BIP-SMC : A Statistical Model Checking Engine for the BIP framework

BIP-SMC is a Statistical Model Checker, a tool for formal modeling and statistical analysis of systems exhibiting stochastic behaviors.

Models subject to SMC analysis are described in the stochastic BIP language, a component-based formal language. They can have as underlying semantics DTMCs, CTMCs, and GSMPs. Properties to be verified can be specified in Probabilistic Bounded LTL and MTL.
