Example text

1. 2. 3. 4. 1 Case 1: For What Values of S Does ftrueg S ftrueg Hold? In this case, the answer certainly includes S D skip, since we have just seen that fQg skip fQg holds for all values of Q, and thus specifically for Q D true. The questions is, does ftrueg S ftrueg hold for any other instances of S ? e. ftrueg S ftrueg is actually just an abbreviated way of asserting the following predicate: If the computer is in a state belonging to the set Statestrue just before S executes, then S will terminate and the computer will end up in a state belonging to the set Statestrue .

It seems, therefore, that the predicate ftrueg S ftrueg is only rendered false by programs which loop forever when started in some state. Note carefully that S is not required to loop forever when started from every state. If there is only one state from which to launch S which will cause it to loop forever, then ftrueg S ftrueg must be judged to be false. The overall conclusion therefore is as follows. ftrueg S ftrueg is true for any S that always terminates, no matter from which state it is started.

If one needs to implement the max example specified above, (say in Java) a particular choice of a condition has to be made, and particular assignment statements have to be used, both in the context of an if-else command. But it need not be the case that non-determinism represents alternative paths to the same outcome, as was the case in this max example. Sometimes, a nondeterministic GCL specification can be used to specify conditions under which random outcomes occur. Although GCL will not be used in this fashion here, for completeness the following artificial example is provided to illustrate the idea.
