The wish to automatically construct correct systems from specifications has been around for about half a century. Church was the first one to describe this idea in 1962. Our work is closely related to this idea. We will consider systems which react to the environment denoted as open modules and our specification language is linear temporal logic (LTL). Synthesis is the problem of automatically constructing correct open modules from an LTL specification. In 1992, it was shown to be 2EXP complete. This result discouraged many researchers to continue working on the problem since it seemed to be intractable. Only in recent years the topic was picked up again and new results leaded to new ideas. The core idea of this work is a new relation on LTL formulas. An LTL formula open implies another formula, if every open module realizing the first formula also realizes the second formula. Hence open implication can be used to improve specifications or to synthesize smaller solutions
