## Wrangling monotonic systems in TLA⁺

### Tractable modeling of replicated logs & CRDTs

TLA⁺ sees a lot of use modeling distributed systems. The ability to explore all possible interleavings of events makes concurrency simple to reason about. For this TLA⁺ uses something called finite model-checking, which is really just a breadth-first search through the entire state space. The key here - and this really must be emphasized - is that the model is finite. There can’t be an infinite number of states, or of course the model checker will run forever.
