Analyzing the dynamics of a Z specification.

(138 - 149).
We present a method for analyzing the dynamics of a Z document describing a non-sequential system. First a formal operational semantics based on the chemical metaphor is given to Z. Then, some Unity-like temporal logic constructs are defined on such a formal operational semantics in order to allow the specification and analysis of dynamic and temporal properties of concurrent systems, such as safety and liveness properties.
