Logical Foundations of Services

18.pdf (0.6 MB)


In this paper we consider a logical system of networks of processes that interact in an asynchronous manner by exchanging messages through communication channels. This provides a foundational algebraic framework for service-oriented computing that constitutes a primary factor in defining logical specifications of services, the way models of these specifications capture service orchestrations, and how properties of interaction-points, i.e. points through which such networks connect to one another, can be expressed. We formalise the resulting logic as a parameterised institution, which promotes the development of both declarative and operational semantics of services in a heterogeneous setting by means of logic-programming concepts.
