Real-Time Verification Techniques for Untimed Systems

Xiaoqun Du, C. R. Ramakrishnan, Scott A. Smolka


We show that verification techniques for timed automata based on the Alur and Dill region-graph construction can be applied to much more general kinds of systems, including asynchronous untimed systems over unbounded integer variables. We follow this approach in proving that the problem of verifying the n-process Bakery algorithm is decidable, for any fixed n. We believe this is the first decidability proof for this problem to appear in the literature.
