Wan Fokkink: Precongruence Formats with Lookahead through Modal Decomposition


Event Details


Bloom, Fokkink & van Glabbeek (2004) presented a method to decompose formulas from Hennessy-Milner logic with regard to a structural operational semantics specification. A term in the corresponding process algebra satisfies a Hennessy-Milner formula if and only if its subterms satisfy certain formulas, obtained by decomposing the original formula. They used this decomposition method to derive congruence formats in the realm of structural operational semantics. In this talk it is shown how this framework can be extended to specifications that include bounded lookahead in their premises. This extension is used in the derivation of a congruence format for the partial trace preorder.
