Seminario Filippo Bonchi su “Coinduction Up-To (and some applications to equivalence checking)”

Mercoledì 28 maggio alle 9:30 in Sala Riunioni del DiMI, il dott. Filippo Bonchi, Chargé de Recherche CNRS presso l’Ecole Normale Supérieure di Lione, terrà il seguente seminario riguardante recenti suoi risultati:

Coinduction Up-To (and some applications to equivalence checking)

Abstract: Coinduction proof principles, and their enhancements by means of up-to techniques, are widely used for reasoning about automata and processes. In this talk, I will consider bisimulation up-to congruence as a technique for proving language equivalence of non-deterministic finite automata. This technique can be effectively implemented in an algorithm that exponentially improves the state of the art.

Tutti gli interessati sono invitati a partecipare.

LFMTP 2014: 9th International Workshop on Logical Frameworks and Meta-languages: Theory and Practice

LFMTP is a long-standing forum for presenting state-of-the-art techniques and discuss progress in the area of logical frameworks and meta-languages. This workshop brings together designers, implementers, and practitioners to discuss various aspects impinging on the structure and utility of logical frameworks, including the treatment of variable binding, inductive and co-inductive reasoning techniques and the expressivity and lucidity of the reasoning process.

This year, LFMTP is affiliated with CSL-LICS 2014 and IJCAR 2014 and held as part of the Federated Logic Conference (FLoC) and the Vienna Summer of Logic (VSL).
