About the Authors
  • Formal methods is the term used to describe the specification and verification of software and software systems using mathematical logic. Various methodologies have been developed and incorporated into software tools. An important subclass is distributed systems. There are many books that look at particular methodologies for such systems, e.g. CSP, process algebra. This book offers a more balanced introduction for graduate students that describes the various approaches, their strengths and weaknesses, and when they are best used. Milner’s CCS and its operational semantics are introduced, together with notions of behavioral equivalence based on bisimulation techniques and with variants of Hennessy-Milner modal logics. Later in the book, the presented theories are extended to take timing issues into account. The book has arisen from various courses taught in Iceland and Denmark and is designed to give students a broad introduction to the area, with exercises throughout.

    • Broad accessible introduction to the topic - the first book to cover all the different approaches
    • Based on taught courses, and containing case studies and many exercises, this book is ideal as a graduate text
    • Offers first presentation in book form of Hennessy-Milner logic with recursive definitions and its applications

    Firstly i am very satisfied with this book. but when it comes to the page 205 ,second line from down i cant sure whether is it mistake or not but there is little problem related to term cx ,.cx have to be 1 for the timed automaton on the left in Example 11.4. thanks.
