Games and Probabilistic Models in Formal Verification


Formal methods are widely used in development and analysis of complex systems such as aircraft flight control systems, controllers of industrial processes, biological processes etc. These systems usually exhibit features such as randomness, interaction and parallelism. Probabilistic and game theoretic models are especially well suited for capturing these features and therefore there is a need to develop such models and methods for their analysis. The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers with interest in probabilistic and game theoretic methods in formal verification.
