Direct Semantics of Extended State Machines

By: Kevin Lano, David Clark


In this paper we present semantic profiles for UML 2 state machines, which are based directly upon the structure of a state machine model, without requiring flattening or other transformations on these models. The approach addresses many of the semantic problems identified for state machines, and provides a basis for semantic analysis and proof of behavioural compatibility between state machines.
