The task is to find an equivalent LTL formula for $G(a \Rightarrow Yb)$, which doesn't contain the Y operator. My idea is to search for invalid path patterns with 2 $a$'s in a row, e.g. bbbbaab.
Therefore I'm thinking of $G(Xa \Rightarrow b)$, so whenever an $a$ occurs in the next state the the current state must be true for $b$. But I have a problem with the starting states. Consider a path starting with $a$, e.g. s3->s4->... this path would be false for the original formula (iv), since Yb is always false for the first state. But this exact state would be true for the formula $G(Xa \Rightarrow b)$.
How do I have to modify my formula to also cover the starting states correctly?
