Refinement of Dynamic Systems. , University of Southampton
Existing refinement frameworks such as B allow a developer to specify a system on an abstract level. Subsequently, this abstract specification is refined into an implementation that performs the specified task. In this paper a conventional refinement approach is extended with a means for performance analysis. This new approach guides a developer towards well-performing implementations throughout the refinement process. The main achievement of this work is an elaboration of a connection between performance and trace refinement.
