Specifying systems : the TLA+ language and tools for hardware and software engineers by Leslie Lamport( Book )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the distillation of over 25 years of work by one of the world's most renowned computer scientists. A specification is a written description of what a system is supposed to do, plus a way of checking to make sure that it works. Specifying a system helps us understand it. It's a good idea to understand a system before building it, so it's a good idea to write a specification of a system before implementing it. The most effective tool to describe a specification is the Temporal Logic of Actions, or TLA, because it provides a mathematical, i.e. precise, foundation for describing systems. TLA+ is the language the author developed to write the mathematical specifications. TLA+ is available freely on the web. It can be used for both software and hardware. In fact, Intel is using TLA+ with great success in the design of a new chip. The book is divided into four parts. The first part contains all that most programmers and engineers need to know about writing specifications. The second part contains more advanced material for more sophisticated readers. The third and fourth parts comprise a reference manual for TLA+ - both the language itself as well as its tools

Should your specification language be typed? by Leslie Lamport( Book )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "Most specification languages have a type system. The languages used in some popular textbooks have half-baked type systems that are described informally and never spelled out in detail. Such type systems tend to have unexpected consequences, if not outright inconsistencies. Set theory can serve as the basis for a specification language without types. This possibility, which has been widely overlooked, offers many advantages. Set theory is simpler and more flexible than most typed formalisms. Polymorphism, overloading, and subtyping can make a type system more powerful, but at the cost of increased complexity, and such refinements can never attain the flexibility of having no types at all. Typed formalisms have advantages too, stemming from the power of mechanical type checking. While types serve little purpose in hand proofs, they do help with mechanized proofs. In the absence of verification, type checking can catch errors in specifications. It may be possible to have the best of both worlds by adding typing annotations to an untyped specification language. We consider only specification languages, not programming languages."
Pretending atomicity by Leslie Lamport( Book )

9 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We present a theorem for deriving properties of a concurrent program by reasoning about a simpler, coarser-grained version. The theorem generalizes a result that Lipton proved for partial correctness and deadlock-freedom. Our theorem applies to all safety properties
