An introduction to advanced methodologies for the specification
and design of hardware and software systems.
Such systems include heterogeneous and concurrent components defined at different levels of abstraction, to be implemented in hardware and software;
they must satisfy functional and real time constraints, and may interact with physical systems (cyperphysical systems).
This class discusses the most important specification languages for hardware, software and networked systems.
Introduction to system theory.
Discrete systems and state machines (finite and infinite state machines).
Deterministic, observable and nondeterministic finite state machines.
Composition of finite state machines.
Minimization, determinization, equivalence and containment of finite state
Simulation and bisimulation relations for finite state machines.
Sinthesis of finite state controllers for safety and liveness properties.
Supervisory control for regular automata and languages.
Languages for hardware specification.
Written exam (see the information in the module of Theory of Systems).
