The Kell calculus: operational semantics and type system

P. Bidinger and J.B. Stefani


This paper presents the Kell calculus, a new distributed process calculus that retains the original insights of the Seal calculus (local actions, process replication) and of the M-calculus (higher-order processes and programmable membranes), although in a much simpler setting than the latter. The calculus is equipped with a type system that enforces a unicity property for location names that is crucial for the efficient implementation of the calculus.
