It's not a matter of the definition of a safety property so much as the definition of a safety property plus additional constraints on the specification.

A safety property is a closed set (or class) of behaviors, but in "Refinement Mappings" only stuttering-invariant specifications are considered and "Conjoining Specifications" uses TLA, where all formulas are invariant under stuttering anyway.

A state machine is a form of specification with a set of initial states and a next-state relation. While a state machine (without fairness conditions) is a safety property, it, too, can be either invariant under stuttering or not. Because in TLA all formulas are invariant under stuttering, in particular all state machines specified *in TLA* would be.

According to your paper "The existence of refinement mappings." , the safety property is a closed set , similarly to this paper.The definition you mention now, coincides with the property generated by a state machine , which is a safety property.I will first try to prove properties with the more general definition, and If I can't, go with the second definition.Ok let me see if it works.On Sat, Mar 16, 2019 at 11:46 PM Leslie Lamport <tlapl...@xxxxxxxxx> wrote:--What you missed is the fact that if a safety property is satified by a

behavior b, then it is satisfied by the behavior that has the same

first N states as b and then halts--where halting means taking nothing

but stuttering steps. In your example, since PA and PC are safety

properties, they are both satisfied by the behavior (2, 2, 2, ...) --

a behavior not satisfied by PB. Hence |= (PC /\ PA => PB) is false,

so the implication is true. And I believe the lemma is true.Leslie

Maybe I made an error in the definitions .
