On Refinement of Generic Software Components

  title={On Refinement of Generic Software Components},
  author={Sun Meng and L. M. S. Barbosa},
This paper characterises refinement of state-based software components modelled as concrete coalgebras for some Set endofunctors. The resulting calculus is parametrized by a specification of the underlying behaviour model introduced as a strong monad. This provides a basis to reason about (and transform) state-based software designs. Sun Meng is a Fellow at UNU/IIST on leave from the School of Mathematical Science of Beijing University, China, where he is a Ph.D candidate. His research interest… CONTINUE READING
