Spécifications et développements formels : Etude des aspects compositionnels dans la méthode B

Abstract : The B-method has been successfully used in applications like railway transports where, starting from specifications, secure code is required. These applications become possible because of the facility to build structured developments inside the B-method. The method supplies a notion of modules which may be composed, validated and developed separately. The basic principle is to combine specifications and developments in such a way that already done proofs remain valid. The validity of this choice relays on a set of syntactic and architectural restrictions which make transparent, for B practitioners, the complexity of the composition principle. Following our previous works, the aim of this thesis is to develop the theoretical framework which underlies the correctness of the B composition principle. This paper formally exhibits how composition works, validates its principle and shows the consequence of the chosen restrictions. This study applies to others approachs, as object approach in which notion of class invariant and refinement are very close to the one of the B-method.
