Temporal Logic has been developed during the last 25 years to a basic and powerful formal setting for the specification and verification of state based systems. This book, based on manifold university lectures given by the authors, gives a comprehensive description of this field. It presents concisely and uniformly the up to date material of the theory and applications of linear and branching time Temporal Logic, Temporal Logic of Actions, automata theoretical connections, model checking and others. All theoretical details as well as the numerous application examples are elaborated carefully and with all formal rigor, so intended to serve as a basic source and reference for active lectures and researchers.
From the reviews:
"In the book under review, significant new materials and approaches are included, in particular, branching time logics, expressiveness issues of temporal logic, aspects related to Lamport's Temporal Logic of Actions (TLA), and model checking methods. ... The book is well written and almost self-contained. It can be useful as an introduction and reference for scientists and practicing software engineers who want to familiarize themselves with the field. The book can be used for courses at the advanced undergraduate and the graduate levels." (Regimantas Pliuskevicius, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2009 m)
"The book consists of 11 chapters, followed by a list of temporal logic laws and axiomatic systems, a bibliography with 161 references, and a subject index. Each chapter ends with brief bibliographic notes. ... This is a rich in content book, with many important topics and examples treated in much technical depth. ... a rich, useful, and valuable text, that can be recommended as a research reference, graduate course textbook, or a source for self-study on temporal logic in computer science."
