QMC lecture: Mondays 8-10 am

Dear students,

due to the result of Doodle, it seems that the only time slot which is possible for almost all of you is Monday 8-10 am. Therefore, we follow the current schedule for the lectures.

Thanks,

Quantitative Model Checking

Ernst Moritz Hahn (instructor)

Vahid Hashemi (assistant)

Audience

This advanced course addresses Bachelor and Master students in Computer Science, Bioinformatics, CuK or Computerlinguistics. Background in probability theory and the module Verification are of advantage but not mandatory.

Objectives

Quantitative model checking is concerned with quantities (mostly probabilities) within systems exhibiting random behaviour. Such systems include networked, embedded, or biological systems. Their underlying semantics are usually discrete-time and/or continuous-time Markov chains, possibly extended with nondeterminism. On the respective models, quantitative properties of interest can be verified. The properties can be specified, e.g., by PCTL or LTL for discrete-time models, and CSL for continuous-time models. This course aims to cover both the model construction and the verification techniques for these systems.

Credits: 6 ECTS points (2 hours of lecture, 2 hours of tutorials, and some exercises every week)

When and where?

Lectures: first lecture on Wednesday 14 - 16, April 19, 2017 in the seminar room U12 in E1 1,
afterwards every Monday 8 - 10 in the seminar room 528 in E1 3 (note the room change), starting on April 24, 2017,
Tutorials: every Wednesday 14 - 16 in the seminar room 328 in E1 3 (note the room change), starting on April 26, 2017

Grading

The dates for the exams will be announced.

Having at least 50% points for both theoretical and practical exercises is required for admission to the final exam. Your current point status will be made available in dCMS.
