Formal methods have been established as the rigorous engineering methodology for the system development. Applying formal methods to a large and complex system development often requires the modelling of different aspects of such a system. For instance, complex systems (such as integrated avionics systems, engine control software) can involve functional and timing requirements that must be eventually implemented as executing code on a communicating distributed topology. This book contains the papers presented at the First International Workshop on Integrated Formal Methods, held at the University of York in June 1999. The conference provided a forum for the discussion of theoretical aspects of combing behavioural and state-based formalisms and practical solutions to the industrial problems of this approach.A CDFD not only describes how components are statically connected, but also how they dynamically interact with data flows. For example, Figure 2(a) shows a classical DFD that describes a connection between the processes Hotel andanbsp;...
