A theory of normed simulations
David Griffioen, Frits Vaandrager
Pages: 577-610
DOI: 10.1145/1024922.1024923

In existing simulation proof techniques, a single step in a lower-level specification may be simulated by an extended execution fragment in a higher-level one. As a result, it is cumbersome to mechanize these techniques using general-purpose...

Abstract versus concrete computation on metric partial algebras
J. V. Tucker, J. I. Zucker
Pages: 611-668
DOI: 10.1145/1024922.1024924

In the theory of computation on topological algebras there is a considerable gap between so-called abstract and concrete models of computation. In concrete models, unlike abstract models, the computations depend on the representation of the...

NEXP TIME-complete description logics with concrete domains
Carsten Lutz
Pages: 669-705
DOI: 10.1145/1024922.1024925

Concrete domains are an extension of Description Logics (DLs) that allow one to integrate reasoning about conceptual knowledge with reasoning about "concrete qualities" of real-world entities such as their sizes, weights, and durations. In this...

Proving correctness of timed concurrent constraint programs
Frank S. De Boer, Maurizio Gabbrielli, Maria Chiara Meo
Pages: 706-731
DOI: 10.1145/1024922.1024926

A temporal logic is presented for reasoning about the correctness of timed concurrent constraint programs. The logic is based on modalities which allow one to specify what a process produces as a reaction to what its environment inputs. These...

Interval constraint solving for camera control and motion planning
Frédéric Benhamou, Frédéric Goualard, Éric Languénou, , Marc Christie
Pages: 732-767
DOI: 10.1145/1024922.1024927

Many problems in robust control and motion planning can be reduced to either finding a sound approximation of the solution space determined by a set of nonlinear inequalities, or to the "guaranteed tuning problem" as defined by Jaulin and Walter,...
