Abstract:Nowadays, there is an intense research activity in designing systems that
operate in real life, physical environments. This research is spanned by
various areas in computer science and engineering: embedded systems,
reactive systems, wireless communications, hybrid systems, stochastic
processes, etc. A severe limitation in the development of these systems is
due to the mathematical foundation and complexity of the physical
environment. Often, the physical environment is continuous and uncertain,
and modelled in terms of continuous stochastic processes. These mathematics
are quite different from the underlying mathematics of discrete controllers
based on logic and algebra. In this paper, we propose a specification
formalism called stochastic functional logic based on algebraic framework.
This axiomatises and abstracts away advanced structures from functional and
stochastic analysis. The definition of the logic mimics the practice in
applied mathematics. This logic is integrated with a probabilistic process
algebra to provide a specification framework for embedded systems. The
integration mechanism is based on partial ordered sets. Moreover, we
construct an energy integral to every stochastic functional logic
specification. In this way, we combine the power of formal specification and
stochastic analysis for the software development of embedded systems.
