Howe's Method for Contextual Semantics

4.pdf (0.5 MB)


We show how to use Howe's method to prove that context bisimilarity is a congruence for process calculi equipped with their usual semantics. We apply the method to two extensions of HOpi, with passivation and with join patterns, illustrating different proof techniques.
