By Roland Backhouse (auth.), Charles Rattray, Savitri Maharaj, Carron Shankland (eds.)

This publication constitutes the refereed complaints of the tenth overseas convention on Algebraic method and software program expertise, AMAST 2004, held in Stirling, Scotland, united kingdom in July 2004.

The 35 revised complete papers awarded including abstracts of five invited talks and an invited paper have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen from sixty three submissions. one of the issues lined are all present concerns in formal equipment with regards to algebraic techniques to software program engineering together with summary information varieties, technique algebras, algebraic specification, version checking, abstraction, refinement, version checking, nation machines, rewriting, Kleene algebra, programming common sense, and so forth.

Logic Program Synthesis and Transformation: Proceedings of LOPSTR 92, International Workshop on Logic Program Synthesis and Transformation, University ... 2-3 July 1992

Good judgment application synthesis and transformation are subject matters of valuable value to the software program undefined. The call for for software program cannot be met by way of the present offer, by way of quantity, complexity, or reliability. the main promising answer appears to be like the elevated automation of software program creation: programmer productiveness might increase, and correctness should be ensured via the applying of mathematical equipment.

Example text

Namely, you cannot use modelchecking techniques to prove results about about infinite families of about networks of arbitrary size: this is the parameterised model checking problem (PMCP) which is, in general undecidable [1]. But in some subclasses of systems PMCP is decidable. We consider two interesting subclasses: proving indexed safety properties by abstraction, and unindexed liveness properties by induction. The latter is suitable when the individual processes degenerate. In both cases we develop some general techniques for state based specification with asynchronous communication, and then illustrate the techniques with a number of examples using the specification language Promela and the model-checker Spin.

The law allows experimentation with what is called location-independent voting. It has resulted in plans to allow voting via internet and phone in the 2004 elections for the European Parliament. This involves a one-time, limited experiment, largely intended to explore the possibilities and to gather experience with the required techniques and procedures. Low-Tech Approach These electronic elections are set up for expatriats. They already have the possibility to participate in elections via voting by (ordinary) mail.
