Title: Recognizing Safety and Liveness
Authors: Alpern, Bowen
Schneider, Fred B.
Keywords: computer science
technical report
Issue Date: Jan-1986
Publisher: Cornell University
Abstract: Formal characterizations for safety properties and liveness properties are given in terms of the structure of the Buchi automaton that specifies the property. The characterizations permit a property to be decomposed into a safety property and a liveness property whose conjunction is the original. The characterizations also give insight into techniques required to prove a large class of safety and liveness properties.
