  abstract= "This paper considers the issues involved in
     translating specifications described in the
     CSP\textbar\textbarB formal method into Handel-C. There have
     previously been approaches to translating CSP descriptions
     to Handel-C, and the work presented in this paper is part of
     a programme of work to extend it to include the B
     component of a CSP\textbar\textbarB description. Handel-C is
     a suitable target language because of its capability of
     programming communication and state, and its compilation
     route to hardware. The paper presents two case studies that
     investigate aspects of the translation: a buffer case study,
     and an abstract arbiter case study. These
     investigations have exposed a number of issues relating to
     the translation of the B component, and have identified a
     range of options available, informing more recent work on
     the development of a style for
     CSP\textbar\textbarB specifications particularly appropriate
     to translation to Handel-C."
