Unification and multiple views of data in Z

Boiten, Eerke Albert, Derrick, John, Bowman, Howard, Steen, Maarten (1995) Unification and multiple views of data in Z. In: van Vliet, J.C., ed. Computer Science in the Netherlands 1995. . pp. 73-85. Stichting Mathematisch Centrum, Amsterdam ISBN 90-6196-460-1.


This paper discusses the unification of Z specifications, in particular specifications that maintain different representations of what is intended to be the same datatype. Essentially this amounts to integrating previously published techniques for combining multiple viewpoints and for combining multiple views. It is shown how the technique proposed in this paper indeed produces unifications, and that it generalises both previous techniques.
