Paper: A Fully Abstract Domain Model for the pi-Calculus (at LICS 1996)

Authors: Ian Stark


Abramsky's domain equation for bisimulation and the author's categorical models for names combine to give a domain-theoretic model for the p-calculus. This is set in a functor category which provides a syntax-free interpretation of fresh names, privacy, visibility and non-inteference between processes. The model is fully abstract for strong late bisimilarity and equivalence (bisimilarity under all name substitutions).
