                ABSTRACTS OF THE TALKS

Moshe Y. Vardi (Rice University, USA)

The Rise and Fall of Linear Temporal Logic

One of the surprising developments in the area of program verification in the late part of the 20th
Century is the emergence of Linear Temporal Logic (LTL), a logic that emerged in philisophical 
studies of free will, as the cannonical language for describing temporal behavior of computer 
systems. LTL, however, is not expressive enough for industrial applications. 
The first decade of the 21 Century saw the emergence of industrial temporal logics such as ForSpec,
PSL, and SVA. These logics, however, are not clean enough to serve as objects of theoretical study.
This talk will describe the rise and fall of LTL, and will propose a new cannonical temporal logic:
Linear Dynamic Logic (LDL).

Habilitation Thesis

Games and Automata: From Boolean to Quantitative Verification

Abstract. This talk presents a selection of results in the traditional verification of finite-state
games and automata (new efficient algorithms for decision problems in games and automata theory), 
then presents extensions of the traditional models to quantitative games and automata, and new 
results in complexity, algorithmics, and expressive power of the new models.
