Abstract

We present formal techniques for improving the performance of modular communication systems. For common sequences of operations we identify a fast-path through a stack of communication protocols and reconfigure the system's code accordingly. Our techniques are implemented by tactics and theorems of the NuPRL proof development system and have been used successfully for the reconfiguration of application systems built with the Ensemble group communication toolkit.
