Book off to the Publisher

Lester Burnham: Remember those Posters that said, today is the first day of the rest of your life? Well that's true with everyday except one, the day you die.

I have just posted the final manuscript of the book "Reactive Systems: Modelling, Specification and Verification", co-authored with Anna Ingolfsdottir, Kim G. Larsen and Jiri Srba, off to Cambridge University Press.

We'll maintain a web site for the book, that will be published in the spring 2007. (At the moment it is empty, sorry!) On the web site, an instructor will find suggested schedules for his/her courses, exercises that can be used to supplement those in the textbook, links to other useful teaching resources that we will make available on the web, further suggestions for student projects and electronic slides that can be used for the lectures. We'll also make available CWB and Uppaal models for all of the proposed projects. Students will have access to the solutions for the mandatory and strongly recommended exercises in the book.

For the moment, you can read the preface, and have a look at the table of contents here. Then, tell your library to buy copies in due course, make a note to buy your own copy when the book is out, and consider it for course use :-)

I must say that it really feels like "the first day of the rest of my life", hence the quote from American Beauty. Now it is time to catch up with several outstanding other projects, hoping that my co-workers will still want to work with me at this stage.
