Paper: A Kleene theorem for timed automata (at LICS 1997)

Authors: Eugene Asarin Paul Caspi Oded Maler


In this paper we define timed regular expressions, and extension of regular expressions for specifying sets of dense-time discrete-valued signals. We show that this formalism is equivalent in expressive power to the timed automata of Alur and Dill by providing a translation procedure from expressions to automata and vice versa. the result is extended to /spl omega/-regular expressions (Buchi's theorem).
