For aspect-oriented modular reconfigurable computing, we specify a notion of "aspect" in the context of modular reconfigurable computing systems. In our formal approach, an aspect is determined as a coalgebraic transformation on modular reconfigurable computing systems. Then, based on this fundamental concept of aspect, inheritance and super- imposition properties of aspects are studied. Specifically, the inheritance property is shown to be a bisimulation relation and the superimposition property is determined in the context of coalgebraic reconfiguration. Moreover, we also justify that our approach is sufficiently expressive to combine aspect-orientation and modular reconfigurable computing.
