Epistemic Strategies and Games on Concurrent Processes


We develop a game semantics for process algebra with two interacting agents. The purpose of our semantics is to make manifest the role of knowledge and information ow in the interactions between agents and to control the information available to interacting agents. We dene games and strategies on process algebras, so that two agents interacting according to their strategies determine the execution of the process, re- placing the traditional scheduler. We show that dierent restrictions on strategies represent dierent amounts of information being available to a scheduler. We also show that a certain class of strategies corresponds to the syntactic schedulers of Chatzikokolakis and Palamidessi, which were developed to overcome problems with traditional schedulers mod- elling interaction. The restrictions on these strategies have an explicit epistemic avour.
