Name

mcl, MCL - Model Checking Language (versions 3 and 4)

Description

MCL (Model Checking Language) is an action-based, branching-time temporal logic suitable for expressing properties of concurrent systems. MCL is interpreted on Labelled Transition Systems (LTSs).

Two versions of MCL are currently available:
