Compositional Markovian Modelling Using A Process Algebra

  title={Compositional Markovian Modelling Using A Process Algebra},
  author={Jane Hillston},
We introduce a stochastic process algebra, PEPA, as a high-level modelling paradigm for continuous time Markov chains (CTMC). Process algebras are mathematical theories which model concurrent systems by their algebra and provide apparatus for reasoning about the structure and behaviour of the model. Recent extensions of these algebras, associating random variables with actions, make the models also amenable to Markovian analysis. A compositional structure is inherent in the PEPA language. As… CONTINUE READING
