Development of a formalism for modelling and analysis of dynamic reconfiguration of dependable real-time systems: a technical diary (2008)

Author(s): Bhattacharyya A, Fitzgerald JS

    Abstract: This paper presents the first step towards a formalism for the modelling and analysis of dynamic reconfiguration of dependable real-time systems. The first version of our formalism (CCSdp) is focused on dynamic process reconfiguration. That is, process creation, deletion and replacement at run-time. We illustrate the process through which CCSdp is being developed using a series of trials in modelling a highly simplified sensor array, in order to determine the simplest construct necessary for modelling process reconfiguration. We define the syntax and operational semantics of CCSdp, and identify a bisimulation for further investigation.
