Event-B model decomposition

Pascal, Carine and Silva, Renato (2009) Event-B model decomposition At DEPLOY Plenary Technical Workshop 2009. 21 - 23 Oct 2009. 6 pp.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)


Two methods have been identified in the DEPLOY project for Event-B model decomposition: the shared variable decomposition (called A-style decomposition), and the shared event decomposition (or B-style decomposition). Both allow the decomposition of a (concrete) model into several independent sub-models which may then be refined separately. The purpose of this paper is to introduce the Event-B model decomposition, from theory (A-style vs. B-style, differences and similarities) to practice (decomposition plug-in of the Rodin [1] platform).
