We show that the model checking problem of the μ-calculus can be viewed as an instance of static analysis. We propose Succinct Fixed Point Logic (SFP) within our logical approach to static analysis as an extension of Alternation-free Least Fixed Logic (ALFP). We generalize the notion of stratification to weak stratification and establish a Moore Family result for the new logic as well. The semantics of the μ-calculus is encoded as the intended model of weakly stratified clause sequences in SFP.
