Abstract:

Stein Krogdahl has given an interesting demonstration of the partial correctness of a protocol skeleton, by which the validity of the essential aspects of a large variety of data transmission schemes can be demonstrated. The purpose of this note is to present a simpler way to obtain the same results, by first establishing the validity of a less efficient skeleton and then optimizing the algorithms. The present approach, which was introduced for a particular protocol by N. V. Stenning, also solves a wider class of problems that do not require first-in-first-out transmissions. Author
