This book studies the relationship between automata and monadic second-order logic, focusing on classes of automata that describe the concurrent behavior of distributed systems. It provides a unifying theory of communicating automata and their logical properties. Based on Hanf's Theorem and Thomas's graph acceptors, it develops a result that allows characterization of many popular models of distributed computation in terms of the existential fragment of monadic second-order logic.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The book deals with one essential problem of communication systems, namely formal description of protocols and systems and verification of correctness of their operation. ... The book, due to clear definitions, well proved theorems and a number of illustrative examples, can be advised as a valuable source of knowledge for graduate mathematics and computer science students." (Jozef Wozniak, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1107 (9), 2007)
