It hits stores later this month, which I guess means we should head for the check out counter now.

In science:

However, the exact element of the group currently contained in the counter is not available to the finite control: it can only check whether it is the identity element or not.
Generalized Counters and Reversal Complexity
To show that this is indeed a counter-example we must first check that the two diagrams are not isomorphic.
On tabulating virtual strings
An additional check will be performed by a system called LMC (Little Muon Counters), measuring the muons from pion and kaon decays coming at wide angles from the decay pipe .
Backgrounds in Neutrino Appearance Signal at MiniBooNE
Otherwise, if the checking result is false, the LSC simulator returns a least prefix failure trace as a counter-example evidence, so that the LSC users can easily re-construct the simulation anti-scenarios.

Consider a counter automaton A to be checked for zeroness.
On the Complexity of the Equivalence Problem for Probabilistic Automata
Indeed, one must be able to check that a particular counter is equal to zero, namely the one counting processes in the critical section.
Model Checking Vector Addition Systems with one zero-test
Therefore, when checking that x + uzu = y + uzu are language equivalent rather than x = y, we rule out all counter-examples to x = y that contain a substring belonging to z : such counter-examples are irrelevant since z is known to be empty.
Kleene Algebra with Tests and Coq Tools for While Programs
Once we know that we have to check only the separation locally at the walls in a (cid:12)xed model, the obvious question is, how can we test if A and B are separable in (cid:6)W [Z]? Fortunately there is a very nice geometric criterion to do that in terms of the shadows and counter{shadows of A and B in W .
Separation of Semialgebraic Sets
For all walls W ; : : : ; Wr of A and B check whether the shadows AWi, BWi and the counter{shadows AtWi, B tWi are generically separable (apply induction).
Separation of Semialgebraic Sets
In recognizing the language L4 = {ww | w ∈ {0, 1}∗} the full power of a simple head was used in, but this is not necessary. A counter machine can first check that the input contains an even number of symbols.

Bounded Counter Languages
We show that the model-checking problem restricted to flat counter systems in the presence of LTL with past-time operators is in NP (Theorem 7.4) by combining the above-mentioned proof techniques (we call this problem MC(PLTL[C], CF S )).
Taming Past LTL and Flat Counter Systems
The verification problem we are interested in is the model-checking problem for PLTL[C] over counter systems, written MC(L, C ), where L is a fragment of PLTL[C] and C is a class of counter systems.
Taming Past LTL and Flat Counter Systems
It is known that for the full class of counter systems, the model-checking problem is undecidable; this is due to the fact that reachability of a control state is undecidable for counter systems manipulating at least two counters .
