Abstract
We propose new antichain-based algorithms for
checking universality and inclusion of nondeterministic tree automata (NTA).
We have
implemented these algorithms in a prototype tool and our experiments
show that they provide a significant improvement over the traditional
determinisation-based approaches. We use our
antichain-based inclusion checking algorithm to build an abstract regular tree
model checking framework based entirely on NTA. We
show the significantly improved efficiency of this  framework through a series of experiments with verifying various programs over dynamic linked tree-shaped data structures.
