Some perspectives of infinitestate verification
 In Proc. ATVA 2005, LNCS 3707
, 2005
"... Abstract. We report on recent progress in the study of infinite transition systems for which interesting properties (like reachability of designated states) can be checked algorithmically. Two methods for the generation of such models are discussed: the construction from simpler models via operation ..."

Models of InfiniteState Systems with Constraints

"... We extend a widely used concept of rewrite systems with a mechanism for computing with partial information in a form similar to the one used in concurrent constraint programming. We present how this extension changes the expressive power of rewrite systems classes which are included in Mayr’s PRS ..."

We extend a widely used concept of rewrite systems with a mechanism for computing with partial information in a form similar to the one used in concurrent constraint programming. We present how this extension changes the expressive power of rewrite systems classes which are included in Mayr’s PRS hierarchy [May97b]. The new classes (fcBPA, fcBPP, fcPA, fcPAD, fcPAN, fcPRS) are described and inserted into the hierarchy.
Decidability of Model Checking for InfiniteState Concurrent Systems
 Acta Informatica
"... We study the decidability of the model checking problem for linear and branching time logics, and two models of concurrent computation, namely Petri nets and Basic Parallel Processes. 1 Introduction Most techniques for the verification of concurrent systems proceed by an exhaustive traversal of the ..."

of the state space. Therefore, they are inherently incapable of considering systems with infinitely many states. Recently, some new methods have been developed in order to at least palliate this problem. Using them, several verification problems for some restricted infinitestate models have been shown
Symbolic Model Checking for Realtime Systems
 INFORMATION AND COMPUTATION
, 1992
"... We describe finitestate programs over realnumbered time in a guardedcommand language with realvalued clocks or, equivalently, as finite automata with realvalued clocks. Model checking answers the question which states of a realtime program satisfy a branchingtime specification (given in an ..."

WaitFree Synchronization
 ACM Transactions on Programming Languages and Systems
, 1993
"... A waitfree implementation of a concurrent data object is one that guarantees that any process can complete any operation in a finite number of steps, regardless of the execution speeds of the other processes. The problem of constructing a waitfree implementation of one data object from another lie ..."

A waitfree implementation of a concurrent data object is one that guarantees that any process can complete any operation in a finite number of steps, regardless of the execution speeds of the other processes. The problem of constructing a waitfree implementation of one data object from another lies at the heart of much recent work in concurrent algorithms, concurrent data structures, and multiprocessor architectures. In the first part of this paper, we introduce a simple and general technique, based on reduction to a consensus protocol, for proving statements of the form "there is no waitfree implementation of X by Y ." We derive a hierarchy of objects such that no object at one level has a waitfree implementation in terms of objects at lower levels. In particular, we show that atomic read/write registers, which have been the focus of much recent attention, are at the bottom of the hierarchy: they cannot be used to construct waitfree implementations of many simple and familiar da...
Alternatingtime Temporal Logic
 Journal of the ACM
, 1997
"... Temporal logic comes in two varieties: lineartime temporal logic assumes implicit universal quantification over all paths that are generated by system moves; branchingtime temporal logic allows explicit existential and universal quantification over all paths. We introduce a third, more general var ..."

This paper describes the language Lustre, which is a dataflow synchronous language, designed for programming reactive systems  such as automatic control and monitoring systems  as well as for describing hardware. The dataflow aspect of Lustre makes it very close to usual description tools in these domains (blockdiagrams, networks of operators, dynamical samplessystems, etc: : : ), and its synchronous interpretation makes it well suited for handling time in programs. Moreover, this synchronous interpretation allows it to be compiled into an efficient sequential program. Finally, the Lustre formalism is very similar to temporal logics. This allows the language to be used for both writing programs and expressing program properties, which results in an original program verification methodology. 1 Introduction Reactive systems Reactive systems have been defined as computing systems which continuously interact with a given physical environment, when this environment is unable to sy...
A New Kind of Science

"... “Somebody says, ‘You know, you people always say that space is continuous. How do you know when you get to a small enough dimension that there really are enough points in between, that it isn’t just a lot of dots separated by little distances? ’ Or they say, ‘You know those quantum mechanical amplit ..."

“Somebody says, ‘You know, you people always say that space is continuous. How do you know when you get to a small enough dimension that there really are enough points in between, that it isn’t just a lot of dots separated by little distances? ’ Or they say, ‘You know those quantum mechanical amplitudes you told me about, they’re so complicated and absurd, what makes you think those are right? Maybe they aren’t right. ’ Such remarks are obvious and are perfectly clear to anybody who is working on this problem. It does not do any good to point this out.” —Richard Feynman [1, p.161]

We survey the current techniques to cope with the problem of string matching allowing errors. This is becoming a more and more relevant issue for many fast growing areas such as information retrieval and computational biology. We focus on online searching and mostly on edit distance, explaining the problem and its relevance, its statistical behavior, its history and current developments, and the central ideas of the algorithms and their complexities. We present a number of experiments to compare the performance of the different algorithms and show which are the best choices according to each case. We conclude with some future work directions and open problems.
