Compiling concurrency correctly: cutting out the middle man
Hu, Liyang and Hutton, Graham (2010) Compiling concurrency correctly: cutting out the middle man. In: Symposium on Trends in Functional Programming (10th), 2-4 June 2009, Komárno, Slovakia.
The standard approach to proving compiler correctness for concurrent languages requires the use of multiple translations into an intermediate process calculus. We present a simpler approach that avoids the need for such an intermediate language, using a new method that allows us to directly establish a bisimulation between the source and target languages. We illustrate the technique on two small languages, using the Agda system to present and formally verify our compiler correctness proofs.
