Equivalences among logics of programs

Albert R. Meyer, Jerzy Tiuryn
1984 Journal of computer and system sciences (Print)  
When programs are modelled as effective flowcharts, the logics of deterministic and nondeterministic programs are equivalent.  ...  Several different first-order formal logics of programs-Algorithmic Logic, Dynamic Logic, and Logic of Effective Definitions-are compared and shown to be equivalent to a fragment of constructive Lolw .  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We are grateful to Piotr Berman and Rohit Parikh for their detailed comments.  ...

Translating flowcharts to non-deterministic languages

Surinder Kumar Jain, Chenyi Zhang, Bernhard Scholz
2012 Proceedings of the ACM SIGPLAN 2012 workshop on Partial evaluation and program manipulation - PEPM '12  
In this work, we translate programs in a deterministic flowchart language to a non-deterministic algebraic modelling language.  ...  Modeling languages are used to verify software and can be classified into deterministic modeling languages and non-deterministic modeling languages.  ...  Acknowledgments This research was supported under Australian Research Council's Discovery Projects funding scheme (DP1096445) and Australian Research Council's Linkage Projects funding scheme (LP0989643  ...

So, the author considers deterministic programs as a special case of nondeterministic programs.  ...  First, he gives a semantics which allows him to study correctness of nondeterministic flowcharts in part II.  ... 

On flowchart theories: Part II. The nondeterministic case

Gh. Ştefǎnescu
1987 Theoretical Computer Science  
We give a calculus for nondeterministic flowchart schemes similar to the calculus of polynomials.  ...  It uses a formal representation of flowchart schemes and a natural equivalence on these formal representations.  ...  This means that all valid deterministic laws and the corresponding dual laws are to be considered as valid nondeterministic laws. Exa e.  ...

On the Descriptional Complexity of Production Systems

Peter Trum
1985 International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
In this framework these methods are compared from the viewpoint of descriptional complexity giving us some insight by which means problems can be described in an easy and succinct way.  ...  controlled production systems• Def. t An interpretation of a PSS Q « A, f) is a pair I = (D, h) where D is a nonempty set, the database of Q, and h is a mapping assigning to each pEP a predicate h(p)  ...  On the other hand it can be shown (Trum, The definition of execution under an interpretation I = (D, h) must be modified in the obvious way so that the meanings of the new predicates and actions are  ...

1982 Mathematical Reviews  
The cases of total and partial program correctness are treated in more detail, both for deterministic and nondeterministic programs.  ...  Every nondeterministic recursive program can be obtained from such schemes by interpreting the constant function symbols.  ... 

"During" cannot be expressed by "after"

Paweł Urzyczyn
1986 Journal of computer and system sciences (Print)  
From this we deduce that array assignments add to the power of logics based on nondeterministic effective tree-schemes and that rich tests add to the power of logics based on flowcharts.  ...  The proof of the main theorem is based on a result of Furst, Saxe, and Sipser (in "Proc. 22nd Found. of Comput. Sci.," 1981).  ...  Kfoury and two anonymous referees for their critical comments.  ...

Formal language theory and theoretical computer science [chapter]

Ronald V. Book
1975 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Abstraction for the sake of abstraction and beauty is one of the goals of modern pure mathematics [ i].  ...  In Part I I I discuss several problem areas where formal language theory may find interesting and fruitful application.  ...  search problems, and nondeterministic algorithms provide an efficient specification for algorithms which deterministically simulate nondeterministic processes.  ...

R.B. Szlavik

Functional behavior of nondeterministic and concurrent programs

Michael G. Main, David B. Benson
1984 Information and Control  
This notion of functional behavior can be extended to nondeterministic and concurrent programs using techniques from linear algebra.  ...  It is shown that in this model, free interpretations (essentially Herbrand universes) do not generally exist.  ...  Main has been partially supported by a grant from the University of Colorado Council on Research and Creative Work.
