Abstract:

We introduce a generic family of behavioral relations for which the problem of comparing an arbitrary transition system to some finite-state specification can be reduced to a model checking problem against simple modal formulae. As an application, we derive decidability of several regular equivalence problems for well-known families of infinite-state systems.
