Composing Model-Based Analysis Tools (Dagstuhl Seminar 19481)

Authors: Francisco Durán, Robert Heinrich, Diego Pérez-Palacín, Carolyn L. Talcott, and Steffen Zschaler

Published in: Dagstuhl Reports, Volume 9, Issue 11 (2020)


Abstract
This report documents the program and the outcomes of the Dagstuhl Seminar 19481 "Composing Model-Based Analysis Tools". The key objective of the seminar was to provide more flexibility in model-driven engineering by bringing together representatives from industry and researchers in the formal methods and software engineering communities to establishing the foundations for a common understanding on the modularity and composition of modeling languages and model-based analyses.

DynSem: A DSL for Dynamic Semantics Specification

Authors: Vlad Vergu, Pierre Neron, and Eelco Visser

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 36, 26th International Conference on Rewriting Techniques and Applications (RTA 2015)


Abstract
The formal semantics of a programming language and its implementation are typically separately defined, with the risk of divergence such that properties of the formal semantics are not properties of the implementation. In this paper, we present DynSem, a domain-specific language for the specification of the dynamic semantics of programming languages that aims at supporting both formal reasoning and efficient interpretation. DynSem supports the specification of the operational semantics of a language by means of statically typed conditional term reduction rules. DynSem supports concise specification of reduction rules by providing implicit build and match coercions based on reduction arrows and implicit term constructors. DynSem supports modular specification by adopting implicit propagation of semantic components from I-MSOS, which allows omitting propagation of components such as environments and stores from rules that do not affect those. DynSem supports the declaration of native operators for delegation of aspects of the semantics to an external definition or implementation. DynSem supports the definition of auxiliary meta-functions, which can be expressed using regular reduction rules and are subject to semantic component propagation. DynSem specifications are executable through automatic generation of a Java-based AST interpreter.

Practical Techniques for Language Design and Prototyping

Authors: Mark-Oliver Stehr and Carolyn Talcott L.

Published in: Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 5081, Foundations of Global Computing (2006)


Abstract
Global computing involves the interplay of a vast variety of languages, but practially useful foundations for language specification and prototyping at the semantic level are lacking. In this talk we present a systematic approach consisting of three techniques: 1. A generic calculus of explicit substitutions with names (called CINNI) that allows us give a first-order representation of syntax to uniformly deal with all binding aspects. 2. An executable representation of Felleisen-style operational semantics in terms of first-order rewrite rules. 3. A logical framework, namely rewriting logic, that allows us to express (1) and (2) and, in addition, language aspects such as concurrency and non-determinism. We illustrate the use of these techniques in two applications: 1. A formal specification and analysis of PLAN, a Packet Language for Active Networks, that has been developed in the Switchware project at UPenn. This work was conducted in the scope of the DARPA Active Network Program. 2. The development of CIAO, a Calculus of Imperative Active Objects, a core language for concurrent object-oriented programming. It is especially designed to allow a the representation of practically relevant sublanguages of common object-oriented languages such as Java, C#, and C++. This second application is subject of ongoing work.
