Deconstructing behavioural theories of mobility

Rathke, Julian and Sobocinski, Pawel (2008) Deconstructing behavioural theories of mobility At Fifth IFIP International Conference on Theoretical Computer Science (TCS), Italy. , pp. 507-520. (doi:10.1007/978-0-387-09680-3_34).

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


We re-examine the standard structural operational semantics of the ?-calculus with the view that both process structure and contextual observational power should play roles in describing the behavioural theory. To that end we provide a decomposition of the operational semantics of ? which allows for a systematic definition of labelled transitions. These are derived from the calculus’ underlying reduction rules by following the contexts-as-labels philosophy while being presented using the structural approach. Our novel transition system refines to a composite description of the standard early lts. We generalise our technique to higher-order and asynchronous variants
