We introduce a formal framework for specifying, detecting, and generating spatial patterns in reaction diffusion networks. Our approach is based on a novel spatial superposition logic, whose semantics is defined over the quad-tree representation of a partitioned image. We demonstrate how to use rule-based classifiers to efficiently learn spatial superposition logic formulas for several types of patterns from positive and negative examples. We implement pattern detection as a model-checking algorithm and we show that it achieves very good results on test data sets which are different from the training sets. We provide a quantitative semantics for our logic and we develop computational framework where our quantitative model-checking algorithm works in synergy with a particle swarm optimization technique to synthesize the parameters leading to the formation of desired patterns in reaction diffusion networks.

A formal methods approach to pattern synthesis in reaction diffusion systems
Aydın Göl, Ebru; Belta, Calin (2015-02-12)
We propose a technique to detect and generate patterns in a network of locally interacting dynamical systems. Central to our approach is a novel spatial superposition logic, whose semantics is defined over the quad-tree of a partitioned image. We show that formulas in this logic can be efficiently learned from positive and negative examples of several types of patterns. We also demonstrate that pattern detection, which is implemented as a model checking algorithm, performs very well for test data sets diffe...
An adaptive, energy-aware and distributed fault-tolerant topology-control algorithm for heterogeneous wireless sensor networks
Deniz, Fatih; Bagci, Hakki; KÖRPEOĞLU, İBRAHİM; Yazıcı, Adnan (2016-07-01)
This paper introduces an adaptive, energy-aware and distributed fault-tolerant topology control algorithm, namely the Adaptive Disjoint Path Vector (ADPV) algorithm, for heterogeneous wireless sensor networks. In this heterogeneous model, we have resource-rich supernodes as well as ordinary sensor nodes that are supposed to be connected to the supernodes. Unlike the static alternative Disjoint Path Vector (DPV) algorithm, the focus of ADPV is to secure supernode connectivity in the presence of node failures...
A Divide and Conquer Approach for Construction of Large-Scale Signaling Networks from PPI and RNAi Data Using Linear Programming
Ozsoy, Oyku Eren; Can, Tolga (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-07-01)
Inference of topology of signaling networks from perturbation experiments is a challenging problem. Recently, the inference problem has been formulated as a reference network editing problem and it has been shown that finding the minimum number of edit operations on a reference network to comply with perturbation experiments is an NP-complete problem. In this paper, we propose an integer linear optimization (ILP) model for reconstruction of signaling networks from RNAi data and a reference network. The ILP ...
A new real-time suboptimum filtering and prediction scheme for general nonlinear discrete dynamic systems with Gaussian or non-Gaussian noise
Demirbaş, Kerim (Informa UK Limited, 2011-01-01)
A new suboptimum state filtering and prediction scheme is proposed for nonlinear discrete dynamic systems with Gaussian or non-Gaussian disturbance and observation noises. This scheme is an online estimation scheme for real-time applications. Furthermore, this scheme is very suitable for state estimation under either constraints imposed on estimates or missing observations. State and observation models can be any nonlinear functions of the states, disturbance and observation noises as long as noise samples ...
Synthesis of past time signal temporal logic formulas using monotonicity properties
Ergürtuna, Mert.; Aydın Göl, Ebru; Department of Computer Engineering (2020)
Due to its expressivity and efficient algorithms, Signal Temporal Logic (STL) is widely used in runtime verification, formal control and analysis of time series data. While it is relatively easy to define an STL formula, simulate the system and mark the unexpected behaviors according to the formula as in the testing process, finding an STL formula that would detect the underlying cause of the errors is a complicated process. The main motivation of this thesis is to find a method that would explain the event...
