Algebraic theories for contextual pre-nets

Bruni, R., Meseguer, J., Montanari, U. and Sassone, V., (2003) Algebraic theories for contextual pre-nets Blundo, C. and Laneve, C. (eds.) At 8th Italian Conference on Theoretical Computer Science, ICTCS 2003.. , pp. 256-270.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


The algebraic models of computation for contextual nets that have been proposed in the literature either rely on a non-free monoid of objects, or introduce too many fictitious behaviors that must be somewhat filtered out. In this paper, we exploit partial membership equational logic to define a suitable theory of models, where the meaningful concurrent computations can be selected by means of membership predicates.
