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

24 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 311 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 175 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 28 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
A calculus of mobile processes by R Milner( Book )

13 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Section 1 contains a description of the syntax agents and a discursive presentation of the transitional semantics and the definitions of strong bisimulation and strong ground bisimilarity. The following section contains a series of properties of the transition system and of strong ground bisimilarity. A complete axiomatization of strong ground bisimilarity of finite agents, together with some results concerning a useful family of indexed equivalences, are presented in Section 3. Long proofs omitted from Sections 2 and 3 are collected in Section 4."

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 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One example is the presentation of data structures as processes which respect a particular sorting; another is the sorting for a known translation of the [lambda]-calculus into [pi]-calculus. For this translation, the equational validity of [beta]-conversion is proved with the help of replication theorems. THe paper ends with an extension of the [pi]-calculus to [omega]-order processes, and a brief account of the demonstration by Davide Sangiorgi that higher-order processes may be faithfully encoded at first-order. This extends and strengthens the original result of this kind given by Bent Thomson for second-order processes."
