The Church Synthesis Problem with Metric

Mark Jenkins, JoëL Ouaknine, Alexander Rabinovich & James Worrell
Church's Problem asks for the construction of a procedure which, given a logical specification S(I,O) between input strings I and output strings O, determines whether there exists an operator F that implements the specification in the sense that S(I,F(I)) holds for all inputs I. Buechi and Landweber gave a procedure to solve Church's problem for MSO specifications and operators computable by finite-state automata. We consider extensions of Church's problem in two orthogonal directions: (i) we...
