Note on the Tableau Technique for Commutative Transition Systems

Jirí Srba

December 2001


We define a class of transition systems called effective commutative transition systems (ECTS) and show, by generalising a tableau-based proof for BPP, that bisimilarity between any two states of such a transition system is decidable. It gives a general technique for extending decidability borders of strong bisimilarity for a wide class of infinite-state transition systems. This is demonstrated for several process formalisms, namely BPP process algebra, lossy BPP processes, BPP systems with interrupt and timed-arc BPP nets
