Title: Net-Based Modeling of Communicating Parallel Processes With Applications to VLSI Design
Authors: I. Reicher and M. Yoe1i
Abstract: In this paper we introduce a novel defmition of the concept 'implementation satisfies specification' with regard to digitca circuits.

We model composite circuits as communicating parallel processes, extending the well-known theory of communicating sequential processes due to C.A.R. Hoare.

We develop a practical approach, based on Petri nets, to the verification of asynchronous composite circuits.
