General patterns of interaction in stochastic fusion. (English) Zbl 1334.68147
Summary: A stochastic version of the fusion calculus is presented. The stochastic nature is evident in the labelled transition system providing the operational semantics of stochastic fusion calculus, where labels represent the rates corresponding to exponential distributions. We extend the notion of hyperbisimulation to stochastic fusion calculus, and prove that the stochastic hyperequivalence is a congruence. A complete axiomatic system for the stochastic hyperbisimulation is defined. Some examples inspired by gene regulation illustrate the general patterns of interactions by using stochastic fusion calculus.
