HyTech: The HYbrid TECHnology Tool

HyTech is an automatic tool for the analysis of embedded systems. HyTech computes the condition under which a linear hybrid system satisfies a temporal requirement. Hybrid systems are specified as collections of automata with discrete and continuous components, and temporal requirements are verified by symbolic model checking. If the verification fails, then HyTech generates a diagnostic error trace. The standard reference to the HyTech algorithm is [1], and the standard reference to the HyTech tool, [2].

We have compiled the same sources on Unix, Linux but also under Windows with Cygwin. If you need to use HyTech on another platform, you should be able to compile the sources yourself with little effort (works with gcc 2.9x).
