Designing an unbounded buffer in rely-guarantee

Lookup NU author(s): Diego Machado Dias, Dr Leo Freitas



We use a variety of consumer-producer specifications to illustrate the range of choices and rationale that arise in concurrent specifications using rely-guarantee. We also extend postconditions with a new argument to make explicit the environment assigned to the process, and present a semantics for possible values that explores the new parameter in postconditions. All specifications presented in this document were mechanised in Isabelle/HOL.
