Abstract
Temporal logic can be used to describe desirable properties of a system in a more abstract, less constructive manner than when using process algebra alone. This is a well researched area for other process algebras, but not so for LOTOS. This paper is an initial attempt to fill that gap by investigating the use of the modal μ-calculus with Basic LOTOS, laying the groundwork for work on Full LOTOS, i.e. including data types, and logic.

Keywords
