Beschreibung

Mobile systems, whose components communicate and change their structure, now pervade the informational world and the wider world of which it is a part. The science of mobile systems is as yet immature, however. This book presents the pi-calculus, a theory of mobile systems. The pi-calculus provides a conceptual framework for understanding mobility, and mathematical tools for expressing systems and reasoning about their behaviours. The book serves both as a reference for the theory and as an extended demonstration of how to use pi-calculus to describe systems and analyse their properties. It covers the basic theory of pi-calculus, typed pi-calculi, higher-order processes, the relationship between pi-calculus and lambda-calculus, and applications of pi-calculus to object-oriented design and programming. The book is written at the graduate level, assuming no prior acquaintance with the subject, and is intended for computer scientists interested in mobile systems.

Pressestimmen

"Sangiorgi and Walker have written an extremely valuable account of the pi-calculus which should be appreciated by researchers in theoretical computer science and related areas of symbolic logic, as it covers the basic theory rigorously and in great depth. It is a valuable reference for those of us who are active researchers in this area." Symoblic Logic
