=ltlcross= is a tool for cross-comparing the output of LTL-to-Büchi
translators.  It is actually a Spot-based clone of [[http://www.tcs.hut.fi/Software/lbtt/][LBTT]], the
/LTL-to-Büchi Translator Testbench/, that essentially performs the
same sanity checks.

11
The main differences are:
12
  - support for PSL formulas in addition to LTL
13
14
15
16
17
  - more statistics, especially:
    - the number of logical transitions represented by each physical edge,
    - the number of deterministic states and automata
    - the number of SCCs with their various strengths (nonaccepting, terminal, weak, strong)
    - the number of terminal, weak, and strong automata
18
  - statistics output in a format that can be more easily be post-processed,
19
  - more precise time measurement (LBTT was only precise to
20
21
    1/100 of a second, reporting most times as "0.00s"),
  - support for deterministic Rabin or Streett automata written in
22
    [[http://www.ltl2dstar.de/docs/ltl2dstar.html][=ltl2dstar='s format]],
23
24
  - additional intersection checks with the complement of any
    deterministic automaton produced by a translator.
25
26

Although =ltlcross= performs the same sanity checks as LBTT, it does
27
28
29
not implement any of the interactive features of LBTT.  In our almost
10-year usage of LBTT, we never had to use its interactive features to
understand bugs in our translation.  Therefore =ltlcross= will report
30
31
problems, maybe with a conterexample, but you will be on your own to
investigate and fix them.
32
33
34
35
36

The core of =ltlcross= is a loop that does the following steps:
  - Input a formula
  - Translate the formula and its negation using each configured translator.
    If there are 3 translators, the positive and negative translations
37
38
39
    will be denoted =P0=, =N0=, =P1=, =N1=, =P2=, =N2=.  Optionally
    build complemented automata denoted =Comp(P0)=, =Comp(N0)=, etc.
  - Perform sanity checks between all these automata to detect any problem.
40
  - Build the products of these automata with a random state-space (the same
41
42
    state-space for all translations).  (If the =--products=N= option is given,
    =N= products are performed instead.)

* Formula selection

Formulas to translate should be specified using the [[file:ioltl.org][common input options]].
Standard input is read if no =-f= or =-F= option is given.

* Configuring translators

Each translator should be specified as a string that use some of the
following character sequences:

#+BEGIN_SRC sh :results verbatim :exports results
ltlcross --help | sed -n '/character sequences:/,/^$/p' | sed '1d;$d'
#+END_SRC
#+RESULTS:
:   %f,%s,%l,%w                the formula as a (quoted) string in Spot, Spin,
:                              LBT, or Wring's syntax
:   %F,%S,%L,%W                the formula as a file in Spot, Spin, LBT, or
:                              Wring's syntax
63
64
:   %O,%D                      the automaton is output as either (%O) HOA/never
:                              claim/LBTT, or (%D) in LTL2DSTAR's format
65
66
67
68
69

For instance here is how we could cross-compare the never claims
output by =spin= and =ltl2tgba= for the formulas =GFa= and =X(a U b)=.

#+BEGIN_SRC sh :results verbatim :exports code
70
ltlcross -f 'GFa' -f 'X(a U b)' 'ltl2tgba -s %s >%O' 'spin -f %s >%O'
71
72
73
74
#+END_SRC
#+RESULTS:

When =ltlcross= executes these commands, =%s= will be replaced
75
by the formula in Spin's syntax, and =%O= will be replaced by a
76
77
78
79
temporary file into which the output of the translator is redirected
before it is read back by =ltlcross=.

#+BEGIN_SRC sh :results verbatim :exports results
80
ltlcross -f 'GFa' -f 'X(a U b)' 'ltl2tgba -s %s >%O' 'spin -f %s >%O' 2>&1

101
=ltlcross= can only read four kinds of output:
102
103
104
  - Never claims (only if they are restricted to representing an
    automaton using =if=, =goto=, and =skip= statements) such as those
    output by [[http://spinroot.com/][=spin=]], [[http://www.lsv.ens-cachan.fr/~gastin/ltl2ba/][=ltl2ba=]], [[http://sourceforge.net/projects/ltl3ba/][=ltl3ba=]], or =ltl2tgba --spin=.  These
105
    should be indicated using =%O=.  The newer syntax introduced by
106
    Spin 6.24, using =do= instead of =if=, is also supported.
107
108
109
  - [[http://www.tcs.hut.fi/Software/lbtt/doc/html/Format-for-automata.html][LBTT's format]], which supports generalized Büchi automata with
    either state-based acceptance or transition-based acceptance.
    This output is used for instance by [[http://www.tcs.hut.fi/Software/maria/tools/lbt/][=lbt=]], [[http://web.archive.org/web/20080607170403/http://www.science.unitn.it/~stonetta/modella.html][=modella=]], or =ltl2tgba
110
111
112
113
    --lbtt=.  These should also be indicated using =%O=.
  - Non-alaternating automata in [[file:http://adl.github.io/hoaf/][the HOA format]] with an acceptance
    condition that is is generalized-Büchi or inferior.  These
    should also be indicated using =%O=.
114
115
116
117
118
119
120
121
122
123
  - [[http://www.ltl2dstar.de/docs/ltl2dstar.html][=ltl2dsar='s format]], which support deterministic Rabin or Streett
    automata.  After =ltlcross= reads such input, it immediately
    convert it into a Büchi automaton.  Rabin automata are converted
    to (degeneralized) Büchi automata and the conversion will preserve
    the determinism anytime a deterministic Büchi automaton exists for
    that property (this determinism is good for the complemented
    intersection check discussed below).  Streett automata are
    converted to non-deterministic TGBA, where generalized acceptance
    conditions are used to reduce the size of the automaton you would
    get by the classical conversion from Streett to Büchi.
124
    This kind of output (Rabin or Streett) should be indicated with =%D=.
125
126
127
128
129

Of course all configured tools need not use the same =%= sequences.
The following list shows some typical configurations for some existing
tools:

130
131
132
133
134
135
  - '=spin -f %s >%O='
  - '=ltl2ba -f %s >%O='
  - '=ltl3ba -M0 -f %s >%O=' (less deterministic output, can be smaller)
  - '=ltl3ba -M1 -f %s >%O=' (more deterministic output)
  - '=modella -r12 -g -e %L %O='
  - '=/path/to/script4lbtt.py %L %O=' (script supplied by [[http://www.ti.informatik.uni-kiel.de/~fritz/][ltl2nba]] for
136
    its interface with LBTT)
137
138
139
140
141
  - '=ltl2tgba -s %s >%O=' (smaller output, Büchi automaton)
  - '=ltl2tgba -s -D %s >%O=' (more deterministic output, Büchi automaton)
  - '=ltl2tgba --lbtt %s >%O=' (smaller output, TGBA)
  - '=ltl2tgba --lbtt -D %s >%O=' (more deterministic output, TGBA)
  - '=lbt <%L >%O='
142
  - '=ltl2dstar --ltl2nba=spin:path/to/ltl2tgba@-sD %L %D='
143
    (deterministic Rabin output)
144
  - '=ltl2dstar --automata=streett --ltl2nba=spin:path/to/ltl2tgba@-sD
145
    %L %D=' (deterministic Streett output)
146
  - '=ltl2dstar --ltl2nba=spin:path/to/ltl2tgba@-sD %L - | dstar2tgba
147
    -s >%O=' (external conversion from Rabin to Büchi done by
148
    =dstar2tgba= for more reduction of the Büchi automaton than
149
150
151
152
    what =ltlcross= would provide)
  - '=java -jar Rabinizer.jar -ltl2dstar %F %D; mv %D.dst %D=' (Rabinizer
    uses the last =%D= argument as a prefix to which it always append =.dst=,
    so we have to rename =%D.dst= as =%D= so that =ltlcross= can find the file)
153
  - '=ltl3dra -f %s >%O='
154

155

To simplify the use of some of the above tools, a set of predefined
shorthands are available.  Those can be listed with the
=--list-shorthands= option.

#+BEGIN_SRC sh :results verbatim :exports both
ltlcross --list-shorthands
#+END_SRC
#+RESULTS:
#+begin_example
If a COMMANDFMT does not use any %-sequence, and starts with one of
the following words, then the string on the right is appended.

167
168
  lbt          <%L>%O
  ltl2ba       -f %s>%O
169
  ltl2dstar    %L %D
170
171
  ltl2tgba     -H %f>%O
  ltl3ba       -f %s>%O
172
  ltl3dra      -f %f>%O
173
174
  modella      %L %O
  spin         -f %s>%O
175
176
177
#+end_example

What this implies is that running =ltlcross ltl2ba ltl3ba ...= is
178
the same as running =ltlcross 'ltl2ba -f %s>%O' 'ltl3ba -f %s>%O' ...=
179
180
181

Because only the prefix of the actual command is checked, you can
still specify some options.  For instance =ltlcross 'ltl2tgba -D' ...=
182
is short for =ltlcross 'ltl2tgba -D -H %F>%O' ...=
183

184
185

* Getting statistics

Detailed statistics about the result of each translation, and the
product of that resulting automaton with the random state-space, can
be obtained using the =--csv=FILE= or =--json=FILE= option.

190
191
** CSV or JSON output (or both!)

192
The following compare =ltl2tgba=, =spin=, and =lbt= on three random
193
formulas (where =W= and =M= operators have been rewritten away because
194
they are not supported by =spin= and =lbt=).

Here the =fields= table describes the columns of the =results= table.
The =inputs= tables lists the columns that are considered as inputs
for the experiments.  The values in the columns corresponding to the
fields =formula= and =tool= contains indices relative to the =formula=
and =tool= tables.  This format is more compact when dealing with lots
of translators and formulas, because they don't have to be repeated on
each line as in the CSV version.
336
337

JSON data can be easily processed in any language.  For instance the
338
339
340
341
342
following Python3 script averages each column (except the first four)
for each tool, and presents the results in a form that can almost be
copied into a LaTeX table (the =%= in the tool names have to be taken
care of).  Note that for simplicity we assume that the first two
columns are inputs, instead of reading the =inputs= field.

The script =bench/ltl2tgba/sum.py= is a more evolved version of the
above script that generates two kinds of LaTeX tables.

When computing such statistics, you should be aware that inputs for
which a tool failed to generate an automaton (e.g. it crashed, or it
was killed if you used =ltlcross='s =--timeout= option to limit run

time) will appear as mostly empty lines in the CSV or JSON files,
since most statistics cannot be computed without an automaton...
Those lines with missing data can be omitted with the =--omit-missing=
option (this used to be the default up to Spot 1.2).

However data for bogus automata are still included: as shown below
=ltlcross= will report inconsistencies between automata as errors, but
it does not try to guess who is incorrect.

** Description of the columns

=formula= and =tool= contain the formula translated and the command
run to translate it.  In the CSV, these columns contain the actual
text.  In the JSON output, these column contains an index into the
=formula= and =tool= table declared separately.

=exit_status= and =exit_code= are used to indicate if the translator
successfully produced an automaton, or if it failed.  On successful
translation, =exit_status= is equal to "=ok=" and =exit_code= is 0.
If the translation took more time than allowed with the =--timeout=
option, =exit_status= will contain "=timeout=" and =exit_code= will be
set to -1.  Other values are used to diagnose various issues: please
check the man-page for =ltlcross= for a list of them.

=time= obviously contains the time used by the translation.  Time is
measured with some high-resolution clock when available (that's
nanosecond accuracy under Linux), but because translator commands are
executed through a shell, it also includes the time to start a shell.
(This extra cost apply identically to all translators, so it is not unfair.)


All the values that follow will be missing if =exit_status= is not
406
equal to "=ok=".  (You may instruct =ltlcross= not to output lines with
407
408
such missing data with the option =--omit-missing=.)

The columns =in_type=, =in_states=, =in_edges=, =in_transitions=,
=in_acc=, and =in_scc= are only output if one of the translator
produces Rabin or Streett automata (i.e., if =%D= is used to specify
one output filename for any translator).  In that case these columns
give the type (DRA or DSA) of the produced automaton, as well as its
size (states, edges, transitions, number of acceptance pairs, and
number of SCCs).  This input automaton is then converted by =ltlcross=
into a TGBA before being checked the result of other translators, and
all the following columns are measures of that converted automaton.
(Aside from parsing them and converting them to TGBA, Spot has no support
for Rabin automata and Streett automata.)

automaton that was translated.  =acc= counts the number of acceptance
sets.  When building (degeneralized) Büchi automata, it will always be
=1=, so its value is meaningful only when evaluating translations to
generalized Büchi automata.  =edges= counts the actual number of edges
in the graph supporting the automaton; an edge (labeled by a Boolean
formula) might actually represent several transitions (each labeled by
assignment of all atomic propositions).  For instance in an automaton
where the atomic proposition are $a$ and $b$, one edge labeled by
$a\lor b$ actually represents three transitions $a b$, $a\bar b$, and
$\bar a b$.

The following picture displays two automata for the LTL formula =a U
b=.  They both have 2 states and 3 edges, however they differ in the
number of transitions (7 versus 8), because the initial self-loop is
more constrained in the first automaton.  A smaller number of
transition is therefore an indication of a more constrained automaton.

=scc= counts the number of strongly-connected components in the automaton.  These SCCs are
also partitioned on four sets based on their strengths:
- =nonacc_scc= for non-accepting SCCs (such as states A1 and A2 in the
  previous picture)
- =terminal_scc= for SCCs that consist of a single state with an
  accepting self-loop labeled by true (such as states B1 and B2
  in the previous picture)
- =weak_scc= for non-terminal SCCs in which all cycles are accepting
- and =strong_scc= for accepting SCCs in which some cycles are not accepting.

These SCC strengths can be used to compute the strength of the
automaton as a whole:
- an automaton is terminal if it contains only non-accepting or
  terminal SCCs,
- an automaton is weak if it it contains only non-accepting,
  terminal, or weak SCCs,
- an automaton is strong if it contains at least one strong SCC.

This classification is used to fill the =terminal_aut=, =weak_aut=,
=strong_aut= columns with Boolean values.  Only one of these should
contain =1=.  We usually prefer terminal automata over weak automata,
and weak automata over strong automata, because the emptiness check
of terminal (and weak) automata is easier.

=nondetstates= counts the number of non-deterministic states in the
automaton.  =nondeterministic= is a Boolean value indicating if the
automaton is not deterministic.  For instance in the previous picture
showing two automata for =a U b=, the first automaton is deterministic
(these two fields will contain 0), while the second automaton contain
a nondeterministic state (state A2 has two possible successors for the
assignment $ab$) and is therefore not deterministic.

495
496
497
498
=ambiguous_aut= counts the number of ambiguous automaton.  An
automaton is ambiguous is there exist a word that can be accepted by
at least two different runs.

Finally, =product_states=, =product_transitions=, and =product_scc=
count the number of state, transitions and strongly-connect components
in the product that has been built between the translated automaton
and a random model.  For a given formula, the same random model is of
course used against the automata translated by all tools.  Comparing
the size of these product might give another indication of the
"conciseness" of a translated automaton.

There is of course a certain "luck factor" in the size of the product.
Maybe some translator built a very dumb automaton, with many useless
states, in which just a very tiny part is translated concisely.  By
luck, the random model generated might synchronize with this tiny part
only, and ignore the part with all the useless states.  A way to
lessen this luck factor is to increase the number of products
performed against the translated automaton.  If option =--products=N=
is used, =N= products are builds instead of one, and the fields
=product_states=, =product_transitions=, and =product_scc= contain
average values.

521
522
523
524
525
If the option =--products=+N= is used (with a =+= in front of the
number), then no average value is computed.  Instead, three columns
=product_states=, =product_transitions=, and =product_scc= are output
for each individual product (i.e., $3\times N$ columns are output).
This might be useful if you want to compute different kind of
statistic (e.g., a median instead of a mean) or if you want to build
scatter plots of all these products.

looking whether the command specification for a translator has the

* Detecting problems

If a translator exits with a non-zero status code, or fails to output
an automaton =ltlcross= can read, and error will be displayed and the
result of the translation will be discarded.

Otherwise =ltlcross= performs the following checks on all translated
formulas ($P_i$ and $N_i$ designate respectively the translation of
positive and negative formulas by the ith translator).

  - Intersection check: $P_i\otimes N_j$ must be empty for all
    pairs of $(i,j)$.

    A single failing translator might generate a lot of lines of
    the form:

    In this example, translator number =1= looks clearly faulty
606
607
608
609
610
611
    (at least the other 4 translators do not contradict each other).

    Examples of infinite words that are accepted by both automata
    always have the form of a lasso: a (possibly empty) finite prefix
    followed by a cycle that should be repeated infinitely often.
    The cycle part is denoted by =cycle{...}=.

  - Complemented intersection check.  If $P_i$ and $P_j$ are
    deterministic, we =ltlcross= builds their complements, $Comp(P_i)$
    and $Comp(P_j)$, and then ensures that $Comp(P_i)\otimes
    Comp(P_j)$ is empty.  If only one of them is deterministic,
    for instance $P_i$, we check that $P_j\otimes Comp(P_i)$ for all
    $j \ne i$; likewise if it's $N_i$ that is deterministic.

    This check is only done for deterministic automata, because
    complementation is cheap is that case.  When validating a
    translator with =ltlcross=, we highly recommend to include a
    translator with good deterministic output to augment test
624
    coverage.  Using '=ltl2tgba -lD %f >%O=' will produce
625
626
627
628
629
630
    deterministic automata for all obligation properties and many
    recurrence properties.  Using '=ltl2dstar
    --ltl2nba=spin:pathto/ltl2tgba@-sD %L %D=' is more expansive, but
    it will produce a deterministic Büchi automaton whenever one
    exists.

636
637
638
  - Cross-comparison checks: for some state-space $S$,
    all $P_i\otimes S$ are either all empty, or all non-empty.
    Similarly all $N_i\otimes S$ are either all empty, or all non-empty.

    A cross-comparison failure could be displayed as:

    : error: {P0,P2,P3,P4,P5,P6,P7,P8,P9} disagree with {P1} when evaluating the state-space

639
640
641
642
643
    If =--products=N= is used with =N= greater than one, the number of
    the state-space is also printed.  This number is of no use by
    itself, except to explain why you may get multiple disagreement
    between the same sets of automata.

644
645
646
647
648
649
650
651
652
653
654
  - Consistency check:

    For each $i$, the products $P_i\otimes S$ and $N_i\otimes S$
    actually cover all states of $S$.  Because $S$ does not have any
    deadlock, any of its infinite path must be accepted by $P_i$ or
    $N_i$ (or both).

    An error in that case is displayed as

    : error: inconsistency between P1 and N1

655
656
657
658
    If =--products=N= is used with =N= greater than one, the number of
    the state-space in which the inconsistency was detected is also
    printed.

659
660
661
The above checks are similar to those that are performed by [[http://www.tcs.hut.fi/Software/lbtt/][LBTT]],
except for the complemented intersection check, which is only done in
=ltlcross=.
662

665
666
667
668
669
670
671

If any problem was reported during the translation of one of the
formulas, =ltlcheck= will exit with an exit status of =1=.  Statistics
(if requested) are output nonetheless, and include any faulty
automaton as well.

* Miscellaneous options

** =--stop-on-error=

672
673
674
The =--stop-on-error= option will cause =ltlcross= to abort on the
first detected error.  This include failure to start some translator,
read its output, or failure to passe the sanity checks.  Timeouts are
675
676
677
678
679
680
681
682
683
684
685
allowed.

One use for this option is when =ltlcross= is used in combination with
=randltl= to check translators on an infinite stream of formulas.

For instance the following will cross-compare =ltl2tgba= against
=ltl3ba= until it finds an error, or your interrupt the command, or it
runs out of memory (the hash tables used by =randltl= and =ltlcross=
to remove duplicate formulas will keep growing).

#+BEGIN_SRC sh :export code :eval no
686
randltl -n -1 --tree-size 10..25 a b c | ltlcross --stop-on-error 'ltl2tgba --lbtt %f >%O' 'ltl3ba -f %s >%O'
687
688
#+END_SRC

697

699
700
701
702
** =--save-bogus=FILENAME=

The =--save-bogus=FILENAME= will save any formula for which an error
was detected (either some translation failed, or some problem was
detected using the resulting automata) in =FILENAME=.  Again, timeouts
are not considered to be errors, and therefore not reported in this
file.

The main use for this feature is in conjunction with =randltl='s
generation of random formulas.  For instance the following command
will run the translators on an infinite number of formulas, saving
any problematic formula in =bugs.ltl=.

#+BEGIN_SRC sh :export code :eval no
703
randltl -n -1 --tree-size 10..25 a b c | ltlcross --save-bogus=bugs.ltl 'ltl2tgba --lbtt %f >%O' 'ltl3ba -f %s >%O'
704
705
706
707
708
709
#+END_SRC

You can periodically check the contents of =bugs.ltl=, and then run
=ltlcross= only on those formulas to look at the problems:

#+BEGIN_SRC sh :export code :eval no
710
ltlcross -F bugs.ltl 'ltl2tgba --lbtt %f >%O' 'ltl3ba -f %s >%O'
711
712
#+END_SRC

713
** =--grind=FILENAME=
714

715
716
717
This option tells =ltlcross= that, when a problem is detected, it
should try to find a smaller formula that still exhibits the
problem.
718

719
720
721
722
723
724
725
Here is the procedure used:
   - internally list the mutations of the bogus formula and sort
     them by length (as [[file:ltlgrind.org][=ltlgrind --sort=]] would do)
   - process every mutation until one is found that exhibit the bug
   - repeat the process with this new formula, and again until a formula
     is found for which no mutation exhibit the bug
   - output that last formula in =FILENAME=
726

727
728
729
730
731
If =--save-bogus=OTHERFILENAME= is provided, every bogus formula found
during the process will be saved in =OTHERFILENAME=.

Example:
#+BEGIN_SRC sh :exports code :results verbatim
732
ltlcross -f '(G!b & (!c | F!a)) | (c & Ga & Fb)' "modella %L %O" \

** =--no-check=

The =--no-check= option disables all sanity checks, and only use the supplied
formulas in their positive form.

When checks are enabled, the negated formulas are intermixed with the
positives ones in the results.  Therefore the =--no-check= option can
be used to gather statistics about a specific set of formulas.
