The Mobility Workbench: A Tool for the Pi-Calculus

Björn Victor and Faron Moller


In this paper we describe the first prototype version of the Mobility Workbench (MWB), an automated tool for manipulating and analyzing mobile concurrent systems (those with evolving connectivity structures) described in the pi-calculus. The main feature of this version of the MWB is checking open bisimulation equivalences. We illustrate the MWB with an example automated analysis of a handover protocol for a mobile telephone system.
