Insup Lee, Anna Philippou, and Oleg Sokolsky, "Formal Modeling and Analysis of Power-Aware Real-Time Systems", . December 2001.
The paper describes a unified formal framework for designing and reasoning about power-constrained, timed systems. The framework is based on process algebra, a formalism which has been developed to describe and analyze communicating, concurrent systems. The proposed extension allows the modeling of probilistic resource failures and power consumption by resources within the same formalism. Thus, it is possible to study several alternative power-consumption behaviors and tradeoffs in their timing and other characteristics. This paper describes the modeling and analysis techniques, and illustrates them with examples, including a power-aware ad-hoc network protocol.
