Permission-based separation logic for message-passing concurrency

Francalanza, Adrian, Rathke, Julian and Sassone, Vladimiro (2011) Permission-based separation logic for message-passing concurrency Logical Methods in Computer Science, 7, (3), pp. 1-47. (doi:10.2168/LMCS-7(3:7)2011).

Record type: Article


We develop local reasoning techniques for message passing concurrent programs based on ideas from separation logics and resource usage analysis. We extend processes with permission-resources and define a reduction semantics for this extended language. This provides a foundation for interpreting separation formulas for message-passing concurrency. We also define a sound proof system permitting us to infer satisfaction compositionally using local, separation-based reasoning.
