The Complexity of Model Checking Mobile Ambients [chapter]

Witold Charatonik, Silvano Dal Zilio, Andrew D. Gordon, Supratik Mukhopadhyay, Jean-Marc Talbot
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We settle the complexity bounds of the model checking problem for the replication-free ambient calculus with public names against the ambient logic without parallel adjunct.  ...  For the complexity upper-bound, we devise a new representation of processes that remains of polynomial size during process execution; this allows us to keep the model checking procedure in polynomial space  ...  Still, given the various possible applications of the logic, it is of interest to analyse the complexity of model checking mobile ambients.  ...

Finite-Control Mobile Ambients [chapter]

Witold Charatonik, Andrew D. Gordon, Jean-Marc Talbot
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This is the first proposal of a model checking algorithm for ambients to deal with recursively-defined, possibly nonterminating, processes.  ...  We define a finite-control fragment of the ambient calculus, a formalism for describing distributed and mobile computations. A series of examples demonstrates the expressiveness of our fragment.  ...  Model Checking Finite-Control Mobile Ambients In this section we show how closed and typable processes can be model checked against formulas of the ambient logic.  ...

Formalising policies of a mLearning system using CCA

Mohammed Al-Sammarraie, François Siewe, Hussein Zedan
2010 Proceedings of the 4th ACM International Workshop on Context-Awareness for Self-Managing Systems - CASEMANS '10  
The Calculus of Context-aware Ambients (CCA in short) has been proposed as a suitable notation for modelling mobile applications that are context-aware.  ...  In particular an important liveness property of the mLearning system is proved using the reduction semantics of CCA.  ...  It is based on the notion of ambient as defined in the calculus of Mobile Ambients (MA for short) [3] and provides primitives for modelling mobility and context-awareness.  ...

Formal specification of an intelligent message notification service in an infostation-based mLearning system using CCA

Mohammed Al-Sammarraie, Francois Siewe, Hussein Zedan
2011 The 2011 International Conference and Workshop on Current Trends in Information Technology (CTIT 11)  
The Calculus of Context-aware Ambients (CCA in short) has been proposed as a notation that is suitable to model mobile applications that are context-aware.  ...  Such a dynamic system must enforce complex policies to cope with mobility and context-awareness.  ...  It is based on the notion of ambient as defined in the calculus of Mobile Ambients (MA for short) [2] and provides primitives for modelling mobility and context-awareness.  ...

Analyzing Isolation in Mobile Systems

Zhong Hong, Jian-Min Jiang, Hongping Shu
2021 Information Technology and Control  
As a safety-critical issue in complex mobile systems, isolation requires two or more mobile objects not to appear in the same place simultaneously.  ...  To ensure such isolation, a scheduling policy is needed to control and coordinate the movement of mobile objects.  ...  The input of the algorithm is the mobile system itself, including the dependency structure model, its initial state S 0 , m mobile objects and n ambients.  ...

A strategy for cooperative reasoning in ubiquitous computing environments

José Viterbo, Markus Endler
2008 Proceedings of the 6th international workshop on Middleware for pervasive and ad-hoc computing - MPAC '08  
Hence, we propose a strategy for cooperative context reasoning of complex situations involving a reasoner for the user side and a reasoner for the ambient side.  ...  In ubiquitous computing systems, heterogeneous applications must be capable of responding to dynamic changes in their environments with minimal human interference and strongly relying on context information  ...  While the first two pieces of information are originated at the mobile device, the latter two pieces are most likely managed by the ambient infrastructure.  ...
