Re: [tlaplus] teaching TLA

Dear Daniel Leivant,

Leslie's hyperbook is an obvious source for many ideas for such a course, it is essentially a tutorial: http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/people/lamport/tla/hyperbook.html.

I have occasionally given TLA courses at summer schools, and I'll send you a set of slides off-list. For a description that focuses more on the logic of TLA, you may find some material in http://www.loria.fr/~merz/papers/tla+logic2008.html.

The TLA+ distribution comes with a set of a few examples for the use of the model checker. I'm not sure if these are part of the TLA+ Toolbox distribution of TLC, but they are (or at least used to be) part of the standalone (command-line) tools available from http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/people/lamport/tla/tools.html#downloading.

Best regards,

I plan to incorporate next semester an introduction to TLA (and temporal logic) into a graduate introductory course on formal logic and program verification.
If anyone has any ideas, material, pointers, or experience to share, that would be tremendously helpful and greatly appreciated.

Thanks much in advance and best wishes  - Daniel
