About This Course

The integration of ICT (information and communications technology) in different applications is rapidly increasing in e.g. Embedded and Cyber physical systems, Communication protocols and Transportation systems. Hence, their reliability and dependability increasingly depends on software. Defects can be fatal and extremely costly (with regards to mass-production of products and safety-critical systems).

Why Take This Course?

This is a free online course. Applicants can get a verified certificate.

Learning Outcomes

The main focus of this course is on quantitative model checking for Markov chains, for which we will discuss efficient computational algorithms. The learning objectives of this course are as follows:

  • Express dependability properties for different kinds of transition systems .
  • Compute the evolution over time for Markov chains.
  • Check whether single states satisfy a certain formula and compute the satisfaction set for properties.

Requirements

This course is meant for Master students in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Embedded Systems as a specialisation in the area of formal models and methods. Note that as a consequence, quiz questions are more like exam questions where you have to construct the answer based on the principles that are taught in the web lectures, rather than to recall the literal text of the teacher.
