We present an institution of observational logic suited for statebased systems specifications. The institution is based on the notion of an observational signature (which incorporates the declaration of a distinguished set of observers) and on observational algebras whose operations are required to be compatible with the indistinguishability relation determined by the given observers. In particular, we introduce a homomorphism concept for observational algebras which adequately expresses observational relationships between algebras. Then we consider a flexible notion of observational signature morphism which guarantees the satisfaction condition of institutions w.r.t. observational satisfaction of arbitrary firstorder sentences. From the proof theoretical point of view we construct a sound and complete proof system for the observational consequence relation. Then we consider structured observational specifications and we provide a sound and complete proof system for such specifications by using a general, institutionindependent result of [6].

. We present an institution of observational logic which generalizes earlier approaches to observational systems specification in various ways. First, we introduce a notion of an observational signature which incorporates the declaration of a distinguished set of observers. Then, we define observational algebras whose operations are required to be compatible with the indistinguishability relation determined by the observers of an observational signature. In particular, we introduce a homomorphism concept for observational algebras which adequately expresses observational relationships between algebras.
