Generic composition.

Chen, Y. (2002) 'Generic composition.', Formal aspects of computing., 14 (2). pp. 108-122.


This paper presents a technique called {\em generic composition} to provide a uniform basis for modal operators, sequential composition, different kinds of parallel compositions and various healthiness conditions appearing in a variety of semantic theories. The weak inverse of generic composition is defined. A completeness theorem shows that any predicate can be written in terms of generic composition and its weak inverse. A number of algebraic laws that support reasoning are derived.
