Process Algebra for Parallel and Distributed Processing (Chapman & Hall / Crc Computational Science)

Buy
Despite the importance of applications of process algebras for the success of the field, [related publications] concentrate strongly on the theoretical achievements. This shortcoming is compensated for in a splendid way by this book, which brings together the state of the art in research on applications of process algebras.
—From the Foreword, Kees Middelburg. University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Exploring state-of-the-art applications, Process Algebra for Parallel and Distributed Processing shows how one formal method of reasoning—process algebra—has become a powerful tool for solving design and implementation challenges of concurrent systems.

Parallel Programming

Divided into three parts, the book begins by parallelizing an algorithm for the Cell Broadband Engine processor of Sony, Toshiba, and IBM. It also develops a runtime environment that can be ported to different parallel platforms and describes the formal model of action systems.

Distributed Systems

The next part presents a process algebra (mCRL2) that targets distributed applications, looks at how to turn prose descriptions into unambiguous specifications, extends pi-calculus to create a service-oriented mobility abstract machine, and introduces the Channel Ambient Machine for mobile applications.

Embedded Systems

The final section combines state-based Z with the event-based process algebra CSP in a formal methodology called Circus. It also develops a pair of process algebras (PARS) to address the problem of scheduling in real-time embedded systems and emphasizes the reuse of concurrent artifacts across different hardware platforms.

Focusing on the contributors’ own research work, this volume highlights the recent growth in this burgeoning industry. It proposes solutions to the problems of designing and implementing today’s multicore processor architectures, clusters, and grids.

Adaptive Filtering and Change Detection
Adaptive Filtering and Change Detection

Adaptive filtering is a branch of digital signal processing which enables the selective enhancement of desired elements of a signal and the reduction of undesired elements. Change detection is another kind of adaptive filtering for non-stationary signals, and is the basic tool in fault detection and diagnosis.
