Title:The Rewriting Logic Semantics Project
Author(s):Meseguer, José; Rosu, Grigore
Subject(s):rewriting logic
computer science
Abstract:Rewriting logic is a flexible and expressive logical framework that unifies denotational semantics and SOS in a novel way, avoiding their respective limitations and allowing very succinct semantic definitions. The fact that a rewrite theory's axioms include both equations and rewrite rules provides a very useful ``abstraction knob'' to find the right balance between abstraction and observability in semantic definitions. Such semantic definitions are directly executable as interpreters in a rewriting logic language such as Maude, whose generic formal tools can be used to endow those interpreters with powerful program analysis capabilities.
