English abstract:
In this article, we investigate LTL specifications where γ [ϕ ∧ ψ] is equivalent to γ [ϕ] ∧ γ [ψ] independent of ϕ and ψ. Formulas γ with this property are called distributive queries because they naturally arise in Chanīs seminal approach to temporal logic query solving [Chan 2000]. As recognizing distributive LTL queries is PSPACE-complete, we consider distributive fragments of LTL defined by templates as in Buccafurri et al. [2001]. Our main result is a syntactic characterization of distributive LTL queries in terms of LTL templates: we construct a context-free template grammar LTLQx which guarantees that all specifications obtained from LTLQx are distributive, and all templates not obtained from LTLQx have simple nondistributive instantiations.
