Z test page

This page exercises most of the translations provided by the Z2HTML tool:

Links to more Z examples.

This page looks best when this \power and this X are about the same size: \power X. See these viewing tips.


Most Z symbols are represented by GIF's. Symbols which are not yet supported appear as untranslated LaTeX commands.

Schema boxes

\begin{schema}{ TherapyControl }


The CheckOut operation has two input parameters, the person p? and the document d?.

\begin{schema}{ CheckOut }

\Delta Documents
d? \notin dom checked_out
(d?, p?) \in permission
checked_out' = checked_out \cup {(d?, p?)}

Generic definition box

Q \comp R - Relational composition: Q composed with R
R \circ Q - Backward relational composition, same as Q \comp R

\begin{gendef} [X,Y,Z]

_ \comp _ : (X \rel Y) \cross (Y \rel Z) \fun (X \rel Z)
_ \circ _ : (Y \rel Z) \cross (X \rel Y) \fun (X \rel Z)
\forall Q: X \rel Y; R: Y \rel Z @
    Q \comp R = R \circ Q = {  x: X; y: Y; z: Z | x Q y \land y R z @ x \mapsto z  }

Argue environment

\exists Editor' @ Insert Definition of precondition
    \iff \exists left', right': TEXT | ... @ ... Expand schemas
    \iff \exists left', right': TEXT @ ... \land ... Restricted \exists-quantifier
    \iff pr \land # ((left \cat \langle ch? \rangle) \cat right) \leq maxsize One-point rule
    \iff pr \land # left + # \langle ch? \rangle + # right \leq maxsize # (s \cat t) = # s + #t
    \iff pr \land # left + 1 + # right \leq maxsize # \langle x \rangle = 1
    \iff pr \land # left + # right < maxsize Arithmetic

This completes the calculation. The precondition of Insert is ch? \in printing \land # left + # right < maxsize. When the input is a printing character, the number of characters to the left and right of the cursor must be less than the buffer size.

Other formatting

Here is some emphasized text, boldface text, typewriter font text, and an enclosed mbox. You must ensure that these don't break across a line, {\em like this). Footnotes don't appear at the bottom of the page (Instead footnotes are translated inline, as you see here.). Footnotes are the only one of these environments that can extend across lines.

Quotes are indented.

TherapyControl or any other formal text at the beginning of a line is handled properly. ... That's about all.
