Abstract:We present a new method for fighting the state space explosion of process algebraic specifications, by performing static analysis on an intermediate format: linear process equations (LPEs). Our method consists of two steps: (1) we reconstruct the LPE's control flow, detecting control flow parameters that were introduced by linearisation as well as those already encoded in the original specification; (2) we reset parameters found to be irrelevant based on data flow analysis techniques similar to traditional liveness analysis, modified to take into account the parallel nature of the specifications. Our transformation is correct with respect to strong bisimilarity, and never increases the state space. Case studies show that impressive reductions occur in practice, which could not be obtained automatically without reconstructing the control flow.
