DESCRIPTION:Modal logic provides an effective lang
uage for expressing properties of state-based sys
tems. When equipped with operators that can test
for infinite behaviour like looping and reachabil
ity, the logic becomes a powerful tool for specify
ing correctness of nonterminating, reactive proce
sses such as communication protocols and control
systems. An elegant example of such a logic is th
e modal mu-calculus which extends basic modal log
ic by two quantifiers for defining inductive and
co-inductive operators. As well as being highly ex
pressive, this logic enjoys good computational pr
operties (decidability, finite model property, …)
that distinguish it as a central logic in comput
er science. In this talk I will introduce the moda
l mu-calculus, present some key properties and di
scuss recent results regarding its proof theory.
