On the Unification of Process Semantics: Observational Semantics [chapter]

David de Frutos Escrig, Carlos Gregorio Rodríguez, Miguel Palomino
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The complexity of parallel systems has produced a large collection of semantics for processes.  ...  In this first part of our study we present the observational semantics, that stresses the differences between the simulation (branching) semantics and the extentional (linear) semantics.  ...  part of our unification work on the semantics for concurrency.  ...

On the Unification of Process Semantics: Logical Semantics

David Romero-Hernández, David de Frutos-Escrig
2011 Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science  
We continue with the task of obtaining a unifying view of process semantics by considering in this case the logical characterization of the semantics.  ...  to develop generic proofs of some general properties of the semantics.  ...  Conclusions and future work We have concluded in this paper the work on unification of all the strong process semantics by considering here the logic approach, while [2, 3] considered the observational  ...

Quantales, observational logic and process semantics

Samson Abramsky, Steven Vickers
1993 Mathematical Structures in Computer Science  
Various notions of observing and testing processes are placed in a uniform algebraic framework in which observations are taken as constituting a quantale.  ...  Considering Cl({[ [p] ]}) as an element of (!D RS )^ $ Q hf , and writing t as in 6.2.2 (ii), we have Cl({[ [p] ]})(a) = 0 5 t(a) ( Cl({[ [p] ]}) c = {=#!  ...  The first author also thanks the Nuffield Foundation for their support in the form of a Science Research Fellowship for 1988-9.

Observational semantics of the Prolog Resolution Box Model [article]

Pierre Deransart, Mireille Ducassé, Gérard Ferrand
2007 arXiv   pre-print
It is a form of declarative specification for the tracers. The trace model introduced here is only one example to illustrate general problems relating to tracers and observing processes.  ...  This paper specifies an observational semantics and gives an original presentation of the Byrd box model.  ...  occur in the observed process.  ...

Observer Bias: An Interaction of Temperament Traits with Biases in the Semantic Perception of Lexical Material

Ira Trofimova, Philip Allen
2014 PLoS ONE  
This article reports on two studies investigating differences between groups contrasted by 12 temperament traits (i.e. by energetic and other capacities, as well as emotionality) in the semantic perception  ...  For the lexical approach to be valid as a method of scientific investigations, such biases should not exist in semantic perception of the verbal material that is used by this approach.  ...  Acknowledgments The author would like to thank the members of the Department of Psychology, McMaster University: Ms.  ...

Remote Sensing Image Interpretation With Semantic Graph-Based Methods: A Survey

Shengtao Sun, Schahram Dustdar, Rajiv Ranjan, Graham Morgan, Yusen Dong, Lizhe Wang
2022 IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing  
In addition, a case study of RS geological interpretation based on the semantic knowledge graph is demonstrated to show the promising capability of intelligent RS image interpretation.  ...  With the significant improvements in Earth observation (EO) technologies, remote sensing (RS) data exhibit the typical characteristics of Big Data.  ...  Semantic Graph-Based RS Image Interpretation Semantic image interpretation can be defined as the semantic extraction and inference process for deriving high-level knowledge from an observed image [82]  ...

Language Semantics [chapter]

Ioannis L. Kotsiopoulos
2003 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
The paper is a response to the call for a common underlying domain theory to address the mismatch between syntax and semantics of enterprise modelling languages.  ...  Semantics of particular modelling languages and architectures can be obtained as specialisations of the general theory. Basic features of CIMOSA are derived as an example.  ...  Both A and n are snapshots on the time axis, where A is termed process part and n observation part. Remark.  ...

Compositional semantics for linguistic formalisms

Shuly Wintner
1999 Proceedings of the 37th annual meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics on Computational Linguistics -  
We study alternative definitions for the semantics of such formalisms, suggesting a denotational semantics that we show to be compositional and fully-abstract.  ...  In what sense is a grammar the union of its rules? This paper adapts the notion of composition, well developed in the context of programming languages, to the domain of linguistic formalisms.  ...  semantics to the set InitG.

Unification-based semantic interpretation

Robert C. Moore
1989 Proceedings of the 27th annual meeting on Association for Computational Linguistics -  
We also sketch a theoretical foundation for unificationbased semantic interpretation, and compare the unification-based approach with more conventional techniques based on the lambda calculus.  ...  We show how unification can be used to specify the semantic interpretation of natural-language expressions, including problematical constructions involving long-distance dependencies.  ...  The work was continued at the SRI Artificial Intelligence Center and the Center for the Study of Language and Information, supported  ...
