We help engineers build safe and reliable hardware, software, and cyber-physical systems, using a unique and promising strategy: combining inductive techniques (from the area of machine learning) with deductive techniques (from the area of mathematical logic).
Filip Mazowiecki has joined the institute as a research group leader. His research focuses on the theoretical analysis of models like Petri nets and weighted automata, working on fundamental questions like reachability and equivalence.
Damien Zufferey and Daniel Neider are co-teaching Advanced Automata Theory in summer 2019 at the University of Kaiserslautern.
Georg Zetzsche has joined the institute as a tenure-track faculty member. His research focuses on issues of decidability, complexity, synthesis, and expressiveness arising in program verification and mathematics.
MPI-SWS researchers are investigating what classes of infinite-state programs can be analyzed algorithmically by viewing computer programs abstractly as dynamical systems.
