The specifications in this book are the result of a number of case studies performed by
researchers from the Programming Research Group at the University of Amsterdam.
The primary goal was to study the use of the techniques developed by the
Programming Research Group for the specification of real-life protocols. From the
pool of available case studies we made a selection that focuses on communication
protocols, which we present in an order well suited for use in education. We hope
that this book provides a first step towards a methodology for the design of
communication protocols using PSF.
