Modeling Context Awareness
Explains context-aware Abstract State Machines (ASMs). It shows how the ASM parameterization mechanism permits a) to gently manage a rather general form of partitioning of states and distributed computations, and b) to effectively separate the descriptions of system and of environment features. Numerous programming patterns, communication patterns, and some common control flow schemes are modeled to illustrate the power of ASM parameterization.
