Specification and Automated Verification of Real-Time Behaviour - A
Jørgen H. Andersen
In this paper we sketch a method for specification and automatic verification of real-time software properties. The method combines the IEC 848 norm and the recent specification techniques TCCS (Timed Calculus of Communicating Systems) and TML (Timed Modal Logic) -- supported by an automatic verification tool, EPSILON. The method is illustrated by modelling a small real-life steam generator example and subsequent automated analysis of its properties.
