Dinh, Thang N. (ed.) et al., Computing and combinatorics. 22nd international conference, COCOON 2016, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, August 2–4, 2016. Proceedings. Cham: Springer. Lect. Notes Comput. Sci. 9797, 599-610 (2016).
Summary: Modeling, Simulation and Verification Language (MSVL) is a useful formalism for specification and verification of concurrent systems. To make it more practical and easy to use, we extend MSVL with the technique of semaphore. To do so, the mechanism of MSVL function calls is deeply analyzed. Further, the semaphore type is defined. Moreover, operations over semaphore are formalized. Finally, an example is given to illustrate how to use semaphore to solve the mutual exclusion problem.
