Axiom System Induced by CTL Logic

Lookup NU author(s): Professor Maciej KoutnyORCiD



We discuss some of the problems conerning bisimulation relations over behaviour expressions representing non-sequential systems. The kind of bisimulation we investigate is derived from the notion of bisimulation relation betwenn two Kripke structures, which provides a full characterisation of semantical equivalence of such structures w.r.t. the CTL* branching time temporal logic without the next-time operator. This new bisimulation on behaviour expressions, called CTL*-bisimulation, induces a congruence on recursion-free behaviour expressions, and in this paper we derive a sound and complete axiom system for this congruence.
