Developing tool support for discrete state based modelling and analysis

Ms Hanadi Alkhudhayr

Jason Steggles

Investigating the compositional construction and analysis of discrete state based models for biological applications

Mr Robert T. Bickerton

Evgenios Kakariadis

We study operator algebras that arise naturally from the action of semigroup action on a (perhaps) non-commutative state space. The aim is to relate properties of the ...
