Abstract

We define a mobile system as a collection of independently executing components which may migrate through some (logical or physical) space during the course of the computation, with the pattern of connectivity among components changing as they move in and out of proximity. This paper presents Mobile UNITY, a modular notation for expressing mobile computations and a logic for reasoning about their temporal properties.
