Ground Temporal Logic: A Logic for Hardware Veridication
 by David Cryluk & Paliath Narendran.

Abstract
We present a new temporal logic, GTL, appropriate for specifying properties of hardware at the register transfer level. We argue that this logic represents an improvement over model checking for some natural hardware verification problems. We show that the validity problem for this logic is II11complete. We then identify a fragment of the logic that is decidable. We show that in this fragment we are still able to encode many interesting problems, including the correctness of pipelined microprocessors.
