Title: A Weakest Precondition Semantics for Communicating Processes
Authors: Tzilla Elrad and Nissim Francez
Abstract: A weakest precondition semantics for communicating processes is presented, based on a centralized one level approach. Semantic equations are given for the CSP constructs and their continuity is proved. The representation of various operationl concepts, including delay, is discussed. Several examples of applying the rules are given.
