Abstract
A temporal logic for causality (Tlc) is introduced.
The logic is interpreted over causal structures corre­
sponding to partial order executions of programs. For
causal structures describing the behavior of a finite
fixed set of processes, a Tlc­formula can, equivalently,
be interpreted over their linearizations. The main re­
sult of the paper is a tableau construction that gives
a singly­exponential translation from a Tlc formula
' to a Streett automaton that accepts the set of lin­
earizations satisfying '. This allows both checking the
validity of Tlc formulas and model­checking of pro­
gram properties. As the logic Tlc does not distinguish
