Concurrent and Real-time Systems: The CSP Approach by Steve Schneider

By Steve Schneider

The CSP procedure has been standard within the specification, research and verification of concurrent and real-time structures, and for knowing the actual concerns that could come up whilst concurrency is current. It presents a language which allows necessities and designs to be truly expressed and understood, including a assisting idea which permits them to be analyzed and proven to be correct.This ebook helps complex point classes on concurrency protecting timed and untimed CSP. the 1st part introduces the language of CSP, the first semantic types (traces, mess ups, divergences and endless traces), and their use within the modelling, research and verification of concurrent structures. the second one 1/2 the ebook introduces time into the language, brings within the timed semantic version (timed disasters) and at last offers the speculation of timewise refinement which hyperlinks the 2 halves together.Accompanying site: the following:-Exercises and solutions-Instructors assets- instance CSP courses to run on FDR and ProBe-Links to priceless sitesPartial Contents: half I: The Language of CSP; Sequential approaches; Concurrency; Abstraction and keep watch over move; half II: studying methods; lines; Specification and Verification with lines; good disasters; Specification and Verification with disasters; disasters, Divergences, and countless strains; half III: Introducing Time; The Timed Language; Timed transition structures; half IV: Timed research; Semantics of Timed CSP; Timed Specification and Verification; Timewise Refinement; Appendix A: Event-based Time; A.1 average CSP and $tock$; A.2 Translating from Timed CSP; A.3 Notes; Appendix B: Model-checking with FDR; B.1 Interacting with FDR; B.2 How FDR tests Refinement; B.3 computing device readable CSP; Index of techniques.

Example text

There are a number of ways a system designer might choose to provide a system which meets the specification P P : P and P could both be developed, and whenever the process is run then a coin is tossed to decide which one to provide. 10. In each case a black box labelled with P P is provided, but the implementations inside the boxes are different. A mail router program might offer one of two routes: ROUTER VIA A VIA B. Whenever this program is invoked, the choice is resolved at run-time internally by considering the network traffic.

It should always be willing to accept messages. One approach to designing such a process would be to allow it to accept a message, and then create two processes: one to take responsibility for sending the message on, and the other to be a fresh copy of the original. This approach is described in CSP as follows: NODE in x NODE OUT x The process OUT x describes the part of the process which deals with sending x along channel out. There are two views with respect to dynamic process creation. The parent process might be considered as the process N in x N which is responsible for accepting inputs; and a child output process is generated every time an input occurs.

This could be achieved sequentially as out x log x SKIP, or alternatively by two interleaved threads out x SKIP log x SKIP. A book shop operates a system whereby customers pay for books at a cashier’s counter and collect them at a different counter where they had previously been lodged. The operation of the book counter may be described as follows: BOOK lodge issue chit receive receipt BOOK claim BOOK A customer may lodge a chosen book with the counter, and have a chit issued in return. In order to claim the book to take away, a receipt must be provided.
