Event-B Indexers

From Event-B
Jump to: navigation, search

Purpose

Event-B indexers populate the index repository. Currently, indexers are implemented for the following files :

  • machine (.bum)
  • context (.buc)


Event-B Occurrence Kinds

So far, the following occurrence kinds have been defined :

  • DECLARATION : when a variable, a carrier set, ..., is declared
  • REFERENCE : when a variable, a carrier set, ..., is referenced (but not modified)
  • MODIFICATION : when a variable is modified (e.g., occurs in the left-hand side of an event action)
  • REDECLARATION : when a variable, parameter or event is redeclared (refined).

Please notice the distinction between the index repository notion of declaration (IDeclaration) and the Event-B occurrence kind DECLARATION.

What Is Indexed

Currently, indexed elements are :

  • root elements
  • carrier sets
  • constants
  • variables
  • events
  • parameters

Formulas which cannot be parsed are ignored.

In the descriptions below, the following notation will be used to specify locations :

  • [element] : internal location
  • [element/attribute] : attribute location
  • [element/attribute/begin..end] : attribute substring location

Context Indexer

Dependencies

  • extended contexts

Declarations

  • context root
  • carrier sets
  • constants

Occurrences

  • DECLARATION of context root [root] (occurrence in root itself)
  • DECLARATION of carrier sets [CarrierSet/Identifier]
  • DECLARATION of constants [Constant/Identifier]
  • REFERENCE of root elements in extends [Extends/Target]
  • REFERENCE of elements in axioms [Axiom/Predicate/b..e]

Example:

 Ctx
 Sets
   S
 Constants
   C
 Axioms
   axm1 : C ∈ S

We will end up with the following occurrences :

 S :
   DECLARATION in [S/Identifier]
   REFERENCE in [axm1/Predicate/4..5]
 C :
   DECLARATION in [C/Identifer]
   REFERENCE in [axm1/Predicate/0..1]

Exports

  • context root
  • imported and declared carrier sets
  • imported and declared constants

Machine Indexer

Dependencies

  • refined machines
  • seen contexts

Declarations

  • machine root
  • variables
  • events
  • parameters

Occurrences

  • DECLARATION of machine root [root] (occurrence in root itself)
  • DECLARATION of (local) variables [Variable/Identifier]
  • DECLARATION of (local) events [Event/Label]
  • DECLARATION of (local) parameters [Parameter/Identifier]
  • REDECLARATION of abstract variables in the local variables that redeclare them [Variable/Identifier]
  • REDECLARATION of abstract events in the local events that refine them [Event/RefinesEvent/Target]
  • REDECLARATION of abstract parameters in the local parameters that redeclare them [Parameter/Identifier]
  • REFERENCE of root elements in refines [Refines/Target]
  • REFERENCE of root elements in sees [Sees/Target]
  • REFERENCE of abstract parameters or variables in witnesses [Witness/Label]
  • REFERENCE of elements in invariants [Invariant/Predicate/b..e]
  • REFERENCE of elements in variants [Variant/Expression/b..e]
  • REFERENCE of elements in guards [Guard/Predicate/b..e]
  • REFERENCE of elements in witnesses [Witness/Predicate/b..e]
  • REFERENCE of non assigned elements in actions [Action/Assignment/b..e]
  • MODIFICATION of assigned elements in actions [Action/Assignment/b..e]

Example :

 M1
 VARIABLES
   var1
 INVARIANTS
   inv1 : var1 > 0
 EVENTS
   INITIALISATION
     THEN
       act1 : var1 := 1

After indexing M1, we will have the following occurrences:

 M1.var1 :
   DECLARATION in [M1.var1/Identifier]
   REFERENCE in [M1.inv1/Predicate/0..4]
   MODIFICATION in [M1.act1/Assignment/0..4]
 M1.INITIALISATION :
   DECLARATION in [M1.INITIALISATION/Label]

Then, if we add another machine

 M2
 REFINES
   M1
 VARIABLES
   var1
 EVENTS
   INITIALISATION
     THEN
       act1 : var1 := 1

we will add the following occurrences :

 M1.var1 :
   REDECLARATION in [M2.var1/Identifier]
 M2.var1 :
   DECLARATION in [M2.var1/Identifier]
   MODIFICATION in [M2.act1/Assignment/0..4]
 M2.INITIALISATION :
   DECLARATION in [M2.INITIALISATION/Label]

Exports

  • machine root
  • imported carrier sets
  • imported constants
  • local variables
  • local events
  • local parameters

Propagation

Propagators are defined for :

  • events (EventPropagator) to propagate through refines
  • parameters (IdentifierPropagator) to propagate through redeclaration
  • variables (IdentifierPropagator as well) to propagate through redeclaration

In the above example with machines M1 and M2, after both files have been indexed, we can query occurrences of M1.var1.

With no propagator, the result would be :

 M1.var1 :
   DECLARATION in [M1.var1/Identifier]
   REFERENCE in [M1.inv1/Predicate/0..4]
   MODIFICATION in [M1.act1/Assignment/0..4]
   REDECLARATION in [M2.var1/Identifier]

Using the IdentifierPropagator, the result becomes :

 M1.var1 (propagated) :
   DECLARATION in [M1.var1/Identfiier]
   REFERENCE in [M1.inv1/Predicate/0..4]
   MODIFICATION in [M1.act1/Assignment/0..4]
   REDECLARATION in [M2.var1/Identifier]
   DECLARATION in [M2.var1/Identifier]
   MODIFICATION in [M2.act1/Assignment/0..4]
