In [Baier et al., Probabilistic and
Topological Semantics for Timed Automata,
FSTTCS'07] a probabilistic semantics for timed
automata has been defined in order to rule out
unlikely (sequences of) events. The qualitative
model-checking problem for LTL properties has been
investigated, where the aim is to check whether a
given LTL property holds with probability 1 in a
timed automaton, and solved for the class of
single-clock timed automata.
In this paper, we
consider the quantitative model-checking problem for
ω-regular properties: we aim at computing
the exact probability that a given timed automaton
satisfies an ω-regular property. We develop
a framework in which we can compute a closed-form
expression for this probability; we furthermore give
an approximation algorithm, and finally prove that
we can decide the threshold problem in that
framework.

In this paper, we propose a novel framework for the
synthesis of robust and optimal energy-aware
controllers. The framework is based on energy timed
automata, allowing for easy expression of
timing-constraints and variable energy-rates. We
prove decidability of the energy-constrained
infinite-run problem in settings with both certainty
and uncertainty of the energy-rates. We also
consider the optimization problem of identifying the
minimal upper bound that will permit existence of
energy-constrained infinite runs. Our algorithms are
based on quantifier elimination for linear real
arithmetic. Using Mathematica and Mjollnir, we
illustrate our framework through a real industrial
example of a hydraulic oil pump. Compared with
previous approaches our method is completely
automated and provides improved results.

results of Brihaye, Bruyère and Raskin about
weighted timed automata, an extension of timed
automata with a cost variable. Our results rely on a
new encoding of the two counters of a Minsky machine
that only require three clocks and one stopwatch
cost, while previous reductions required five clocks
and one stopwatch cost.

We propose a procedure for computing Nash equilibria
in multi-player timed games with reachability
objectives. Our procedure is based on the
construction of a finite concurrent game, and on a
generic characterization of Nash equilibria in
(possibly infinite) concurrent games. Along the way,
we use our characterization to compute Nash
equilibria in finite concurrent games.

We study two-player timed games where the objectives
of the two players are not opposite. We focus on the
standard notion of Nash equilibrium and propose a
series of transformations that builds two finite
turn-based games out of a timed game, with a precise
correspondence between Nash equilibria in the
original and in final games. This provides us with
an algorithm to compute Nash equilibria in
two-player timed games for large classes of

Reconfigurable broadcast networks provide a
convenient formalism for modelling and reasoning
about networks of mobile agents broadcasting
messages to other agents following some (evolving)
communication topology. The parameterized
verification of such models aims at checking whether
a given property holds irrespective of the initial
configuration (number of agents, initial states and
initial communication topology). We focus here on
the synchronization property, asking whether
all agents converge to a set of target states after
some execution. This problem is known to be
decidable in polynomial time when no constraints are
imposed on the evolution of the communication
topology (while it is undecidable for static
broadcast networks).
In this paper we
investigate how various constraints on
reconfigurations affect the decidability and
complexity of the synchronization problem.
In particular, we show that when bounding the number
of reconfigured links between two communications
steps by a constant, synchronization becomes
undecidable; on the other hand, synchronization
remains decidable in PTIME when the bound grows with
the number of agents.

We study the problem of the existence (and
computation) of Nash equilibria in multi-player
concurrent games with Büchi-definable
objectives. First, when the objectives are Büchi
conditions on the game, we prove that the existence
problem can be solved in polynomial time. In a
second part, we extend our technique to objectives
defined by deterministic Büchi automata, and
prove that the problem then becomes
EXPTIME-complete. We prove PSPACE-completeness for
the case where the Büchi automata are 1-weak.

We consider concurrent games played on graphs, in
which each player has several qualitative (e.g.
reachability or Büchi) objectives, and a
preorder on these objectives (for instance the
counting order, where the aim is to maximise the
number of objectives that are fulfilled).
We
study two fundamental problems in that setting:
(1) the value problem, which aims at deciding
the existence of a strategy that ensures a given
payoff; (2) the Nash equilibrium problem,
where we want to decide the existence of a Nash
equilibrium (possibly with a condition on the
payoffs). We characterise the exact complexities of
these problems for several relevant preorders, and
several kinds of objectives.

We study pure-strategy Nash equilibria in
multiplayer concurrent games, for a variety of
omega-regular objectives. For simple objectives
(e.g. reachability, Büchi objectives), we
transform the problem of deciding the existence of a
Nash equilibrium in a given concurrent game into
that of deciding the existence of a winning strategy
in a turn-based two-player game (with a refined
objective). We use that transformation to design
algorithms for computing Nash equilibria, which in
most cases have optimal worst-case complexity. For
automata-defined objectives, we extend the above
algorithms using a simulation relation which allows
us to consider the product of the game with the
automata defining the objectives. Building on
previous algorithms for simple qualitative
objectives, we define and study a semi-quantitative
framework, where all players have several boolean
objectives equipped with a preorder; a player may
for instance want to satisfy all her objectives, or
to maximise the number of objectives that she
achieves. In most cases, we prove that the
algorithms we obtain match the complexity of the
problem they address.

TPTL and MTL are two classical timed extensions of
LTL. In this paper, we positively answer a
15-year-old conjecture that TPTL is strictly more
expressive than MTL. But we show that, surprisingly,
the TPTL formula proposed by Alur and Henzinger for
witnessing this conjecture can be expressed in MTL.
More generally, we show that TPTL formulae using
only the F modality can be translated into
MTL.

Weighted timed automata have been defined in the
early 2000's for modelling resource-consumption or
-allocation problems in real-time systems. Optimal
reachability is decidable in weighted timed
automata, and a symbolic forward algorithm has been
developed to solve that problem. This algorithm uses
so-called priced zones, an extension of standard
zones with cost functions. In order to ensure
termination, the algorithm requires clocks to be
bounded. For unpriced timed automata, much work has
been done to develop sound abstractions adapted to
the forward exploration of timed automata, ensuring
termination of the model-checking algorithm without
bounding the clocks. In this paper, we take
advantage of recent developments on abstractions for
timed automata, and propose an algorithm allowing
for symbolic analysis of all weighted timed
automata, without requiring bounded clocks.

We extend the alternating-time temporal logics ATL
and ATL* with strategy
contexts and memory constraints: the first
extension make strategy quantifiers to not
"forget" the strategies being executed by the
other players. The second extension allows strategy
quantifiers to restrict to memoryless or
bounded-memory strategies.
We first consider
expressiveness issues. We show that our logics can
express important properties such as equilibria, and
we formally compare them with other similar
formalisms (ATL, ATL*, Game Logic,
Strategy Logic, ...). We then address the problem of
model-checking for our logics, providing a PSPACE
algoritm for the sublogics involving only memoryless
strategies and an EXPSPACE algorithm for the
bounded-memory case.

In this paper, we extend the classical notion of
strategies in turn-based finite games by allowing
several moves to be selected. We define and study a
quantitative measure for permissivity of such
strategies by assigning penalties when blocking
transitions. We prove that for reachability
objectives, most permissive strategies exist, can be
chosen memoryless, and can be computed in polynomial
time, while it is in
NP∩coNP for discounted and
mean penalties.

In this paper, we study one-clock priced timed
automata in which prices can grow linearly
(dp/dt=k) or exponentially
(dp/dt=kp), with discontinuous updates
on edges. We propose EXPTIME algorithms to decide
the existence of controllers that ensure existence
of infinite runs or reachability of some goal
location with non-negative observer value all along
the run. These algorithms consist in computing the
optimal delays that should be elapsed in each
location along a run, so that the final observer
value is maximized (and never goes below zero).

The problems of time-dependent behavior in general,
and dynamic resource allocation in particular,
pervade many aspects of modern life. Prominent
examples range from reliability and efficient use of
communication resources in a telecommunication
network to the allocation of tracks in a continental
railway network, from scheduling the usage of
computational resources on a chip for durations of
nano-seconds to the weekly, monthly, or longer-range
reactive planning in a factory or a supply chain.

examples range from reliability and efficient use of
communication resources in a telecommunication

This chapter surveys timed automata as a formalism
for model checking real-time systems. We begin with
introducing the model, as an extension of
finite-state automata with real-valued variables for
measuring time. We then present the main
model-checking results in this framework, and give a
hint about some recent extensions (namely weighted
timed automata and timed games).

We study the problems of existence and construction
of infinite schedules for finite weighted automata
and one-clock weighted timed automata, subject to
boundary constraints on the accumulated weight. More
specifically, we consider automata equipped with
positive and negative weights on transitions and
locations, corresponding to the production and
consumption of some resource (e.g. energy).
We ask the question whether there exists an infinite
path for which the accumulated weight for any finite
prefix satisfies certain constraints
(e.g. remains between 0 and some given
upper-bound). We also consider a game version of the
above, where certain transitions may be
uncontrollable.

Timed automata are a convenient framework for
modelling and reasoning about real-time systems.
While these models are now very well-understood,
they do not offer a convenient way of taking timing
imprecisions into account. Several solutions (e.g.
parametric guard enlargement) have recently been
proposed over the last ten years to take such
imprecisions into account. In this paper, we propose
a new approach for handling robust reachability,
based on permissive strategies. While classical
strategies propose to play an action at an exact
point in time, permissive strategies return an
interval of possible dates when to play the selected
action. With such a permissive strategy, we
associate a penalty, which is the inverse of the
length of the proposed interval, and accumulates
along the run. We show that in that setting, optimal
strategies can be computed in polynomial time for
one-clock timed automata.

Synchronizing a (deterministic, finite-state)
automaton is the problem of finding a sequence of
actions to be played in the automaton in order to
end up in the same state independently of the
starting state. We consider synchronization
with LTL constraints on the executions
leading to synchronization, extending the results
of [Petra Wolf. Synchronization under dynamic
constraints. FSTTCS'20] by showing that the problem
is PSPACE-complete for LTL as well
as for restricted fragments (involving only
modality F or G), while it is
NP-complete for constraints expressed using
only modality X.

Extending formal verification techniques to handle
quantitative aspects, both for the models and for
the properties to be checked, has become a central
research topic over the last twenty years. Following
several recent works, we study model checking for
(one-dimensional) weighted Kripke structures with
positive and negative weights, and temporal logics
constraining the total and/or average weight. We
prove decidability when only accumulated weight is
constrained, while allowing average-weight
constraints alone already is undecidable.

Strategy Logic is a powerful specification language
for expressing non-zero-sum properties of
multi-player games. SL conveniently extends the
logic ATL with explicit quantification and
assignment of strategies. In this paper, we consider
games over one-counter automata, and a quantitative
extension 1cSL of SL with assertions over the value

that, if decidable, model checking the so-called
Boolean-goal fragment of 1cSL has non-elementary
complexity; we actually prove the result for the
Boolean-goal fragment of SL over finite-state games,
which was an open question in (Mogavero
et al. Reasoning about strategies: On the
model-checking problem. 2014). As a first step
towards proving decidability, we then show that the
Boolean-goal fragment of 1cSL over one-counter games
enjoys a nice periodicity property.

for expressing non-zero-sum properties of
multi-player games. SL conveniently extends the
logic ATL with explicit quantification and
assignment of strategies. In this paper, we consider
games over one-counter automata, and a quantitative
extension 1cSL of SL with assertions over the value
of the counter. We prove two results: we first show
that, if decidable, model checking the so-called

We define and study a slight variation on the
semantics of Strategy Logic: while in the classical
semantics, all strategies are shifted during the
evaluation of temporal modalities, we propose to
only shift the strategies that have been assigned to
a player, thus matching the intuition that we can
assign the very same strategy to the players at
different points in time. We prove that
surprisingly, this renders the model-checking
problem undecidable.

We focus on the problem of finding (the size of)
a minimal winning coalition in a multi-player game.
More precisely, we prove that deciding whether there
is a winning coalition of size at most k is
NP-complete, while deciding whether k is the
optimal size is DP-complete. We also study different
variants of our original problem: the function
problem, where the aim is to effectively compute the
coalition; more succinct encoding of the game; and
richer families of winning objectives.

In this paper, we are interested in the synthesis of
schedulers in double-weighted Markov decision
processes, which satisfy both a percentile
constraint over a weighted reachability condition,
and a quantitative constraint on the expected value
of a random variable defined using a weighted
reachability condition. This problem is inspired by
the modelization of an electric-vehicle charging
problem. We study the cartography of the problem,
when one parameter varies, and show how a partial
cartography can be obtained via two sequences of
opimization problems. We discuss completeness and
feasability of the method.

We consider the problems of efficiently diagnosing
(and predicting) what did (and will) happen after a
given sequence of observations of the execution of a
partially-observable one-clock timed automaton. This
is made difficult by the facts that timed automata
are infinite-state systems, and that they can in
general not be determinized.
We introduce timed
markings as a formalism to keep track of the
evolution of the set of reachable configurations
over time. We show how timed markings can be used to
efficiently represent the closure under silent
transitions of such automata. We report on our
implementation of this approach compared to the
approach of [Tripakis, Fault diagnosis for timed
automata, 2002], and provide some insight to a
generalization of our approach to n-clock
timed automata.

We consider average-energy games, where the goal is
to minimize the long-run average of the accumulated
energy. Decidability of average-energy games with a
lower-bound constraint on the energy level (but no
upper bound) is an open problem; in particular,
there is no known upper bound on the memory that is
required for winning strategies.
By reducing
average-energy games with lower-bounded energy to
infinite-state mean-payoff games and analyzing the
frequency of low-energy configurations, we show an
almost tight doubly-exponential upper bound on the
necessary memory, and that the winner of
average-energy games with lower-bounded energy can
be determined in doubly-exponential time. We also
prove EXPSPACE-hardness of this problem.
Finally, we consider multi-dimensional extensions of
all types of average-energy games: without bounds,
with only a lower bound, and with both a lower and
an upper bound on the energy. We show that the
fully-bounded version is the only case to remain
decidable in multiple dimensions.

be determined in doubly-exponential time. We~also
prove EXPSPACE-hardness of this problem.\par
Finally, we~consider multi-dimensional extensions of
all types of average-energy games: without bounds,
with only a lower bound, and with both a lower and
an upper bound on the energy. We show that the
fully-bounded version is the only case to remain
decidable in multiple dimensions.},

Model checking (MC) is a formal verification
technique which has been known and still knows a
resounding success in the computer science
community. Realizing that the distributed power
control (PC) problem can be modeled by a timed game
between a given transmitter and its environment, the
authors wanted to know whether this approach can be
applied to distributed PC. It turns out that it can
be applied successfully and allows one to analyze
realistic scenarios including the case of discrete
transmit powers and games with incomplete
information. The proposed methodology is as follows.
We state some objectives a transmitter-receiver pair
would like to reach. The network is modeled by a
game where transmitters are considered as timed
automata interacting with each other. The objectives
are then translated into timed alternating-time
temporal logic formulae and MC is exploited to know
whether the desired properties are verified and
determine a winning strategy.

A weighted timed game is a timed game with extra
quantitative information representing e.g. energy
consumption. Optimizing the cost for reaching a
target is a natural question, which has been
investigated for ten years. Existence of optimal
strategies is known to be undecidable in general,
and only very restricted classes of games have been
described for which optimal cost and almost-optimal
strategies can be computed.
In this paper, we
show that the value problem is undecidable in
general weighted timed games. The undecidability
proof relies on that for the existence of optimal
strategies and on a diagonalization construction
recently designed in the context of quantitative
temporal logics. We then provide an algorithm to
compute arbitrary approximations of the value in a
game, and almost-optimal strategies. The algorithm
applies in a large subclass of weighted timed games,
and is the first approximation scheme which is
designed in the current context.

We introduce a new formalism called automata
over a timed domain which provides an adequate
framework for the determinization of timed systems.
In this formalism, determinization w.r.t. timed
language is always possible at the cost of changing
the timed domain. We give a condition for
determinizability of automata over a timed domain
without changing the timed domain, which allows us
to recover several known determinizable classes of
timed systems, such as strongly-non-zeno timed
automata, integer-reset timed automata, perturbed
timed automata, etc. Moreover in the case of timed
automata this condition encompasses most
determinizability conditions from the literature.

Dynamic complexity is concerned with updating the
output of a problem when the input is slightly
changed. We study the dynamic complexity of model
checking a fixed monadic second-order formula over
evolving subgraphs of a fixed maximal graph having
bounded tree-width; here the subgraph evolves by
losing or gaining edges (from the maximal graph).
We show that this problem is in DynFO (with LOGSPACE
precomputation), via a reduction to a Dyck
reachability problem on an acyclic automaton.

We consider the problems of efficiently diagnosing
and predicting what did (or will) happen in a
partially-observable one-clock timed automaton.
We introduce timed sets as a formalism to keep track
of the evolution of the reachable configurations
over time, and use our previous work on automata
over timed domains to build a candidate diagnoser
for our timed automaton. We report on our
implementation of this approach compared to the
approach of [Tripakis, Fault diagnosis for timed
autmata, 2002].

We introduce and study
SL[F]—a quantitative
extension of SL (Strategy Logic),
one of the most natural and expressive logics
describing strategic behaviours. The satisfaction
value of an SL[F] formula
is a real value in [0,1], reflecting "how
much" or "how well" the strategic on-going
objectives of the underlying agents are satisfied.
We demonstrate the applications of
SL[F] in quantitative
reasoning about multi-agent systems, by showing how
it can express concepts of stability in multi-agent
systems, and how it generalises some fuzzy temporal
logics. We also provide a model-checking algorithm
for our logic, based on a quantitative extension of
Quantified CTL.

Temporal logics are extensively used for the
specification of on-going behaviors of computer
systems. Two significant developments in this area
are the extension of traditional temporal logics
with modalities that enable the specification of
on-going strategic behaviors in multi-agent systems,
and the transition of temporal logics to a
quantitative setting, where different satisfaction
values enable the specifier to formalize concepts
such as certainty or quality. In the first class,
SL (Strategy Logic) is one of the most natural and
expressive logics describing strategic behaviors. In
the second class, a notable logic is
LTL[F], which extends
LTL with quality operators.
In this
work we introduce and study
SL[F], which enables the
specification of quantitative strategic behaviors.

provides the first decidability result for a
quantitative extension of Strategy Logic. In

We consider the model of priced (a.k.a. weighted)
timed automata, an extension of timed automata with
cost information on both locations and transitions.
We prove that model-checking this class of models
against the logic WCTL, CTL with cost-constrained
modalities, is PSPACE-complete under the
"single-clock" assumption. In contrast, it has
been recently proved that the model-checking problem
is undecidable for this model as soon as the system
has three clocks. We also prove that the
model-checking of WCTL becomes undecidable, even
under this "single-clock" assumption.

We investigate a number of problems related to
infinite runs of weighted timed automata, subject to
lower-bound constraints on the accumulated weight.
Closing an open problem from [Bouyer
et al., "Infinite runs in weighted timed
automata with energy constraints", FORMATS'08], we
show that the existence of an infinite
lower-bound-constrained run is—for us somewhat
unexpectedly—undecidable for weighted timed
automata with four or more clocks.
This
undecidability result assumes a fixed and know
initial credit. We show that the related problem of
existence of an initial credit for which there ex-
ist a feasible run is decidable in PSPACE. We also
investigate the variant of these problems where only
bounded-duration runs are considered, showing that
this restriction makes our original problem
decidable in NEXPTIME. Finally, we prove that the
universal versions of all those problems (i.e,
checking that all the considered runs satisfy the
lower-bound constraint) are decidable in PSPACE.

We propose a new model for timed games, based on
concurrent game structures (CGSs). Compared to the
classical timed game automata of Asarin
et al., our timed CGSs are "more
concurrent", in the sense that they always allow
all the agents to act on the system, independently
of the delay they want to elapse before their
action. Timed CGSs weaken the "element of
surprise" of timed game automata reported by
de Alfaro et al.
We prove that our model
has nice properties, in particular that
model-checking timed CGSs against timed
ATL is decidable via region
abstraction, and in particular that strategies are
"region-stable" if winning objectives are. We
also propose a new extension of TATL,
containing ATL*, which we
call TALTL. We prove that
model-checking this logic remains decidable on timed
CGSs. Last, we explain how our algorithms can be
adapted in order to rule out Zeno (co-)strategies,
based on the ideas of Henzinger et al.

abstract = {We propose a new model for timed games, based on
concurrent game structures~(CGSs). Compared to the
classical \emph{timed game automata} of~Asarin
\emph{et~al.}, our timed~CGSs are {"}more
concurrent{"}, in the sense that they always allow
all the agents to act on the system, independently
of the delay they want to elapse before their
action. Timed CGSs weaken the {"}element of
surprise{"} of timed game automata reported by
de~Alfaro \emph{et~al.}\par We prove that our model
has nice properties, in particular that
model-checking timed CGSs against timed
\(\textsf{ATL}\) is decidable \emph{via} region
abstraction, and in particular that strategies are
{"}region-stable{"} if winning objectives are. We
also propose a new extension of \(\textsf{TATL}\),
containing~\(\textsf{ATL}^{*}\), which we
call~\(\textsf{TALTL}\). We~prove that
model-checking this logic remains decidable on timed
CGSs. Last, we explain how our algorithms can be
adapted in order to rule out Zeno (co-)strategies,
based on the ideas of Henzinger \emph{et~al.}},
}
Since the early 1990's, classical temporal logics
have been extended with timing constraints. While
temporal logics only express contraints on the order
of events, their timed extensions can add
quantitative constraints on delays between those
events. We survey expressiveness and algorithmic
results on those logics, and discuss semantic
choices that may look unimportant but do have an
impact on the questions we consider.

Timed automata follow a mathematical semantics,
which assumes perfect precision and synchrony of
clocks. Since this hypothesis does not hold in
digital systems, properties proven formally on a
timed automaton may be lost at implementation. In
order to ensure implementability, several approaches
have been considered, corresponding to different
hypotheses on the implementation platform. We
address two of these: a timed automaton is samplable
if its semantics is preserved under a discretization
of time; it is robust if its semantics is preserved
when all timing constraints are relaxed by some
small positive parameter. We propose a construction
which makes timed automata implementable in the
above sense: From any timed
automaton A, we build a timed
automaton A' that exhibits the same
behaviour as A, and moreover is both
robust and samplable by construction.

We study the model-checking problem for WMTL,
a cost-extension of the linear-time timed temporal
logic MTL, that is interpreted over weighted timed
automata. We draw a complete picture of the
decidability for that problem: it is decidable only
for the class of one-clock weighted timed automata
with a restricted stopwatch cost, and any slight
extension of this model leads to undecidability.
We finally give some consequences on the
undecidability of linear hybrid automata.

Averaging in LTL.
In CONCUR'14,
Lecture Notes in Computer Science 8704, pages 266-280. Springer-Verlag, September 2014.
For the accurate analysis of computerized systems,
powerful quantitative formalisms have been designed,
together with efficient verification algorithms.
However, verification has mostly remained
boolean—either a property is true, or it is false.
We believe that this is too crude in a context where
quantitative information and constraints are
crucial: correctness should be quantified!
In a
recent line of works, several authors have proposed
quantitative semantics for temporal logics, using
e.g. discounting modalities (which give less
importance to distant events). In the present paper,
we define and study a quantitative semantics of LTL
with averaging modalities, either on the long
run or within an until modality. This, in a way,
relaxes the classical Boolean semantics of LTL, and
provides a measure of certain properties of a model.
We prove that computing and even approximating the
value of a formula in this logic is undecidable.

A channel machine consists of a finite
controller together with several fifo channels; the
controller can read messages from the head of a
channel and write messages to the tail of a channel.
In this paper we focus on channel machines with
insertion errors, i.e., machines in whose
channels messages can spontaneously appear. We
consider the invariance problem: does a given
insertion channel machine have an infinite
computation all of whose configurations satisfy a
given predicate? We show that this problem is
primitive-recursive if the predicate is closed under
message losses. We also give a non-elementary lower
bound for the invariance problem under this
restriction. Finally, using the previous result, we

controller together with several fifo channels; the
controller can read messages from the head of a
channel and write messages to the tail of a channel.
In this paper we focus on channel machines with
\emph{insertion errors}, i.e., machines in whose
channels messages can spontaneously appear. We
consider the invariance problem: does a given
insertion channel machine have an infinite
computation all of whose configurations satisfy a
given predicate? We show that this problem is
primitive-recursive if the predicate is closed under
message losses. We also give a non-elementary lower
bound for the invariance problem under this
restriction. Finally, using the previous result, we
show that the satisfiability problem for the safety
fragment of Metric Temporal Logic is
non-elementary.},

We study nondeterministic strategies in parity games
with the aim of computing a most permissive winning
strategy. Following earlier work, we measure
permissiveness in terms of the average
number/weight of transitions blocked by a
strategy. Using a translation into mean-payoff
parity games, we prove that deciding (the
permissiveness of) a most permissive winning
strategy is in NP∩coNP.
Along the way, we provide a new study of mean-payoff
parity games. In particular, we give a new algorithm
for solving these games, which beats all previously
known algorithms for this problem.

In an influential paper titled "The Benefits of
Relaxing Punctuality", Alur, Feder, and Henzinger
introduced Metric Interval Temporal Logic (MITL) as
a fragment of the real-time logic Metric Temporal
Logic (MTL) in which exact or punctual timing
constraints are banned. Their main result showed
that model checking and satisfiability for MITL are
both EXPSPACE-Complete.
Until recently, it was
widely believed that admitting even the simplest
punctual specifications in any linear-time temporal
logic would automatically lead to undecidability.
Although this was recently disproved, until now no
punctual fragment of MTL was known to have even
primitive recursive complexity (with certain
decidable fragments having provably non-primitive
recursive complexity).
In this paper we identify
a `co-flat' subset of MTL that is capable of
expressing a large class of punctual specifications
and for which model checking (although not
satisfiability) has no complexity cost over MITL.
Our logic is moreover qualitatively different
from MITL in that it can express properties that are
not timed-regular. Correspondingly, our decision
procedures do not involve translating formulas into
finite-state automata, but rather into certain kinds
of reversal-bounded Turing machines. Using this
translation we show that the model checking problem
for our logic is EXPSPACE-Complete, and is even
PSPACE-Complete if timing constraints are encoded in
unary.

Metric Interval Temporal Logic (MITL) is a popular
formalism for expressing real-time specifications.
This logic achieves decidability by restricting the
precision of timing constraints, in particular, by
banning so-called punctual specifications.
In this paper we introduce a significantly more
expressive logic that can express a wide variety of
punctual specifications, but whose model-checking
problem has the same complexity as that of MITL.
We conclude that for model checking the most
commonly occurring specifications, such as
invariance and bounded response, punctuality can be
accommodated at no cost.

The development of formal methods for control design
is an important challenge with potential
applications in a wide range of safety-critical
cyber-physical systems. Focusing on switched
dynamical systems, we propose a new abstraction,
based on time-varying regions of invariance
(the control funnels), that models behaviors
of systems as timed automata. The main advantage of
this method is that it allows automated verification
of formal specifications and reactive controller
synthesis without discretizing the evolution of the
state of the system. Efficient constructions are
possible in the case of linear dynamics.
We demonstrate the potential of our approach with
two examples.

Formal verification of timed systems is well
understood, but their implementation is still
challenging. Recent works by Raskin et al.
have brought out a model of parameterized timed
automata that can be used to prove
implementability of timed systems for safety
properties. We define here a more general notion of
robust model-checking for linear-time properties,
which consists in verifying whether a property still
holds even if the transitions are slightly delayed
or expedited. We provide PSPACE algorithms for the
robust model-checking of Büchi-like and LTL
properties. We also verify bounded-response-time
properties.

Secure Equilibria in Weighted Games.
In CSL/ LICS'14.
ACM Press, July 2014.
Two-player quantitative zero-sum games provide a
natural framework to synthesize controllers with
performance guarantees for reactive systems within
an uncontrollable environment. Classical settings
include mean-payoff games, where the objective is to
optimize the long-run average gain per action, and
energy games, where the system has to avoid running
out of energy.
We study average-energy
games, where the goal is to optimize the long-run
average of the accumulated energy. We show that this
objective arises naturally in several applications,
and that it yields interesting connections with
previous concepts in the literature. We prove that
deciding the winner in such games is in
NP∩coNP and at least as
hard as solving mean-payoff games, and we establish
that memoryless strategies suffice to win. We also
consider the case where the system has to minimize
the average-energy while maintaining the accumulated
energy within predefined bounds at all times: this
corresponds to operating with a finite-capacity
storage for energy. We give results for one-player
and two-player games, and establish complexity
bounds and memory requirements.

We study the almost-sure reachability problem in a
distributed system obtained as the asynchronous
composition of N copies (called
processes) of the same automaton (called
protocol), that can communicate via a shared
register with finite domain. The automaton has two
types of transitions: write-transitions update the
value of the register, while read-transitions move
to a new state depending on the content of the
register. Non-determinism is resolved by a
stochastic scheduler. Given a protocol, we focus on
almost-sure reachability of a target state by one of
the processes. The answer to this problem naturally
depends on the number N of processes. However,
we prove that our setting has a cut-off property :
the answer to the almost-sure reachability problem
is constant when N is large enough; we then
develop an EXPSPACE algorithm deciding whether this
constant answer is positive or negative.

Timed automata are governed by a mathematical
semantics which assumes perfectly continuous and
precise clocks. This requirement is not satised by
digital hardware on which the models are
implemented. In fact, it was shown that the presence
of imprecisions, however small they may be, may
yield extra behaviours. Therefore correctness proven
on the formal model does not imply correctness of
the real system.
The problem of robust
model-checking was then dened to circumvent this
inconsistency. It consists in computing a bound on
the imprecision under which the system will be
correct.
In this work, we show that robust
model-checking against ω-regular properties
for timed automata can be reduced to standard
model-checking of timed automata, by computing an
adequate bound on the imprecision. This yields a new
algorithm for robust model-checking of
ω-regular properties, which is both optimal
and valid for general timed automata.

Reachability checking is one of the most basic
problems in verification. By solving this problem,
one synthesizes a strategy that dictates the actions
to be performed for ensuring that the target
location is reached. In this work, we are interested
in synthesizing "robust" strategies for ensuring
reachability of a location in a timed automaton;
with "robust", we mean that it must still ensure
reachability even when the delays are perturbed by
the environment. We model this perturbed semantics
as a game between the controller and its
environment, and solve the parameterized robust
reachability problem: we show that the existence of
an upper bound on the perturbations under which
there is a strategy reaching a target location is
EXPTIME-complete.

In this paper we survey several approaches to the
robustness of timed automata, that is, the ability
of a system to resist to slight perturbations or
errors. We will concentrate on robustness against
timing errors which can be due to measuring errors,
imprecise clocks, and unexpected runtime behaviors
such as execution times that are longer or shorter
than expected.
We consider the perturbation
model of guard enlargement and formulate several
robust verification problems that have been studied
recently, including robustness analysis, robust
implementation, and robust control.

Weighted timed automata extend timed automata with
cost variables that can be used to model the
evolution of various quantities. Although
cost-optimal reachability is decidable (in
polynomial space) on this model, it becomes
undecidable on weighted timed games. This paper
studies cost-optimal reachability problems on
weighted timed automata and games under robust
semantics. More precisely, we consider two
perturbation game semantics that introduce
imprecisions in the standard semantics, and bring
robustness properties w.r.t. timing imprecisions to
controllers. We give a polynomial-space algorithm
for weighted timed automata, and prove the
undecidability of cost-optimal reachability on
weighted timed games, showing that the problem is
robustly undecidable.

We study mixed-strategy Nash equilibria in
multiplayer deterministic concurrent games played on
graphs, with terminal-reward payoffs (that is,
absorbing states with a value for each player). We
show undecidability of the existence of a
constrained Nash equilibrium (the constraint
requiring that one player should have maximal
payoff), with only three players and 0/1-rewards
(i.e., reachability objectives). This has to be
compared with the undecidability result by Ummels
and Wojtczak for turn-based games which requires 14
players and general rewards. Our proof has various
interesting consequences: (i) the undecidability of
the existence of a Nash equilibrium with a
constraint on the social welfare;
(ii) the undecidability of the existence of an
(unconstrained) Nash equilibrium in concurrent games
with terminal-reward payoffs.

Reachability checking is one of the most basic

a game, one can synthesize a strategy that dictates
the actions to be performed for ensuring that the
target location is reached. In this work, we are

for ensuring reachability of a location in timed
automata. By robust, we mean that it must still
ensure reachability even when the delays are

perturbed semantics as a game between the controller
and its environment, and solve the parameterized
robust reachability problem: we show that the
existence of an upper bound on the perturbations
under which there is a strategy reaching a target
location is EXPTIME-complete. We also extend our
algorithm, with the same complexity, to turn-based
timed games, where the successor state is entirely
determined by the environment in some locations.

We study the existence of mixed-strategy equilibria
in concurrent games played on graphs. While
existence is guaranteed with safety objectives for
each player, Nash equilibria need not exist when
players are given arbitrary terminal-reward
objectives, and their existence is undecidable with
qualitative reachability objectives (and only three
players). However, these results rely on the fact
that the players can enforce infinite plays while
trying to improve their payoffs. In this paper, we
introduce a relaxed notion of equilibria, where
deviations are imprecise. We prove that contrary to
Nash equilibria, such (stationary) equilibria always
exist, and we develop a PSPACE algorithm to compute
one.

Congestion games are a classical type of games
studied in game theory, in which n players choose a
resource, and their individual cost increases with
the number of other players choosing the same
resource. In network congestion games (NCGs), the
resources correspond to simple paths in a graph,
e.g. representing routing options from a source to a
target. In this paper, we introduce a variant
of NCGs, referred to as dynamic NCGs: in this
setting, players take transitions synchronously,
they select their next transitions dynamically, and
they are charged a cost that depends on the number
of players simultaneously using the same transition.
We study, from a complexity perspective,
standard concepts of game theory in dynamic NCGs:
social optima, Nash equilibria, and subgame perfect
equilibria. Our contributions are the following: the
existence of a strategy profile with social cost
bounded by a constant is in PSPACE and NP-hard.
(Pure) Nash equilibria always exist in dynamic NCGs;
the existence of a Nash equilibrium with bounded
cost can be decided in EXPSPACE, and computing a
witnessing strategy profile can be done in
doubly-exponential time. The existence of a subgame
perfect equilibrium with bounded cost can be decided
in 2EXPSPACE, and a witnessing strategy profile can
be computed in triply-exponential time.

We consider atomic congestion games on
series-parallel networks, and study the structure of
the sets of Nash equilibria and social local optima
on a given network when the number of players
varies. We establish that these sets are definable
in Presburger arithmetic and that they admit
semilinear representations whose all period vectors
have a common direction. As an application, we prove
that the prices of anarchy and stability converge
to 1 as the number of players goes to infinity, and
show how to exploit these semilinear representations
to compute these ratios precisely for a given
network and number of players.

We consider the parameterized verification problem
for distributed algorithms where the goal is to
develop techniques to prove the correctness of a
given algorithm regardless of the number of
participating processes. Motivated by an
asynchronous binary consensus algorithm of
[J. Aspnes; Fast deterministic consensus in a noisy
environment; J. Algorithms, 2002], we consider
round-based distributed algorithms communicating
with shared memory. A particular challenge in these
systems is that 1) the number of processes is
unbounded, and, more importantly, 2) there is a
fresh set of registers at each round. A verification
algorithm thus needs to manage both sources of
infinity. In this setting, we prove that the safety
verification problem, which consists in deciding
whether all possible executions avoid a given error
state, is PSPACE-complete. For negative instances of
the safety verification problem, we also provide
exponential lower and upper bounds on the minimal
number of processes needed for an error execution
and on the minimal round on which the error state
can be covered.
