The increased complexity of embedded systems coupled with quickdesign cycles to accommodate faster time-to-market requiresincreased system design productivity that involves both model-baseddesign and tool-supported methodologies.
Formal methods are mathematically-based techniques and provide aclean framework in which to express requirements and models of thesystems, taking into account discrete, stochastic and continuous(timed or hybrid) parameters with increasingly efficient tools.
This book deals with these formal methods applied tocommunicating embedded systems by presenting the related industrialchallenges and the issues of modeling, model-checking, diagnosisand control synthesis, and by describing the main associatedautomated tools.
