Languages and Tools for Hybrid Systems Design is a survey of languages and tools for the design and verification of hybrid systems. The book reviews and compares hybrid system tools by highlighting their differences in terms of their underlying semantics, expressive power and mathematical mechanisms. The review concludes with a comparative summary, which suggests the need for a unifying approach to hybrid systems design. As a step in this direction, the case is made for a semantic-aware interchange format, which would enable the use of joint techniques, make a formal comparison between different approaches possible, and facilitate exporting and importing design representations. Languages and Tools for Hybrid Systems Design is also intended to equip researchers, application developers and managers with key references and resource material for the successful development of hybrid systems.
