Abstract

In this paper we survey recent work on generalising refinement in a state-based setting. Such generalisations challenge a number of assumptions embedded in the standard formalisation of refinement in a language such as Z, and lead to simulation conditions that allow one to verify a refinement in a number of different contexts.
