Final Review

The final is in the testing center and is closed book and closed notes. It consists of one multiple-guess problem and 5 essay problems. Here is a comprehensive list of topics:

  • Create minimum labeled traces such that they satisfy a given temporal logic formula
  • Create BDDs from code showing the unique and compute tables as a final answer (IDs must follow the order of creation from ITE)
  • Create a Boolean expression for a transition relation from a simple program like the dining philosophers in the homework
  • Write a Boolean function describing the initial state of a problem and perform reachability analysis using that function and a transition relation
  • Perform CTL model checking using Boolean functions and fix-point computations

I expect the test to take 2 hours of student time.

Midterm Review

One page of notes is allowed for the exam. You are responsible for knowing the testing center hours: double check the schedule for Saturday! Below is a comprehensive list of topics on the exam. Please note that some of the topics were not covered directly by the homework, so you will want to perhaps work a few problems on your own to prepare.

  • Describe the LTL syntax, CTL syntax, and the different in semantics between LTL and CTL
  • Write English descriptions as properties in CTL, LTL, or CTL*. Negate temporal logic formulas.
  • Create minimum labeled traces such that they satisfy a given temporal logic formula.
  • Convert a Kripke structure to a Buechi automaton.
  • Express the language accepted by a Buechi automaton as a regular expression augmented with the omega operator.
  • Compute the intersection of two Buechi automaton.
  • Perform double-depth-first-search on a Buechi automaton.
  • Implement fairness in on-the-fly model checking.
  • Perform explicit state model checking given a Kripke and CTL property.

I expect the test to take at least 1 hour of student time. The total time limit on the test is 2 hours.
