Reactive bisimulation semantics for a process algebra with time-outs


Rob van Glabbeek


UNSW Sydney


This paper introduces the counterpart of strong bisimilarity for labelled transition systems extended with time-out transitions. It supports this concept through a modal characterisation, congruence results for a standard process algebra with recursion, and a complete axiomatisation.
