A More Complete TLA

Stephan Merz
This paper defines a generalization of Lamport's Temporal Logic of Actions. We prove that our logic is stuttering-invariant and give an axiomatization of its propositional fragment. We also show that standard TLA is as expressive as our extension once quantification over flexible propositions is added.
