PhD Studentship: Automated Verification and Synthesis through Coalgebras

 

Agents, Interactions & Complexity

 

Location:  Highfield Campus

Closing Date:  Sunday 30 June 2019

Reference:  1129019FP


Supervisor: Dr Corina Cirstea                        


Project description

 

As part of this project, you will work on developing new foundations for quantitative verification, grounded in the theory of coalgebras.

 

Coalgebras are mathematical structures ideally suited for modelling state-based, dynamical systems. They come equipped with modal logics that support reasoning about the temporal behaviour of systems, both qualitatively and quantitatively.

 

During your PhD, you will help build a synergy between the fields of coalgebra and automated verification. Your project will contribute to the development of a new research area of coalgebraic model checking, aimed at extending the applicability of automated verification and synthesis to complex systems, whose modelling requires richer, more flexible models than currently supported. Models incorporating resource information are a prime example, and application areas include energy-aware systems, with a need to minimise energy usage while achieving desired behaviour; and autonomous systems, with a need for on-the-fly synthesis of resource-optimal plans.

 

Please contact Dr Corina Cirstea (cc2@ecs.soton.ac.uk) for further details.
