"This publication deals with Computer Science and models of Concurrency. It particularly emphasises on hardware/software co-design, and the understanding of concurrency that results from these systems. A range of papers on this topic have been included, from the formal modeling of buses in co-design systems through to software simulation and development environments. The book includes a contribution by Professor Sir Tony Hoare (FRS), the founding father of the theoretical basis upon which much of the work in this series is based. He shares new thoughts on fine-grained concurrency. Another important contribution is by Professor David May (FRS) on his new architecture for massively multicore processors, its underlying programming model and applications. The editors trust you will find this publication informative and inspirational."

This extensively revised and updated new edition of Specification of Software Systems builds upon the original focus on software specification with added emphasis on the practice of formal methods for specification and verification activities for different types of software systems and at different stages of developing software systems. Topics and features: provides a wide coverage of formal specification techniques and a clear writing style, supported by end-of-chapter bibliographic notes for further reading; presents a logical structure, with sections devoted to specification fundamentals, basics of formalism, logic, set theory and relations, property-oriented specification methods, and model-based specification techniques; contains end-of-chapter exercises and numerous case studies, with potential course outlines suggested in the Preface; covers Object-Z, B-Method, and Calculus of Communicating Systems; offers material that can be taught with tool-supported laboratory projects.

Concurrent and parallel systems are intrinsic to the technology which underpins almost every aspect of our lives today. This book presents the combined post-proceedings for two important conferences on concurrent and parallel systems: Communicating Process Architectures 2017, held in Sliema, Malta, in August 2017, and Communicating Process Architectures 2018, held in Dresden, Germany, in August 2018. CPA 2017: Fifteen papers were accepted for presentation and publication, they cover topics including mathematical theory, programming languages, design and support tools, verification, and multicore infrastructure and applications ranging from supercomputing to embedded. A workshop on domain-specific concurrency skeletons and the abstracts of eight fringe presentations reporting on new ideas, work in progress or interesting thoughts associated with concurrency are also included in these proceedings. CPA 2018: Eighteen papers were accepted for presentation and publication, they cover topics including mathematical theory, design and programming language and support tools, verification, multicore run-time infrastructure, and applications at all levels from supercomputing to embedded. A workshop on translating CSP-based languages to common programming languages and the abstracts of four fringe presentations on work in progress, new ideas, as well as demonstrations and concerns that certain common practices in concurrency are harmful are also included in these proceedings. The book will be of interest to all those whose work involves concurrent and parallel systems.

Distributed systems are fast becoming the norm in computer science. Formal mathematical models and theories of distributed behaviour are needed in order to understand them. This book proposes a distributed pi-calculus called Dpi, for describing the behaviour of mobile agents in a distributed world. It is based on an existing formal language, the pi-calculus, to which it adds a network layer and a primitive migration construct. A mathematical theory of the behaviour of these distributed systems is developed, in which the presence of types plays a major role. It is also shown how in principle this theory can be used to develop verification techniques for guaranteeing the behavior of distributed agents. The text is accessible to computer scientists with a minimal background in discrete mathematics. It contains an elementary account of the pi-calculus, and the associated theory of bisimulations. It also develops the type theory required by Dpi from first principles.
