Title: Testing preorders for clients and peers

Date: 10/01/2012
Time: 1:00 pm
Location: Sala riunioni
Type: research talk
Speaker: Giovanni Bernardi (Trinity College, Dublin)

The must testing is a formalism that let us reason on the safety of  computations performed by two communicating parties; typically a  client (test) and a server (process). By using the must testing one can define three refinements that state when it is safe to replace servers, clients, or peers.
In this talk we explain the classic semantic characterisation of the must preorder for servers, and then we show how to generalise so as to characterise also the preorders for clients and peers.
