Symbolic Automata for Static Specification Mining

By Hila Peleg, Sharon Shoham, Eran Yahav and Hongseok Yang


Abstract. We present a formal framework for static specification mining. The main idea is to represent partial temporal specifications as symbolic automata – automata where transitions may be labeled by variables, and a variable can be substituted by a letter, a word, or a regular language. Using symbolic automata, we construct an abstract domain for static specification mining, capturing both the partialness of a specification and the precision of a specification. We show interesting relationships between lattice operations of this domain and common operators for manipulating partial temporal specifications, such as building a more informative specification by consolidating two partial specifications.
