The papers during this quantity have been awarded on the First overseas Workshop on Larch, held at MIT Endicott condo close to Boston on 13-15 July 1992. Larch is a relatives of formal specification languages and instruments, and this workshop used to be a discussion board in case you have designed the Larch languages, outfitted software aid for them, rather the Larch Prover, and used them to specify and cause approximately software program and structures. The Larch venture began in 1980, led by means of John Guttag at MIT and James Horning, then at Xerox/Palo Alto examine heart and now at electronic gear Corporation/Systems study heart (DEC/SRC). significant purposes have incorporated VLSI circuit synthesis, scientific machine communications, compiler improvement and concurrent platforms in line with Lamport's TLA, in addition to a number of functions to classical theorem proving and algebraic specification. Larch helps a two-tiered method of specifying software program and modules. One tier of a specification is wrillen within the Larch Shared Language (LSL). An LSL specification describes mathematical abstractions reminiscent of units, family members, and algebras; its semantics is outlined when it comes to first-order theories. the second one tier is written in a Larch interface language, one designed for a selected programming language. An interface specification describes the consequences of person modules, e.g. kingdom adjustments, source allocation, and exceptions; its semantics is outlined by way of first-order predicates over states, the place nation is outlined when it comes to the programming language's proposal of nation. hence, LSL is programming language self sufficient; a Larch interface language is programming language dependent.
