This invention provides a way of verifying the behavior of a (target) finite state machine by means of an assertion machine. The observable behavior of a state machine is the set of sequences of input and output vectors that can occur during the operation of the machine. A statement about some property of these sequences is an assertion. A general way to describe a property is to describe a machine which recognizes that property. (Image Omitted)
