|Title: ||Defining Liveness|
|Authors: ||Alpern, Bowen|
Schneider, Fred B.
|Keywords: ||computer science|
|Issue Date: ||Oct-1985|
|Publisher: ||Cornell University|
|Abstract: ||A formal definition for liveness properties is proposed. It is argued that this definition captures the intuition that liveness properties stipulate that "something good" eventually happens during execution. A topological characterization of safety and liveness is given. Every property is shown to be the intersection of a safety property and a liveness property.|
