Visual semantics Sends before corresponding receives. Events on the same process line execute in order of appearance, from top to bottom.

9
Visual order (wysiwyg) If some event (send, receive) is higher on the line than another, it comes first. Sends precede matching receives. P1P3P2 M1 M2 M3 M4 M5 M6

11
Causal Order and Races Sends before matching receive. Receive or sends before sends of same process. Two receives on the same process sent from the same process. P1P3P2 M1 M2 M3 M4 M5 M6 Races: check if every pair of events ordered by the visual order appears in the transitive closure of the causal order.

Calculating the transitive closure Structure (E, R). E – Events, R E E. R * The transitive closure. Defined as follows: a R * b if there is a sequence x 1 x 2 … x n where a=x 1, b=x n, and x i R x i+1 for 1 i

16
Can also deal with time P1P2 [2,4] [3,5] [2,3] [7,10] Use time difference matrices.

17
Races in HMSCs. Definition For each HMSC M execution Ex, define the linearizations according to the visual order lin vis (Ex) and the linearizations according to the causal order lin caus (Ex). Extend to all executions: lin vis (Ex) and lin caus (Ex). Always lin vis (Ex) lin caus (Ex). Races Races : when lin vis (Ex) lin caus (Ex).

18
Mazurkiewicz Traces Alphabet {a,b,c} Independence: aIb, bIc Equivalence classes of words (denoted using representatives): [aabb]=[abba] Regular trace language: can be defined using concatenation, star, union, intersection. Note: [ab]* is not recognizable (by automata).

19
Visual concatenation P1P3P2P1P3P2 P1P3P2P1P3P2 connect approve fail req_service report P1P2P3 connect fail report approve connect fail report AB CD Execution: concatenation of a maximal path in the HMSC.

20
Other problems… Global decision P1P2 P1P2 + =? What if one process will start to behave according to M1 and the other will start according to M2? M1M2

21
Races for HMSCs Undecidable [MP99] Translate to language theory of traces, which are closed w.r.t. commuting certain pairs of letters. Intuition: moving from visual to causal semantic introduces more commutations: Two receives on the same process line (from different processes) are dependent on visual and independent on causal order. Reduction to universality of trace languages (things are independent with causal semantics). Independent Language L Independent

22
Model checking Write both specification and system as HMSCs. Do concatenation. Write specification in LTL. Interpret over the linearizations of the partial orders. In both cases: undecidable.

23
Post Correspondence Problem List of pairs: w1:(aab,aa), w2:(aba,ab), … wn:(a,bb). Want to find if we find a set of indexes i 1, i 2, …, i k, such that concatenating the lefthand words and concatenating the righthand words is the same. Supose we take indexes 1, 2, n, 1. We get: lefthand: aab aba a aab righthand: aa ab bb aa

25
Some solutions: Obtain decidability under the following condition [MP99,AY99]: Every HMSCs cycle covers a strongly connected component in the communication graph. An edge exist from a process P i to a process P j if there is a communication from P i to P j. The specification HMSCs allows any additional gaps [MPS98]. Put limit on message queues [Holzmann]

35
Left closed CHMSCs Does not allow unmatched receive event that is not yet matched by a previous unmatched send. HCMSC is realizable if every path is matched. Can be checked in polynomial time using a nondeterministic stack machine.

36
How to check for realizability? What can go wrong? 1. More unmatched receives than sends. 2. The kth unmatched send before a mathced pair, the kth receive after. 3. The kth unmatched send has name C, the kth unmatched receive has name D. How to check with a stack machine for each pair of processes? 1+2: Push a £ for each unmatched send, pop a £ for each unmatched receive. 3: Guess that its a name mismatch upon seeing an unmatched send. Ignore further sends. Pop £ as usual for receives, until corresponding receive occurs.

37
Now we can translate finite state protocols to CHMSCs Any finite state protocol can be translated. Trivial translation: any transition in finite state graph makes one CHMSC node, with possibly an unmatched message. This does not give more information than finite state graph. Try to optimize: take some paths. Break graph into cycle free paths (e.g., using DFS and back arrows). Use partial order reduction (sleep sets) to minimize number of paths.

Some specifications (req --> <> ack) Every request is followed by acknowledge. ¬<>(transA /\ <> (transB /\ <>transA)) Transaction B cannot interfere with transaction A. (beginA --> O (transA U finishA )) The execution of transaction A is not interrupted by any other event.

48
Conclusions Visual notation have advantages over textual representation. MSCs is a standard for describing concurrent interactions. MSCs are based on partial order semantics. MSCs raise many interesting research problems, e.g., race condition. Model checking for MSCs is undecidable [GP,AY]. TLC model checking is based on partial order semantics and is decidable. Some extensions to the MSC standard are useful, e.g., CHMSCs, LSCs.
