Communicating and mobile systems : the [symbol for pi]-calculus by R Milner( Book )

23 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The calculus is very simple but powerful. Its most prominent notion is that of a name, and it has two important ingredients: the concept of behavioural (or observational) equivalence, and the use of a new theory of types to classify patterns of interactive behaviour. The internet, and its communication protocols fall within the scope of the theory just as much as computer programs, data structures, algorithms and programming languages. This book is the first text book on the subject; it has been long-awaited by professionals and will be welcomed by them, and their students

The space and motion of communicating agents by R Milner( Book )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The world is increasingly populated with interactive agents distributed in space, real or abstract. These agents can be artificial, as in computing systems that manage and monitor traffic or health; or they can be natural, e.g. communicating humans, or biological cells. It is important to be able to model networks of agents in order to understand and optimise their behaviour. Robin Milner's purpose is to describe in this book just such a model, and he does so by presenting a unified and rigorous structural theory, based on bigraphs, for systems of interacting agents. This theory is a bridge between the existing theories of concurrent processes and the aspirations for ubiquitous systems, whose enormous size challenges our understanding." "The book is reasonably self-contained mathematically, and is designed to be learned from: examples and exercises abound, solutions for the latter are provided."-- (p. [4]) of cover

Action structures for the [pi]-calculus by R Milner( Book )

8 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For algebraic process calculi in particular, it is shown how they may be defined by a uniform superposition of process structure upon an action structure specific to each calculus. This allows a common treatment of bisimulation congruence. The theory of action structures emphasizes the notion of effect; that is, the effect which any interaction among processes exerts upon its participants. Effects are degenerate actions, and constitute a sub-actionstructure with special properties which support the general treatment of bisimulation. Other current work on action structures is outlined, in particular their use for the [pi]-calculus. Challenges are posed for the algebraic theory, including the study of combinations of action structures
Modal logics for mobile processes by R Milner( Book )

6 editions published in 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "In process algebras, bisimulation equivalence is typically defined directly in terms of the operational rules of action; it also has an alternative characterisation in terms of a simple modal logic (sometimes called Hennessy-Milner logic [sic]. This paper first defines two forms of bisimulation equivalence for the [pi]-calculus, a process algebra which allows dynamic reconfiguration among processes; it then explores a family of possible logics, with different modal operators. It is proven that two of these logics characterise the two bisimulation equivalences. Also, the relative expressive power of all the logics is exhibited as a lattice."

The polyadic [pi]-calculus : a tutorial by R Milner( Book )

4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "The [pi]-calculus is a model of concurrent computation based upon the notion of naming. It is first presented in its simplest and original form, with the help of several illustrative applications. Then it is generalized from monadic to polyadic form. Semantics is done in terms of both a reduction system and a version of labelled transitions called commitment; the known algebraic axiomatization of strong bisimilarity is given in the new setting, and so also is a characterization in modal logic. Some theorems about the replication operator are proved. Justification for the polyadic form is provided by the concepts of sort and sorting which it supports. Several illustrations of different sortings are given

A calculus of mobile processes by R Milner( Book )

4 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "This is the second of two papers in which we present the pi-calculus, a calculus of mobile processes. The companion paper [1] contains an introduction to the calculus through a sequence of examples, together with statements of many results about it and a discussion of the history of process mobility. The purpose of the present paper is to provide a detailed presentation of some of the theory of the calculus developed to date, and in particular to establish most of the results stated in the companion paper
