Example text

Pre-emption means that values which were scheduled on the driver for time points ≥ currTime + time1 are deleted; it can be defined explicitly by a function |< , which for given driver and time t retains precisely the driver elements (’transactions’) with time component < t. This results in the TRANSPORT driver update by driver (P , S ) | and timei = currTime + timei , describing that after pre-emption of the current driver the waveform constituted by the schedule for the new values is appended.

For example, the complex signal assignment S ← INERTIAL . . with inertial delay in the hardware design language VHDL’93 can be defined operationally by the simple rule below taken from [111, Sect. 2], using separately defined explicit as well as recursive external functions. The meaning of the inertial delay instruction S ← INERTIAL exp1 AFTER time1 , . . , expn AFTER timen extends the simpler TRANSPORT delay which preemptively schedules for signal S on the driver (P , S ) of process P each value val (expi ) for time currTime + timei .

The dynamic functions are further divided into four subclasses. e. functions f which appear in at least one rule of M as the leftmost function (namely in an update f (s) := t for some s, t) and are not updatable by the environment (or more generally by another agent in the case of a multi-agent machine). These functions are the ones which constitute the internally controlled part of the dynamic state of M . Monitored functions, also called in functions, are dynamic functions which are read but not updated by M and directly updatable only by the environment (or more generally by other agents).
