Process Algebra Modelling Styles for Biomolecular Processes

Muffy Calder, Jane Hillston

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)


We investigate how biomolecular processes are modelled in process algebras, focussing on chemical reactions. We consider various modelling styles and how design decisions made in the definition of the process algebra have an impact on how a modelling style can be applied. Our goal is to highlight the often implicit choices that modellers make in choosing a formalism, and illustrate, through the use of examples, how this can affect expressability as well as the type and complexity of the analysis that can be performed.
