Lecture 7: From LTL and CTL to CTL*

Review and comparison of the syntax and semantics of temporal logics LTL and CTL. Distinction between the direct observability of individual runs, and the assessment of alternative possibilities in branching-time logics like CTL. Valuation of CTL formulae on specific transition systems. Distinct expressiveness of LTL and CTL: example to show AF AG is not AFG.

Two items to read for Thursday:

The first of these is an invited conference talk, giving an overview of some work on applying model-checking to problems in systems biology. The second is a more detailed article on the material.
