A promising way of dealing with complex behaviours of networks of communicating processes is to use abstractions. In our previous work, interface abstraction, modelled through a suitable relation, allowed us to interpret the behaviour of an implementation process as that of a specification process, even in the event that their interfaces differ. The proposed relation is compositional, in the sense that a composition of communicating sub-systems may be implemented by connecting their respective implementations. In our previous work, abstraction has been shown to distribute only over network composition, which restricts its usefulness for compositional correctness analysis. In this paper we extend our treatment to other process constructs, known to be useful in the development of complex distributed applications.
