verifying that a finitestate concurrent system meets a specification expressed in a (propositional, branchingtime) temporal logic. Our algorithm has complexity linear in both the size of the specification and the size of the global state graph for the concurrent ..."

Behavior recognition via sparse spatiotemporal features
 In VSPETS
, 2005
"... A common trend in object recognition is to detect and leverage the use of sparse, informative feature points. The use of such features makes the problem more manageable while providing increased robustness to noise and pose variation. In this work we develop an extension of these ideas to the spatio ..."

to the spatiotemporal case. For this purpose, we show that the direct 3D counterparts to commonly used 2D interest point detectors are inadequate, and we propose an alternative. Anchoring off of these interest points, we devise a recognition algorithm based on spatiotemporally windowed data. We present
A Practical Guide to Wavelet Analysis
, 1998
"... A practical stepbystep guide to wavelet analysis is given, with examples taken from time series of the El Nio Southern Oscillation (ENSO). The guide includes a comparison to the windowed Fourier transform, the choice of an appropriate wavelet basis function, edge effects due to finitelength t ..."

Symbolic Model Checking: 10^20 States and Beyond
, 1992
"... Many different methods have been devised for automatically verifying finite state systems by examining stategraph models of system behavior. These methods all depend on decision procedures that explicitly represent the state space using a list or a table that grows in proportion to the number of st ..."

Automatic predicate abstraction of C programs
 IN PROC. ACM PLDI
, 2001
"... Model checking has been widely successful in validating and debugging designs in the hardware and protocol domains. However, statespace explosion limits the applicability of model checking tools, so model checkers typically operate on abstractions of systems. Recently, there has been significant in ..."

of programs written in an industrial programming language such as C, and its implementation in a tool C2bp. The C2bp tool is part of the SLAM toolkit, which uses a combination of predicate abstraction, model checking, symbolic reasoning, and iterative refinement to statically check temporal safety
Automatically validating temporal safety properties of interfaces
, 2001
"... We present a process for validating temporal safety properties of software that uses a welldefined interface. The process requires only that the user state the property of interest. It then automatically creates abstractions of C code using iterative refinement, based on the given property. The pro ..."

The faculty of language: what is it, who has it, and how did it evolve?
 Science,
, 2002
"... We argue that an understanding of the faculty of language requires substantial interdisciplinary cooperation. We suggest how current developments in linguistics can be profitably wedded to work in evolutionary biology, anthropology, psychology, and neuroscience. We submit that a distinction should ..."

OnLine QLearning Using Connectionist Systems
, 1994
"... Reinforcement learning algorithms are a powerful machine learning technique. However, much of the work on these algorithms has been developed with regard to discrete finitestate Markovian problems, which is too restrictive for many realworld environments. Therefore, it is desirable to extend these ..."

PartialOrder Methods for the Verification of Concurrent Systems  An Approach to the StateExplosion Problem
, 1995
"... Statespace exploration techniques are increasingly being used for debugging and proving correct finitestate concurrent reactive systems. The reason for this success is mainly the simplicity of these techniques. Indeed, they are easy to understand, easy to implement and, last but not least, easy to ..."
