Abstract

This paper presents a formalisation of the steam boiler problem using Circus, a unified theory of the formal specification languages Z and CSP. The aim of Circus is to provide powerful support for the specification of the data-oriented and behavioural aspects of concurrent systems, and to provide a calculational development technique for languages similar to Occam, Java, and Handel-C.
