A Distributed Pi-Calculus by Matthew Hennessy

By Matthew Hennessy

Allotted structures are quickly changing into the norm in computing device technological know-how. Formal mathematical versions and theories of dispensed habit are wanted to be able to comprehend them. This ebook proposes a disbursed pi-calculus referred to as Dpi, for describing the habit of cellular brokers in a allotted international. it truly is according to an latest formal language, the pi-calculus, to which it provides a community layer and a primitive migration build. A mathematical conception of the habit of those allotted platforms is constructed, within which the presence of varieties performs a huge function. it's also proven how in precept this idea can be utilized to increase verification strategies for making certain the habit of allotted brokers. The textual content is out there to machine scientists with a minimum history in discrete arithmetic. It comprises an trouble-free account of the pi-calculus, and the linked concept of bisimulations. It additionally develops the kind idea required by means of Dpi from first ideas.

The Grid 2. Blueprint for a New Computing Infrastructure

The Grid is an rising infrastructure that might essentially swap the best way we predict about-and use-computing. The observe Grid is utilized by analogy with the electrical strength grid, which gives pervasive entry to electrical energy and has had a dramatic influence on human functions and society. Many think that through permitting all elements of our info know-how infrastructure-computational functions, databases, sensors, and people-to be shared flexibly as real collaborative instruments the Grid may have an analogous remodeling influence, permitting new sessions of functions to emerge.

Sample text

The second view is an action semantics, which describes how processes can interact with other processes, perhaps as part of a larger system; this describes how processes can behave as part of a larger endeavour. 2, and thus induces automatically a bisimulation equivalence between processes. 1. It presupposes a set Names of names, ranged over by n, m, . . , a, b, c . . for communication channels or resources. We also use a set Vars of variables, place-holders for values that can be transmitted via the communication channels.

It is obtained by systematically replacing all free occurrences of values v, including identifiers, with σ (v). Of course bound variables are renamed as necessary to ensure no capture of free names or variables; for example ((new n) R)σ could be defined to be (new m)(R(σ [n → m]), where m is chosen to be fresh, and σ [n → m] is the renaming that is identical to σ except that it maps n to m. Here fresh means distinct from all of σ (n), for n in fn(R). Nevertheless there is no guarantee that the result will be a well-defined term; for example a basic value such as an integer may be substituted for a channel name.

4) above gives Sys4 −→∗ (User2 | FF | Print2 ) (Sys5 ) In Sys5 the user may send the second value, which eventually makes its way through the system, followed by a series of acknowledgements travelling in the opposite direction. We have just seen one possible computation from the system User | FF | Print Again there are possible variations, depending on recursive unwindings. But again it is possible to prove that all must terminate and the resulting stable process must be structurally equivalent to FF | print!
