In this paper, we devise a general framework for formalizing Description Logic Based Dynamic Systems that is parametric w.r.t. the description logic knowledge base and the progression mechanism of interest. Using this framework we study verification and adversarial synthesis for specifications expressed in a variant of first-order μ-calculus, with a controlled form of quantification across successive states. We provide key decidability results for both verification and synthesis, under a "bounded-state" assumption. We then study two instantiations of this general framework, where the description logic knowledge base is expressed in DL-Lite and scriptAscriptLscriptCscriptQscriptI, respectively. © 2013 Springer-Verlag.
