Abstract: A symbolic semantics for Full LOTOS in terms of symbolic transition systems is defined; the semantics extends the (infinitely branching) standard semantics by giving meaning to data parameterised behaviours, and provides a finitely branching representation for behaviours. Symbolic bisimulation is defined and illustrated with reference to a telecomms example.The approach taken follows that applied to message passing CCS in [Hennessy and Lin 95], but differs in several significant aspects, taking account of the particular features of LOTOS: multi-way synchronisation, value negotiation, selection predicates.
