- Course objectives
- At the end of the course students should be able to understand and to work with the basic techniques used for modelling, analysis and verification of concurrent processes. Students should be able make deductions based on acquired knowledge on actual topics and results of concurrent processes and their formal verification.
- Processes, labelled transition systems and their (finite) specifications. Operational semantics. Caucal a Mayr hierarchies.
- Selected sematic equivalencies (and preorders) for processes and their relationships (linear time - branching time spectrum).
- Boundaries of algorithmic verification (equivalence checking) -- undecidability, decidability and complexity of some semantic equivalencies on selected classes of infinite state processes.

- Teaching methods
- This seminar is open to active participants only. Every participant is expected to study and give a talk on one or two journal/conference papers or subchapter of a book/monograph. These will be specified by a person in charge of running seminar. Each talk will be followed by class discussion, The number of participants is limited.
