Even the smallest change in the probability of a transition can cause an arbitrarily large change in the value of a property. 2 The theory is not computational.

(m X) (R Ç a ¢ lpre(X)) A Discounted Systems Theory The difference between two states in the values of discounted fixpoint formulas is bounded by their discounted bisimilarity distance. Algorithm for STOCHASTIC GAMES Distance between computing models w.r.t. Value(p,m) over property values models m discounted fixpoint discounted bisimilarity calculus Discounting is Robust Continuity over Traces: Every discounted fixpoint formula defines a reward function on traces that is continuous in the Cantor metric. Continuity over Models: If transition probabilities are perturbed by e, then discounted bisimilarity distances change by at most f(e). Discounting is robust against effects at infinity, and against numerical perturbations. Discounting is Computational The iterative evaluation of an a-discounted fixpoint formula converges geometrically in a. (So we can compute to any desired precision.) Discounting is Approximation If the discount factor tends towards 1, then we recover the classical theory: • lima! 1 a-discounted interpretation of fixpoint formula f = classical interpretation of f • lima! 1 a-discounted bisimilarity = classical (alternating; quantitative) bisimilarity Further Work • Exact computation of discounted values of temporal formulas over finite-state systems [de Alfaro, Faella, H, Majumdar, Stoelinga]. • Discounting real-time systems: continuous discounting of time delay rather than discrete discounting of number of steps [Prabhu]. Conclusions • Discounting provides a continuous and computational approximation theory of discrete and probabilistic processes. • Discounting captures an important engineering intuition.
