A Synthesis Algorithm of a Protocol Model from a Single Entity [chapter]

Bhed Bahadur Bista, Zixue Cheng, Atsushi Togashi, Norio Shiratori
1995 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
Protocol entities, in communication protocols, behave under sets of communication rules (protocols).  ...  In this paper, we propose a protocol synthesis algorithm in which a peer protocol entity is generated from a single given entity.  ...  States of a system specified in LOTOS are implicit and in FSMs explicit, thus state explosion can occur in the synthesis of protocol specifications of a large system in FSMs.  ...
