Semantical Correctness of Simulation-to-Animation Model and Rule Transformation

Claudia Ermel, Hartmut Ehrig, Karsten Ehrig


In the framework of graph transformation, simulation rules are well-known to define the operational behavior of visual models.
Moreover, it has been shown already how to construct animation rules in a domain specific layout from simulation rules.
An important requirement of this construction is the semantical correctness which has not yet been considered.
In this paper we give a precise definition for simulation-to-animation (S2A) model and rule transformations.
Our main results show under which conditions semantical correctness can be obtained.
The results are applied to analyze the S2A transformation of a Radio Clock model.

Keywords: graph transformation, model and rule transformation, semantical correctness, simulation, animation
