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.

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.
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,
showing how it can express and measure concepts like
stability in multi-agent systems, and how it
generalizes some fuzzy temporal logics. We also
provide a model-checking algorithm for
SL[F], based on a
quantitative extension of
Quantified CTL*. Our algorithm
provides the first decidability result for a
quantitative extension of Strategy Logic. In
addition, it can be used for synthesizing strategies
that maximize the quality of the systems' behavior

Network congestion games are a simple model for
reasoning about routing problems in a network. They
are a very popular topic in algorithmic game theory,
and a huge amount of results about existence and
(in)efficiency of equilibrium strategy profiles in
those games have been obtained over the last
20 years.
In particular, the price of anarchy
has been defined as an important notion for
measuring the inefficiency of Nash equilibria.
Generic bounds have been obtained for the price of
anarchy over various classes of networks, but little
attention has been put on the effective computation
of this value for a given network. This talk
presents recent results on this problem in different

Partial observability and controllability are two
well-known issues in test-case synthesis for
reactive systems. We address the problem of partial
control in the synthesis of test cases from
timed-automata specifications. We extend a previous
approach to this problem from the untimed to the
timed setting. This extension requires a deep
reworking of the models, game interpretation and
test-synthesis algorithms. We exhibit strategies of
a game that try to minimize both cooperations of the
system and distance to the satisfaction of a test
purpose or to the next cooperation, and prove they
are winning under some fairness assumptions. This
entails that when turning those strategies into test
cases, we get properties such as soundness and
exhaustiveness of the test synthesis method. We
finally propose a symbolic algorithm to compute
those strategies.

We study games with reachability objectives under
energy constraints. We first prove that under strict
energy constraints (either only lower-bound
constraint or interval constraint), those games are
LOGSPACE-equivalent to energy games with the same
energy constraints but without reachability
objective (i.e., for infinite runs). We then
consider two relaxations of the upper-bound
constraints (while keeping the lower-bound
constraint strict): in the first one, called weak
upper bound, the upper bound is absorbing, i.e.,
when the upper bound is reached, the extra energy is
not stored; in the second one, we allow for
temporary violations of the upper bound, imposing
limits on the number or on the amount of violations.
We prove that when considering weak upper
bound, reachability objectives require memory, but
can still be solved in polynomial-time for
one-player arenas; we prove that they are in NP in
the two-player setting. Allowing for bounded
violations makes the problem PSPACE-complete for
one-player arenas and EXPTIME-complete for two
players. We then address the problem of existence of
bounds for a given arena. We show that with
reachability objectives, existence can be a simpler
problem than the game itself, and conversely that
with infinite games, existence can be harder.

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.

A chronicle is a temporal model introduced by
Dousson et al. for situation recognition.
In short, a chronicle consists of a set of events
and a set of real-valued temporal constraints on the
delays between pairs of events. This work
investigates the relationship between chronicles and
classical temporal model formalisms, namely
TPTL and MTL. More specifically,
we answer the following question: is it possible to
find an equivalent formula in such formalisms for
any chronicle? This question arises from the
observation that a single chronicle captures complex
temporal behaviours that do not order the events in
time.
In this article, we introduce the subclass
of linear chronicles, which defines a temporal order
of occurrence of the event to be recognized in a
temporal sequence. Our first result is that any
chronicle can be expressed as a disjunction of
linear chronicles. Our second result is that any
linear chronicle has an equivalent TPTL
formula. Using existing expressiveness results
between TPTL and MTL, we show that
some chronicles have no equivalent in MTL.
This confirms that the model of chronicle has
interesting properties for situation recognition.

Network congestion games are a convenient model for
reasoning about routing problems in a network:
agents have to move from a source to a target vertex
while avoiding congestion, measured as a cost
depending on the number of players using the same
link. Network congestion games have been extensively
studied over the last 40 years, while their
extension with timing constraints were considered
more recently.
Most of the results on network
congestion games consider blind strategies: they are
static, and do not adapt to the strategies selected
by the other players. We extend the recent results
of [Bertrand et al., Dynamic network
congestion games. FSTTCS'20] to timed network
congestion games, in which the availability of the
edges depend on (discrete) time. We prove that
computing Nash equilibria satisfying some constraint
on the total cost (and in particular, computing the
best and worst Nash equilibria), and computing the
social optimum, can be achieved in exponential
space. The social optimum can be computed in
polynomial space if all players have the same source
and target.

We consider the problem of repairing inconsistent

consistency notions: non-vacuity, which means that
each requirement can be realized without violating
other ones, and rt-consistency, which means that
inevitable violations are detected immediately.
We provide an iterative algorithm, based on solving
SMT queries, to replace designated parameters of
real-time requirements with new Boolean expressions

requirements becomes consistent.

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.

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.

Parametric timed automata (PTA) are a powerful
formalism to model and reason about concurrent
systems with some unknown timing delays. In this
paper, we address the (untimed) language- and
trace-preservation problems: given a reference
parameter valuation, does there exist another
parameter valuation with the same untimed language,
or with the same set of traces? We show that these
problems are undecidable both for general PTA and
for the restricted class of L/U-PTA, even for
integer-valued parameters, or over bounded time.
On the other hand, we exhibit decidable subclasses:
1-clock PTA, and 1-parameter deterministic L-PTA and
U-PTA. We also consider robust versions of these
problems, where we additionally require that the
language be preserved for all valuations between the
reference valuation and the new valuation.

Strategy Logic (SL) is a very expressive
temporal logic for specifying and verifying
properties of multi-agent systems: in SL,
one can quantify over strategies, assign them to
agents, and express LTL properties of the
resulting plays. Such a powerful framework has two
drawbacks: first, model checking SL has
non-elementary complexity; second, the exact
semantics of SL is rather intricate, and
may not correspond to what is expected. In this
paper, we focus on strategy dependences
in SL, by tracking how
existentially-quantified strategies in a formula may
(or may not) depend on other strategies selected in
the formula, revisiting the approach of [Mogavero
et al., Reasoning about strategies: On the
model-checking problem, 2014]. We explain why
elementary dependences, as defined by
Mogavero et al., do not exactly capture the
intended concept of behavioral strategies.
We address this discrepancy by introducing
timeline dependences, and exhibit a large
fragment of SL for which model checking can
be performed in 2EXPTIME under this new
semantics.

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.

Timed automata are a convenient mathematical model
for modelling and reasoning about real-time systems.
While they provide a powerful way of representing
timing aspects of such systems, timed automata
assume arbitrary precision and zero-delay actions;
in particular, a state might be declared reachable
in a timed automaton, but impossible to reach in the
physical system it models.
In this paper, we
consider permissive strategies as a way to overcome
this problem: such strategies propose intervals of
delays instead of single delays, and aim at reaching
a target state whichever delay actually takes place.
We develop an algorithm for computing the optimal
permissiveness (and an associated
maximally-permissive strategy) in acyclic timed
automata and games.

Active learning of timed languages is concerned with
the inference of timed automata by observing some of
the timed words in their languages. The learner can
query for the membership of words in the language,
or propose a candidate model and ask if it is
equivalent to the target. The major difficulty of
this framework is the inference of clock resets,
which are central to the dynamics of timed automata
but not directly observable.
Interesting first
steps have already been made by restricting to the
subclass of event-recording automata, where clock
resets are tied to observations. In order to advance
towards learning of general timed automata, we
generalize this method to a new class, called
reset-free event-recording automata, where some
transitions may reset no clocks.
Central to our
contribution is the notion of invalidity, and the
algorithm and data structures to deal with it,
allowing on-the-fly detection and pruning of reset
hypotheses that contradict observations. This notion
is a key to any efficient active-learning procedure
for generic timed automata.

Requirements engineering is a key phase in the
development process. Ensuring that requirements are
consistent is essential so that they do not conflict
and admit implementations. We consider the formal
verification of rt-consistency, which imposes that
the inevitability of definitive errors of a
requirement should be anticipated, and that of
partial consistency, which was recently introduced
as a more effective check. We generalize and
formalize both notions for discrete-time timed
automata, develop three incremental algorithms, and
present experimental results.

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.

We study games with reachability objectives under
energy constraints. We first prove that under strict
energy constraints (either only lower-bound
constraint or interval constraint), those games are
LOGSPACE-equivalent to energy games with
the same energy constraints but without reachability
objective (i.e., for infinite runs). We then
consider two kinds of relaxations of the upper-bound
constraints (while keeping the lower-bound
constraint strict): in the first one, called
weak upper bound, the upper bound is
absorbing, in the sense that it allows
receiving more energy when the upper bound is
already reached, but the extra energy will not be
stored; in the second one, we allow for
temporary violations of the upper bound,
imposing limits on the number or on the amount of
violations.
We prove that when considering weak
upper bound, reachability objectives require memory,
but can still be solved in polynomial-time for
one-player arenas; we prove that they are in
coNP in the two-player setting. Allowing
for bounded violations makes the problem
PSPACE-complete for one-player arenas and
EXPTIME-complete for two players.

We present abstraction-refinement algorithms for
model checking safety properties of timed automata.
The abstraction domain we consider abstracts away
zones by restricting the set of clock constraints
that can be used to define them, while the
refinement procedure computes the set of constraints
that must be taken into consideration in the
abstraction so as to exclude a given spurious
counterexample. We implement this idea in two ways:
an enumerative algorithm where a lazy abstraction
approach is adopted, meaning that possibly different
abstract domains are assigned to each exploration
node; and a symbolic algorithm where the abstract
transition system is encoded with Boolean formulas.

This article focuses on the existence and synthesis
of strategies in double-weighted Markov decision
processes, which satisfy both a probability
constraint over a weighted reachability condition,
and a quantitative constraint on the expected value
of a random variable defined using another
reachability condition. This work generalizes a
scheduling problem for energy consumption (typically
the problem of charging electric vehicles). We study
the set of values of a parameter (a threshold) for
which the problem has a solution, and show how a
partial characterization of this set can be obtained
via two sequences of optimization problems. We also
discuss the completeness and feasibility of the
resulting approach.

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 present a correct-by-design method of
state-dependent control synthesis for sampled
switching systems. Given a target region R of
the state space, our method builds a capture
set S and a control that steers any element
of S into R. The method works by iterated
backward reachability from R. It is also used to
synthesize a recurrence control that makes any state
of R return to R infinitely often.
We explain how the synthesis method can be performed
in a compositional manner, and apply it to the
synthesis of a compositional control for a concrete
floor-heating system with 11 rooms and up to
211=2048 switching modes.

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.

abstract = {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.},

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.

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 (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].

Strategy Logic (SL) is a very expressive
temporal logic for specifying and verifying
properties of multi-agent systems: in SL,
one can quantify over strategies, assign them to
agents, and express LTL properties of the
resulting plays. Such a powerful framework has two
drawbacks: first, model checking SL has
non-elementary complexity; second, the exact
semantics of SL is rather intricate, and
may not correspond to what is expected. In this
paper, we focus on strategy dependences
in SL, by tracking how
existentially-quantified strategies in a formula may
(or may not) depend on other strategies selected in
the formula, revisiting the approach of [Mogavero
et al., Reasoning about strategies: On the
model-checking problem, 2014]. We explain why
elementary dependences, as defined by
Mogavero et al., do not exactly capture the
intended concept of behavioral strategies.
We address this discrepancy by introducing
timeline dependences, and exhibit a large
fragment of SL for which model checking can
be performed in 2EXPTIME under this new
semantics.

Partial observability and controllability are two
well-known issues in test-case synthesis for
interactive systems. We address the problem of
partial control in the synthesis of test cases from
timed-automata specifications. Building on the tioco
timed testing framework, we extend a previous game
interpretation of the test-synthesis problem from
the untimed to the timed setting. This extension
requires a deep reworking of the models, game
interpretation and test-synthesis algorithms.
We exhibit strategies of a game that tries to
minimize both control losses and distance to the
satisfaction of a test purpose, and prove they are
winning under some fairness assumptions. This
entails that when turning those strategies into test
cases, we get properties such as soundness and
exhaustiveness of the test synthesis method.

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).

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 (control
funnels), that models behaviors of systems as timed
automata. The main advantage of this method is that
it allows for the automated verification and
reactive controller synthesis without discretizing
the evolution of the state of the system. Efficient
and analytic constructions are possible in the case
of linear dynamics whereas bounding funnels with
conjectured properties based on numerical
simulations can be used for general nonlinear
dynamics. We demonstrate the potential of our
approach with three examples.

We investigate a model for representing large
multiplayer games, which satisfy strong symmetry
properties. This model is made of multiple copies of
an arena; each player plays in his own arena, and
can partially observe what the other players do.
Therefore, this game has partial information and
symmetry constraints, which make the computation of
Nash equilibria difficult. We show several
undecidability results, and for bounded-memory
strategies, we precisely characterize the complexity
of computing pure Nash equilibria (for qualitative
objectives) in this game model.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Energy consumption problems (e.g., electric vehicles
charging) are very related to communication
problems. The "water-filling" algorithm can be used,
but it is not robust w.r.t. the noise of the
"non-flexible", i.e. not-controllable, energy
consumption forecasting. We propose a robust
algorithm using the probabilistic model-checker
PRISM, to exploit the idea of discretizing the
consumption action (as for a modulation to small
constellation) and the dynamic structure of the
problem in a Markov-decision-process model.

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.

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 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.

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.

QCTL extends the temporal logic CTL with
quantification over atomic propositions. While the
algorithmic questions for QCTL and its fragments
with limited quantification depth are
well-understood (e.g. satisfiability of
QCTLk, with at most k
nested blocks of quantifiers, is
k+1-EXPTIME-complete), very few results are
known about the expressiveness of this logic.
We address such expressiveness questions in this
paper. We first consider the distinguishing
power of these logics (i.e., their ability to
separate models), their relationship with
behavioural equivalences, and their ability to
capture the behaviours of finite Kripke structures
with so-called characteristic formulas. We then
consider their expressive power (i.e., their
ability to express a property), showing that in
terms of expressiveness the hierarchy
QCTLk collapses at level 2
(in other terms, any QCTL formula can be expressed
using at most two nested blocks of quantifiers).

Switched systems are a convenient formalism for
modeling physical processes interacting with a
digital controller. Unfortunately, the formalism
does not capture the distributed nature encountered
e.g. in cyber-physical systems, which are organized
as networks of elements interacting with each other
and with local controllers. Most current methods for
control synthesis can only produce a centralized
controller, which is assumed to have complete
knowledge of all the component states and can
interact with all of them. In this paper,
we consider a controller synthesis method based on
state space decomposition, and propose a game-based
approach in order to extend it within a distributed
framework.

We present a correct-by-design method of
state-dependent control synthesis for linear
discrete-time switching systems. Given an objective
region R of the state space, the method builds a
capture set S and a control which steers any
element of S into R. The method works by
iterated backward reachability from R. More
precisely, S is given as a parametric extension
of R, and the maximum value of the parameter is
solved by linear programming. The method can also be
used to synthesize a stability control which
maintains indefinitely within R all the states
starting at R. We explain how the synthesis
method can be performed in a distributed manner. The
method has been implemented and successfully applied
to the synthesis of a distributed control of a
concrete floor heating system with 11 rooms and
211 = 2048 switching modes.

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.

Reachability checking is one of the most basic
problems in verification. By solving this problem in
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
interested in synthesizing "robust" strategies
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 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. 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 extension of the alternating-time
temporal logic (ATL) with strategy contexts:
contrary to the original semantics, in this
semantics the strategy quantifiers do not reset the
previously selected strategies.
We show that our
extension ATLsc is very expressive, but that its
decision problems are quite hard: model checking is
k-EXPTIME-complete when the formula has k
nested strategy quantifiers; satisfiability is
undecidable, but we prove that it is decidable when
restricting to turn-based games. Our algorithms are
obtained through a very convenient translation to
QCTL (the computation-tree logic CTL extended with
atomic quantification), which we show also applies
to Strategy Logic, as well as when strategy
quantification ranges over memoryless strategies.

Parametric timed automata (PTA) are a powerful
formalism to model and reason about concurrent
systems with some unknown timing delays. In this
paper, we address the (untimed) language- and
trace-preservation problems: given a reference
parameter valuation, does there exist another
parameter valuation with the same untimed language
(or trace)? We show that these problems are
undecidable both for general PTA, and even for the
restricted class of L/U-PTA. On the other hand, we
exhibit decidable subclasses: 1-clock PTA, and
1-parameter deterministic L-PTA and U-PTA.

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.

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
of the counter. We prove two results: we first show
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.

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.

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.

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.},
}
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.

Alternating-time temporal logic with strategy
contexts (ATLsc) is a
powerful formalism for expressing properties of
multi-agent systems: it extends CTL with
strategy quantifiers, offering a convenient
way of expressing both collaboration and antagonism
between several agents. Incomplete observation of
the state space is a desirable feature in such a
framework, but it quickly leads to undecidable
verification problems. In this paper, we prove that
uniform incomplete observation (where all
players have the same observation) preserves
decidability of the model checking problem, even for
very expressive logics such as
ATLsc.

We investigate a number of problems related to
infinite runs of weighted timed automata (with a
single weight variable), subject to lower-bound
constraints on the accumulated weight. Closing an
open problem from an earlier paper, 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 known initial credit. We show that the
related problem of existence of an initial credit
for which there exists 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. 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.
Finally, we extend this study to
multi-weighted timed automata: the existence of a
feasible run becomes undecidable even for bounded
duration, but the existence of initial credits
remains decidable (in PSPACE).

While it was defined long ago, the extension of CTL
with quantification over atomic propositions has
never been studied extensively. Considering two
different semantics (depending whether propositional
quantification refers to the Kripke structure or to
its unwinding tree), we study its expressiveness
(showing in particular that QCTL coincides with
Monadic Second-Order Logic for both semantics) and
characterise the complexity of its model-checking
and satisfiability problems, depending on the number
of nested propositional quantifiers (showing that
the structure semantics populates the polynomial
hierarchy while the tree semantics populates the
exponential hierarchy).

non-blockingness and time-abstract simulation are

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.

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.

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.

We investigate a model for representing large
multiplayer games, which satisfy strong symmetry
properties. This model is made of multiple copies of
an arena; each player plays in his own arena, and
can partially observe what the other players do.
Therefore, this game has partial information and
symmetry constraints, which make the computation of
Nash equilibria difficult. We show several
undecidability results, and for bounded-memory
strategies, we precisely characterize the complexity
of computing pure Nash equilibria (for qualitative
objectives) in this game model.

The problem of synchronizing automata is concerned
with the existence of a word that sends all states
ofM the automaton to one and the same state. This
problem has classically been studied for complete
deterministic finite automata, with the existence
problem being NLOGSPACE-complete.
In this paper
we consider synchronizing-word problems for weighted
and timed automata. We consider the synchronization
problem in several variants and combinations of
these, including deterministic and non-deterministic
timed and weighted automata, synchronization to
unique location with possibly different clock
valuations or accumulated weights, as well as
synchronization with a safety condition forbidding
the automaton to visit states outside a safety-set
during synchronization (e.g. energy constraints).
For deterministic weighted automata, the
synchronization problem is proven PSPACE-complete
under energy constraints, and in 3-EXPSPACE under
general safety constraints. For timed automata the
synchronization problems are shown to be
PSPACE-complete in the deterministic case, and
undecidable in the non-deterministic case.

Symmetry reductions have been applied extensively
for the verification of finite-state concurrent
systems and hardware designs using model-checking of
temporal logics such as LTL, CTL and
CTL*, as well as real-time and
probabilistic-system model-checking. In this paper
we extend the technique to handle infinite-state
games on graphs with finite branching where the
objectives of the players can be very general. As
particular applications, it is shown that the
technique can be applied to reduce the state space
in parity games as well as when doing model-checking
of the temporal logic ATL*.

Formal methods (e.g. Timed Automata or Linear Hybrid
Automata) can be used to analyse a real-time system
by performing a reachability analysis on the model.
The advantage of using formal methods is that they
are more expressive than classical analytic models
used in schedulability analysis. For example, it is
possible to express state-dependent behaviour,
arbitrary activation patterns, etc.
In this
paper we use the formalism of Linear Hybrid Automata
to encode a hierarchical scheduling system. In
particular, we model a dynamic server algorithm and
the tasks contained within, abstracting away the
rest of the system, thus enabling component-based
scheduling analysis. We prove the correctness of the
model and the decidability of the reachability
analysis for the case of periodic tasks. Then, we
compare the results of our model against classical
schedulability analysis techniques, showing that our
analysis performs better than analytic methods in
terms of resource utilisation. We further present
two case studies: a component with state-dependent
tasks, and a simplified model of a real avionics
system. Finally, through extensive tests with
various configurations, we demonstrate that this
approach is usable for medium size components.

Trace Abstraction Refinement for Timed Automata.
In ATVA'14,
Lecture Notes in Computer Science 8837, pages 396-410. Springer-Verlag, November 2014.
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.

Various extensions of the temporal logic ATL have
recently been introduced to express rich properties
of multi-agent systems. Among these, ATLsc extends
ATL with strategy contexts, while Strategy
Logic has first-order quantification over
strategies. There is a price to pay for the rich
expressiveness of these logics: model-checking is
non-elementary, and satisfiability is
undecidable.
We prove in this paper that
satisfiability is decidable in several special
cases. The most important one is when restricting to
turn-based games. We prove that decidability
also holds for concurrent games if the number of
moves available to the agents is bounded. Finally,
we prove that restricting strategy quantification to
memoryless strategies brings back undecidability.

We consider the fundamental problem of Büchi
acceptance in timed automata in a robust setting.
The problem is formalised in terms of controller
synthesis: timed automata are equipped with a
parametrised game-based semantics that models the
possible perturbations of the decisions taken by the
controller. We characterise timed automata that are
robustly controllable for some parameter, with a
simple graph theoretic condition, by showing the
equivalence with the existence of an aperiodic lasso
that satisfies the winning condition (aperiodicity
was defined and used earlier in different contexts
to characterise convergence phenomena in timed
automata). We then show decidability and
PSPACE-completeness of our problem.

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.
