WoTUG - The place for concurrent processes

Paper Details

Extending CSP

Authors: Lawrence, Adrian E.


CSP, timed or untimed, has not included a general treatment of priority, although the PRI ALT constructor is an essential part of occam. This paper introduces CSPP which includes a generalization of PRI ALT in the form of a prioritized external choice P <pribox> Q. PRI PAR is also included. A new denotational semantics is introduced, although only the simplest model is outlined. The work is intended to provide a solid rogorous foundation for hardware-software codesign. And a companion paper describes untimed HCSP which is a further extension of CSP built upon these foundations. It was first presented informally at the Twente WoTUG-20 technical meeting.
