A Distributed Pi-Calculus by Matthew Hennessy

By Matthew Hennessy

Dispensed structures are quick changing into the norm in desktop technology. Formal mathematical types and theories of allotted habit are wanted so as to comprehend them. This e-book proposes a disbursed pi-calculus referred to as Dpi, for describing the habit of cellular brokers in a disbursed global. it truly is according to an current formal language, the pi-calculus, to which it provides a community layer and a primitive migration build. A mathematical thought of the habit of those dispensed platforms is constructed, within which the presence of sorts performs an enormous function. it's also proven how in precept this conception can be utilized to strengthen verification recommendations for making certain the habit of dispensed brokers. The textual content is offered to machine scientists with a minimum historical past in discrete arithmetic. It comprises an basic account of the pi-calculus, and the linked concept of bisimulations. It additionally develops the sort concept required by way of Dpi from first rules.

X | p)) 26 The asynchronous PI-CALCULUS The initial value is set to 0. There are then two methods for accessing the cell: • To obtain the current value the user must send along the access channel get a return channel that is bound to the variable y. The current value is read from s and sent to the user along the return channel. In addition the value is reinstated in the local store s. • To change the value of the cell a user must send the new value, which will be bound to x, and an acknowledgement channel, to be bound to y.

We are simply defining, very intentionally, the ability of processes to perform these actions rather than the ability of some observer to discern that these actions have taken place. 6. 5. The first two axioms, (l-in) and (l-out), are straightforward but note that the input move is only possible when the substitution of V for X in R is well-defined. The output axiom (l-out) needs no explanation. The rule (l-open) allows new names to be exported. For example using this rule, and (l-out), we may deduce that the process (new b) c!

At this stage, intuitively, communication is possible along the channel b between User and FF. However the axiom (r-comm) can only be applied if c and also ack1 , part of the value being communicated, is first extruded using (s-extr). One possible rearrangement using the structural rules is given by Sys1 ≡ (new c, ack1 )(User | (B(b, c) | B(c, d ))) | Print because c and ack1 do not occur in User. Now the axiom (r-comm) can be applied to User | B(b, c), and subsequently using (r-par) and (r-new) we obtain (new c, ack1 )(User | (B(b, c) | B(c, d ))) −→ (new c, ack1 ) (User1 | (B1 (b, c) | B(c, d ))) where User1 and B1 (b, c) represent the obvious processes, ack1 ?
