 +====== Syntax and Consistent Equation Semantics of Hybrid Chi ======
 +//D.A. van Beek, K.L. Man, M.A. Reniers, J.E. Rooda, R.R.H. Schiffelers//​
 +The hybrid Chi formalism integrates concepts from dynamics and control theory with concepts from computer science, in particular from process algebra and hybrid automata. It integrates ease of modeling with a straightforward,​ structured operational semantics. Its `consistent equation semantics'​ enforces state changes to be consistent with invariants as in most hybrid automata. Ease of modeling is ensured by means of the following concepts: 1) different classes of variables: discrete and continuous, of subclass jumping or non-jumping,​ and algebraic; 2) strong time determinism of alternative composition in combination with delayable guards; 3) integration of urgent and non-urgent actions; 4) differential algebraic equations as a process term as in mathematics;​ 5) steady-state initialization;​ and 6) several user-friendly modeling extensions. Furthermore,​ the Chi language incorporates several concepts for complex system specification:​ 1) process terms for scoping that integrate abstraction,​ local variables, local channels and recursion definitions;​ 2) process definition and instantiation that enable process re-use, encapsulation,​ hierarchical and/or modular composition of processes; and 3) different interaction mechanisms: handshake synchronization and synchronous communication for discrete-event processes that do not share variables, and shared variables for continuous-time processes. The syntax and semantics are illustrated using many different examples. Furthermore,​ general translations from hybrid automata and PWA systems to Chi are given.
