Abstract
This paper describes a method for translating a satisfaction problem of the modal μcalculus into a problem of finding a certain marking of a boolean graph. By giving algorithms to solve the graph problem, we present a global model checking algorithm for the modal μcalculus of alternation depth one, which has timecomplexity ¦A¦¦T¦, where ¦A¦ is the size of the assertion and ¦T¦ is the size of the model (a labelled transition system). This algorithm extends to an algorithm for the full modal μcalculus which runs in time (¦A¦¦T¦)^{ad}, where ad is the alternation depth, improving on earlier presented algorithms. Moreover, a local algorithm is presented for alternation depth one, which runs in time ¦A¦¦T¦log(¦A¦¦T¦), improving on the earlier published algorithms that are all at least exponential.
