+ | The hybrid Chi formalism integrates concepts from dynamics and control theory with concepts from computer science, in particular from process algebra and hybrid automata. It integrates ease of modeling with a straightforward, structured operational semantics. Its `consistent equation semantics' enforces state changes to be consistent with invariants as in most hybrid automata. Ease of modeling is ensured by means of the following concepts: 1) different classes of variables: discrete and continuous, of subclass jumping or non-jumping, and algebraic; 2) strong time determinism of alternative composition in combination with delayable guards; 3) integration of urgent and non-urgent actions; 4) differential algebraic equations as a process term as in mathematics; 5) steady-state initialization; and 6) several user-friendly modeling extensions. Furthermore, the Chi language incorporates several concepts for complex system specification: 1) process terms for scoping that integrate abstraction, local variables, local channels and recursion definitions; 2) process definition and instantiation that enable process re-use, encapsulation, hierarchical and/or modular composition of processes; and 3) different interaction mechanisms: handshake synchronization and synchronous communication for discrete-event processes that do not share variables, and shared variables for continuous-time processes. The syntax and semantics are illustrated using many different examples. Furthermore, general translations from hybrid automata and PWA systems to Chi are given. | ||
