own FDR refinement checker is among the most powerful
explicit exhaustive finite\-state exploration tools, and is
tailored specifically to the CSP semantics. The CSPm ASCII
form of CSP, in which FDR scripts are expressed, is the
de\-facto standard for CSP tools. Recent work has
experimentally extended the notation to include a
probabilistic choice construct, and added functionality into
FDR to produce models suitable for analysis by the
Birmingham University PRISM tool.
