Generalized Mean-payoff and Energy Games

Krishnendu Chatterjee, Laurent Doyen, Thomas A. Henzinger & Jean-FrançOis Raskin
In mean-payoff games, the objective of the protagonist is to ensure that the limit average of an infinite sequence of numeric weights is nonnegative. In energy games, the objective is to ensure that the running sum of weights is always nonnegative. Generalized mean-payoff and energy games replace individual weights by tuples, and the limit average (resp. running sum) of each coordinate must be (resp. remain) nonnegative. These games have applications in the synthesis of resource-bounded...
