*
DURATION CALCULUS Prof. Michael R. Hansen (Copenhagen, Tech. Univ. of Denmark)
Abstract:
Duration Calculus was introduced as an extension of Interval Temporal Logic to specify properties of real-time systems and to reason about such specifications. Since its introduction it has been applied to many case studies and it has been extended in several directions.
The main concepts of Duration Calculus will be presented in the course as well as its application in cases studies of real-time and hybrid systems.
