Abstract: Recently,statistical model checking technology has been widely used,and different statistical algorithms have different effects on the performance of the statistical model checking.This paper mainly compared the running time of different statistical algorithms,thus analyzed the applicable environment of the algorithms.The statistical algorithms include Chernoff algorithm,sequential algorithm,smart aim-listed probability estimation algorithm,smart content testing algorithm and Monte Carlo algorithm.Models are the Wireless LAN (WLAN) and the Dining Philosophers problem,using PLASMA model checking tool for validation.The result shows that different statistical algorithms have different influences on the efficiency of model checking when the environment is different.Sequential algorithm is fit for verifying the reachability of state,and the time performance is the best.Smart content testing algorithm and Monte Carlo algorithm are fit for verifying complex models.This conclusion can help the selection of statistical algorithms in model checking,in order to improve the efficiency of model checking.
