# Verification of Temporal Property

Hi,

I am learning TLA+ now, and I want to write a testing spec to exercise as below:

-------------------------------- MODULE Sum --------------------------------
EXTENDS Naturals, TLC

CONSTANT sum

VARIABLE x,y

vars == <<x,y>>

Init == /\ x \in 1..10
/\ y \in 1..10

Next == IF (x+y#sum) THEN /\ x' = RandomElement(1..10)
/\ y' = RandomElement(1..10)
/\ PrintT(<<x,y>>)
ELSE /\ PrintT(<<x,y>>)
/\ UNCHANGED <<x,y>>

Liveness == WF_vars(Next)

Property1 == <>(x+y=10)

Spec == Init /\ [][Next]_<<vars>>

The purpose of this spec is make summation of two variables equal 10, and keeping the values unchanged when the summation is 10.  The following picture is the Model Checking Results:

1. why Temporal properties were violated at State(num=1) rather than other states?
2. Can I use Property1 == <>(x+y=10) to verify that x+y eventually equlas to 10? or at some time x+y equals to 10? or what is the right temporal property to verify this?
3. Can anybody point out as much as possible errors in this spec and tell me the reason?

I appreciate,

Yong
