Dedicated to, Boris Boaz Trakhtenbrot, in honor of his eighty fifth birthday. with deep admiration and affection, A mighty man of valor his name was Boaz. Book of Ruth 2 1, Wishing him many, many happy returns. Boris Abramovich Trakhtenbrot, The Person, Boris Abramovich Trakhtenbrot1 his. Hebrew given name is Boaz is universally admired as a founding fa. ther and long standing pillar of the discipline of computer science He is the. field s preeminent distinguished researcher and a most illustrious trailblazer and. disseminator He is unmatched in combining farsighted vision unfaltering com. mitment masterful command of the field technical virtuosity sthetic expres. sion eloquent clarity and creative vigor with humility and devotion to students. and colleagues, For over half a century Trakhtenbrot has been making seminal contributions.
to virtually all of the central aspects of theoretical computer science inaugurat. ing numerous new areas of investigation He has displayed an almost prophetic. ability to foresee directions that are destined to take center stage a decade or. more before anyone else takes notice He has never been tempted to slow down or. limit his research to areas of endeavor in which he has already earned recognition. and honor Rather he continues to probe the limits and position himself at the. vanguard of a rapidly developing field while remaining as always unassuming. and open minded, Trakhtenbrot is a grand visionary who pioneered many fascinating directions. and innovative concepts Even when working on his doctoral dissertation in the. late 1940s while every logician was thinking about infinite structures he proved. that the set of first order formul valid on finite structures is not recursively. enumerable This result which bears his name precludes the possibility of any. completeness theorem for first order predicate calculus on finite structures As. such it was the first important result in finite model theory and heralded a. field that rose dramatically in popularity over the subsequent decades as more. and more researchers realized its centrality and multitudinous applications. This was just an early instance of very many ideas of genius that Trakht. enbrot brought to the field He was the first to introduce the use of monadic. second order logic as a specification formalism for the infinite behavior of finite. automata This logic turned out to be very fundamental various temporal log. ics are just sugared fragments of the monadic logic The classic theorem that. finite automata and weak monadic second order logic are expressively equiva. lent was established by Trakhtenbrot and independently by Bu chi and Elgot in. 1958 Trakhtenbrot also initiated the study of topological aspects of languages. Boris Boaz Abramovich Avramovich Avraamovich Trakhtenbrot Trahtenbrot. Trachtenbrot Trajtenbrot, and operators and provided a characterization of operators computable by finite. automata Furthermore he provided solutions to special cases of the Church. synthesis problem which was later solved by Bu chi and Landweber The equiva. lence between the monadic logic and automata and the solvability of the Church. problem have provided the necessary underlying mathematical framework for the. development of formalisms for the description of interactive systems and their. desired properties for the algorithmic verification and the automatic synthesis. of correct implementations given logical specifications and for the advanced al. gorithmic techniques that are now embodied in industrial tools for verification. and validation, Trakhtenbrot was among the very first to consider time and space efficiency. of algorithms using what he called signalizing functions and speak about ab. stract complexity measures at a time when most others cast doubt on the very. notion His justly famous and truly elegant Gap Theorem and his development. with his student Janis Barzdins of the crossing sequence method were. groundbreaking in this regard His paper on auto reducibility provided a turn. ing point in abstract complexity In the USSR these works quickly became very. influential and in the US complexity took over as the central preoccupation of. theoretical computer scientists, Early on Trakhtenbrot recognized that the classic conceptual view of compu. tation as a sequential process does not suffice to capture the operation of modern. computers Computer networks reactive systems and concurrent computation. are all not describable in traditional terms Accordingly many of his more recent. works deal with various aspects of concurrency including data flow networks. Petri nets partial order versus branching time equivalence bi simulation real. time automata and hybrid systems His operative style remains classic Trakht. enbrot patient in depth survey of existing literature uncompromising evaluation. and critical comparison of existing approaches followed by his own extraordinary. and prescient contributions, The list of topics upon which Trakhtrenbrot has made a lasting impression is.
breathtaking in its scope decidability problems in logic finite automata theory. the connection between automata and monadic second order logic complexity. of algorithms abstract complexity algorithmic logic probabilistic computation. program verification the lambda calculus and foundations of programming lan. guages programming semantics semantics and methodology for concurrency. networks hybrid systems and much more Despite this prolificacy of subjects. the entire body of his work demonstrates the same unique melding of supreme. mathematical prowess with profound depth and thoroughness. A roll call of Trakhtenbrot s students reads like the Who s Who of comput. er science in the USSR See his academic genealogy in the first chapter of this. volume Trakhtenbrot was instrumental in the building of the computer science. department in Novosibirsk he collaborated with computer designers in the So. viet Union and he helped in the establishment of a department of theoretical. Preface XI, informatics in Jena 2 The Latvian school of computer science flourished under. the tutelage of his students Brazdins and Ru sin s Freivalds In 1980 he emigrated. from the Soviet Union and joined Tel Aviv University s School of Mathematical. Sciences There he was instrumental in the growth phase of its computer science. department now a School of Computer Science in its own right a leading aca. demic center in the Mideast Though nominally long retired he remains vitally. Trakhtenbrot is a master pedagogue and expositor He consistently sets aside. time and effort for writing surveys and textbooks His book Algorithms and Auto. matic Computing Machines first written in Russian in 1957 was translated into. English and a dozen other languages and is universally recognized as the first. important text in the field Two major contributions to computer science educa. tion were his 1965 book Introduction to the Theory of Finite Automata and his. 1973 book on Finite Automata Behavior and Synthesis both widely translated. A whole generation of computer scientists was shaped by his books Moreover. he played the key ro le in the dissemination of Soviet computer science research. in the West writing surveys on such topics as Soviet approaches to brute force. search perebor See his publication list in the first chapter of this volume. On several occasions Trakhtenbrot has treated his readers to glimpses of his. life under totalitarian rule See Chapter 2 of this volume for a detailed scientific. autobiography While in the USSR he was barred from attending most of the. international congresses to which he had been invited He suffered under the last. stages of the Stalin era plagued as it was with persecution and victimization of. idealists cosmopolitans etc Philosophers and logicians of the like of Russel. Carnap and Tarski Tajtelbaum were taboo and anyone who respected. their ideas was suspect especially Jews like Trakhtenbrot 3 His contributions. are astounding under any measure how much more so when consideration is. given to the fact that he worked under the most adverse conditions persecution. lack of support almost no access to foreign meetings and so on His undaunted. spirit should serve as an inspiration to the rest of the world. Celebrating his Birthdays, Zeroeth Birthday, Boris Abramovich Trakhtenbrot was born on 20 February 1921 Gregorian ac. cording to official records in Brichevo a small North Bessarabian shtetl present. ly in Moldova, The Friedrich Schiller University in Jena bestowed a degree of doctor honoris causa. on Trakhtenbrot in October 1997, Boaz and other idealists did receive the support and encouragement of enlightened. people like Andrei Kolmogorov Alexey Lyapunov Piotr Novikov his advisor An. drey Markov and Sophia Yanovskaya all great scientists whom Trakhenbrot always. mentions with deep affection and gratitude, XII Preface.
Sixtieth Birthday, In the summer of 1979 Zdzislaw Pawlak proposed to publish a collection of. contributions by outstanding scientists in the field of theoretical computer sci. ence and foundations of mathematics in order to honor the 60th anniversary of. Professor B A Trachtenbrot from Novosibirsk He along with Calvin Elgot. Erwin Engeler Maurice Nivat and Dana Scott were to edit the festschrift How. ever with the untimely death of Cal Elgot and Boaz s impending immigration. to Israel with his family 4 the project had to be abandoned Boaz arrived in. Israel on 26 December 1980, Seventieth Birthday, In June 1991 Zvi Galil Albert Meyer Amir Pnueli and Amiram Yehudai orga. nized An International Symposium on Theoretical Computer Science in honor. of Boris A Trakhtenbrot on the occasion of his Retirement and Seventieth Birth. day The event took place in Tel Aviv and brought together many of the world s. foremost scientists including Samson Abramsky Georgy Adelson Velsky Arnon. Avron Val Breazu Tannen Manfred Broy Bob Constable Nachum Dershowitz. Zvi Galil Rob van Glabbeek Yuri Gurevich Leonid Levin Jean Jacques Le vy. Gordon Plotkin Amir Pnueli Vaughan Pratt Alex Rabinovich Wolfgang Reisig. Vladimir Sazanov Eli Shamir Michael Taitslin and Klaus Wagner At that time. Albert Meyer eloquently highlighted his enormous debt to Trakhtenbrot the sci. entist and appreciation of Trakhtenbrot the person a debt and appreciation. that countless other scientists share, On this occasion very many well wishers who could not attend sent their. blessings by other means, Bob McNaughton wrote We were colleagues in research since our work. in logic and automata theory in the 1960 s was so close Since very early in. my own career dating back to 1950 and continuing to the present I have. always had reason to admire your contributions, Vitali Milman The name of Trakhtenbrot I heard first time in the 60s when.
I was still a student in Kharkov We studied his book on Automata and. considered him to be a father of Russian computer science I was very. proud when in 80 it was said he will join our department and was very. happy that he spent the last decade working with us. Robin Milner said You are one of the founders of our subject Every time a. new decade of computer scientists come along they re invent the subject I. hope you stay with us a long time to make sure that we re invent it properly. We would be remiss if we did not take this opportunity to acknowledge the crucial. ro le of Berta Isakovna ne e Rabinovich Boaz s wife of many years who has lovingly. selflessly and steadfastly supported Boaz through fire and water Berta was also a. motherly figure for his many students whom she always welcomed warmly and for. whom she invariably prepared the most delicious meals. Preface XIII, John Shepherdson wrote to Albert Meyer saying Please tell Boris that for. over 40 years I have enjoyed reading his highly significant and beautifully.
