Modern information processing systems show such complex properties as distribution, parallelism, interaction, time dependency, and nondeterminism. For critical applications, mathematical methods are needed to model the systems and to support their development and validation. Impressive progress in mathematical methods for programming software systems makes it possible to think about unifying the different approaches. This book gives a comprehensive overview of existing methods and presents some of the most recent results in applying them. The main topics are: advanced programming techniques, foundations of systems engineering, mathematical support methods, and application of the methods. The approaches presented are illustrated by examples and related to other approaches.... the distribution of the data (third, fourth, and fifth refinements), and the distribution of the control (sixth and seventh refinements). ... proven automatically by the tool (no human interventions), while 33 needed a manual intervention to instruct the prover. ... 6 Formal Specification of the BRP 6.1 Purpose The specificationanbsp;...
