dc.description.abstract-en We show that characteristic formulae for finite-state systems up to bisimulation-like equivalences (e.g., strong and weak bismilarity) can be given in the simple branching-time temporal logic EF. Since EF is a very weak fragment of the modal mu -calculus, model checking with EF is decidable for many more classes of infinite state systems. This yields a general method for proving decidability of bisimulation-like equivalences between infinite-state processes and finite-state ones. We apply this method to the class of PAD processes, which strictly subsumes PA and pushdown (PDA) processes, showing that a large class of bisimulation-like equivalences (including, e.g., strong and weak bisimilarity) is decidable between PAD and finite-state processes. Oa the other hand, we also demonstrate that no 'reasonable' bisimulation-like equivalence is decidable between state-extended PA processes and finite-state ones. Furthermore, weak bisimilarity with finite-state processes is shown to be undecidable even for state-extended BPP (which are also known as 'parallel pushdown processes'). en
