Motivated by recent work on the derivation of labelled transitions and bisimulation congruences from unlabelled reaction rules, we show how to solve this problem in the DPO (doublepushout) approach to graph rewriting. Unlike in previous approaches, we consider graphs as objects, instead of arrows, of the category under consideration. This allows us to present a very simple way of deriving labelled transitions (called rewriting steps with borrowed context) which smoothly integrates with the DPO approach, has a very constructive nature and requires only a minimum of category theory. The core part of this paper is the proof sketch that the bisimilarity based on rewriting with borrowed contexts is a congruence relation.
Cartesian Closed Double Categories, their LambdaNotation, and the PiCalculus

We introduce the notion of cartesian closed double category to provide mobile calculi for communicating systems with specific semantic models: One dimension is dedicated to compose systems and the other to compose their computations and their observations. Also, inspired by the connection between simply typed calculus and cartesian closed categories, we define a new typed framework, called double notation, which is able to express the abstraction /application and pairing/projection operations in all dimensions. In this development, we take the categorical presentation as a guidance in the interpretation of the formalism. A case study of the ßcalculus, where the double  notation straightforwardly handles name passing and creation, concludes the presentation.
A General Framework for Types in Graph Rewriting

. A general framework for typing graph rewriting systems is presented: the idea is to statically derive a type graph from a given graph. In contrast to the original graph, the type graph is invariant under reduction, but still contains meaningful behaviour information. We present conditions, a type system for graph rewriting should satisfy, and a methodology for proving these conditions. In two case studies it is shown how to incorporate existing type systems (for the polyadic  calculus and for a concurrent objectoriented calculus) into the general framework. 1 Introduction In the past, many formalisms for the specication of concurrent and distributed systems have emerged. Some of them are aimed at providing an encompassing theory: a very general framework in which to describe and reason about interconnected processes. Examples are action calculi [18], rewriting logic [16] and graph rewriting [3] (for a comparison see [4]). They all contain a method of building terms (or ...

Abstract. This paper is an informal summary of different encoding techniques from process calculi and distributed formalisms to graphic frameworks. The survey includes the use of solo diagrams, term graphs, synchronized hyperedge replacement systems, bigraphs, tile models and interactive systems, all presented at the Dagstuhl Seminar 04241. The common theme of all techniques recalled here is having a graphic presentation that, at the same time, gives both an intuitive visual rendering (of processes, states, etc.) and a rigorous mathematical framework. 1
Four Equivalent Equivalences of Reductions
, 2002
"... Two coinitial reductions in a term rewriting system are said to be equivalent if they perform the same steps, albeit maybe in a di#erent order. We present four characterisations of such a notion of equivalence, based on permutation, standardisation, labelling and projection, respectively. We prove ..."

Two coinitial reductions in a term rewriting system are said to be equivalent if they perform the same steps, albeit maybe in a di#erent order. We present four characterisations of such a notion of equivalence, based on permutation, standardisation, labelling and projection, respectively. We prove that the characterisations all yield the same notion of equivalence, for the class of firstorder leftlinear term rewriting systems. A crucial role in our development is played by the notion of a proof term. 1

Abstract. In the area of componentbased software architectures, the term connector has been coined to denote an entity (e.g. the communication network, middleware or infrastructure) that regulate the interaction of independent components. Hence, a rigorous mathematical foundation for connectors is crucial for the study of coordinated systems. In recent years, many different mathematical frameworks have been proposed to specify, design, analyse, compare, prototype and implement connectors rigorously. In this paper, we overview the main features of three notable frameworks and discuss their similarities, differences, mutual embedding and possible enhancements. First, we show that Sobocinski’s nets with boundaries are as expressive as Sifakis et al.’s BI(P), the BIP component framework without priorities. Second, we provide a basic algebra of connectors for BI(P) by exploiting Montanari et al.’s tile model and a recent correspondence result with nets with boundaries. Finally, we exploit the tile model as a unifying framework to compare BI(P) with other models of connectors and to propose suitable enhancements of BI(P). 1
