(LaTeX) Abstract:

One way to model the execution state of an imperative program is as
a many sorted algebra. Program variables are modeled by functions
and their types by sorts. The execution of a program is modeled by a
relation between the states of the program (algebras) before and after
the execution of the program. There are several methods to specify such
relations between algebras. One method is to use specifications in the
style of Z, VDM-SL or Larch. Specifications in Z of relations between
states are first order formulas over the value of the variables comprising
the state before and after an operation. In this paper we shall define an
institution for the specification of relations between structures of some
base institution (eg.\ the institution of equational logic or first order predicate logic).
Sets of structures over a common signature, abstract datatypes, in this institution
denote relations between structures of the base institution. This makes it
possible to apply a rich repertoire of already existent techniques for specifying
abstract datatypes, which can be found for example in the work of Goguen
and Burstall, Sannella, Wirsing and Tarlecki, Ehrig, Pepper and Orejas and
others, to the specification of relations. This paper tries to narrow the gap between
algebraic specification languages like Clear, ASL or Act-One and
model theoretic based specification languages like Z, VDM-SL or the
Larch Interface language.
