|Abstract:||It is shown how the classical n-body problem in mechanics can be generalised and formalised in LOTOS. A number of variants are produced by instantiation of the specification framework. These include Newton’s cradle, gas motion, the ‘game of life’, an orrery, a space game, an air traffic simulation and a sailing race. It is shown how these are derived from the generic framework using a configuration tool. The resulting LOTOS specifications are simulated automatically to graphically animate the system behaviour.|
