In formal verification, we check the correctness of a system with respect to a desired property by checking whether a mathematical model of the system satisfies a specification that formally expresses the property. In the automata-theoretic approach to formal verification, we model both the system and the specification by automata. Questions about systems and their specifications are then reduced to questions about automata. The goal of this course is to teach the basics of automata on infinite words and their applications in formal verification.
