A Calculus of Mobile Resources

Godskesen, J.Chr., Hildebrandt, T. and Sassone, V. (2002) A Calculus of Mobile Resources At 13th Int. Conference on Concurrency Theory, CONCUR '02.. , pp. 272-287.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


We introduce a calculus of Mobile Resources (MR) tailored for the design and analysis of systems containing mobile, possibly nested, computing devices that may have resource and access constraints, and which are not copyable nor modifiable per se. We provide a reduction as well as a labelled transition semantics and prove a correspondence be- tween barbed bisimulation congruence and a higher-order bisimulation. We provide examples of the expressiveness of the calculus, and apply the theory to prove one of its characteristic properties.
