P.S.: I realize that I was imprecise in my answer. If you want to check that your action formula holds at all transitions of a system whose variables are contained in the tuple vars, you should write

[][(y=0 /\ y' = 0) \/ (y # 0 /\ y' = y-1)]_vars

However, if you want to check that the formula is true for all transitions that change y, you should write

[][(y=0 /\ y' = 0) \/ (y # 0 /\ y' = y-1)]_y

As I wrote, this is an action formula, not a temporal formula expected for properties. If you want to check that this action formula holds at all transitions, you can write[][(y=0 /\ y' = 0) \/ (y # 0 /\ y' = y-1)]_y(you may also use the tuple "vars" as the subscript if it includes y).StephanOn 30 Apr 2021, at 15:09, c.burge...@gmail.com <c.burge...@xxxxxxxxx> wrote:Thanks, clearly it doesn't help when I get my logical syntaxes confused!

I now have:(y=0 /\ y' = 0) \/ (y # 0 /\ y' = y-1)

But when I put this as a property in TLC, I get the error:

I believe "->" represents implication in your formula, but it is written "=>" in TLA+.3. The expressions on both sides of an implication should be Boolean, but the _expression_ on the right-hand side is y-1.4. The (action) formula corresponding to your informal statement can be written as\/ y' = 0\/ y # 0 /\ y' = y-1A similar formula (but with a slightly different meaning) isy' = IF y # 0 THEN y-1 ELSE 0StephanHi again!

I have the following temporal formula:y'= 0 \/ y ~0 -> y-1

Which I hope says that the next value of y is zero or y-1 if y is not zero.

However, when I put this as a property in TLC, I get the error:

Was expecting ===== or more module body, encountered '~' in Properties at line 1 and token 'y'.

Obviously it's not happy with the ~ (equally unhappy with \lnot), but I'm not sure how to proceed from here!--
