CSP, partial automata, and coalgebras

  title={CSP, partial automata, and coalgebras},
  author={Uwe Wolter},
  journal={Theor. Comput. Sci.},
The paper presents a %rst reconstruction of Hoare’s theory of CSP in terms of partial automata and related coalgebras. We show that the concepts of processes in Hoare (Communicating Sequential Processes, Prentice-Hall, Englewood Cli-s, NJ, 1985) are strongly related to the concepts of states for special, namely, %nal partial automata. Moreover, we show how the deterministic and nondeterministic operations in Hoare (1985) can be interpreted in a compatible way by constructions on the semantical… CONTINUE READING
