Project Acronym: Ametist

Title: Advanced Methods for Timed Systems

Objective: The main objective of the AMETIST project is to develop a powerful modelling methodology supported by efficient computerized problem-solving tools for the modelling and analysis of complex, distributed real-time systems. In particular, the project will address problems in connection with time-dependent behaviour and dynamic resource allocation. Problems of this type are manifested under different names in application domains such as manufacturing, transport, communication networks, real-time software and digital circuits. We intend to develop a unifying mathematical modelling framework for these phenomena based on the existing body of theory and tools for the so-called timed automata model, which has emerged as a very promising formalism for the modelling and analysis of real-time related phenomena. By doing so we want to move the state-of-the-art to a new level of maturity.
