A brief introduction to structured modelling with Core Gnosis

Gnosis is a mathematical, discrete process simulation language and tool that we have developed to help model, explore and understand systems security issues. Core Gnosis is a subset which illustrates the underlying principles of the full language.

A Discipline of Mathematical Systems Modeling – Matthew Collinson (University of Aberdeen), Brian Monahan (HP Labs), David Pym (University of Aberdeen)

Our approach, described in this monograph, is to combine the compositionality of formal specification – using techniques from algebra, computation theory, logic, and probability theory – with the control of level of abstraction afforded by the classical mathematical modelling method.
