Re: [tlaplus] Specify and Verifying temporal properties in TLA+ Toolbox

Hello Jevitha,

you need to indicate the specification that you want to verify as one TLA+ formula, and the property to be verified by another one. You appear to include the property F ~> G in the specification, hence the model checker will consider all executions that satisfy Spec. Since there are no such executions, Spec => Prop holds for whatever property Prop you may define.

Presumably you meant to define

Spec == Init /\ [][Next]_hr /\ WF_hr(Next)

then enter F ~> G as the (temporal) formula to be verified by TLC.

Init == hr = 1

Next == hr' = IF hr < 12 THEN hr + 1 ELSE 1

F == hr = 1

G == hr = 13

Spec == Init /\ [] [Next]_hr /\ (F ~> G)
