Summary: We introduce the class of event-clock visibly pushdown automata (ECVPAs) as an extension of event-clock automata. The class of ECVPAs, on one hand, can model simple real-time pushdown systems and, on the other hand, is determinizable and closed under Boolean operations. We also show that for a timed visibly pushdown automaton \(A\) and an ECVPA \(B\), the inclusion problem \(L(A) \subseteq L(B)\) is decidable.
For the entire collection see [Zbl 1154.68020].
