The integrated modelling and analysis of functional and non-functional aspects of system behaviour is one of the important challenges in the field of formal methods today. Our ever-increasing dependence upon of all sorts of critical applications of networked and/or embedded systems, often including sophisticated multi-media features, lends this intellectual challenge also great practical relevance. In this talk we will report on work in this area in the past decade or so on the use of techniques from so-called formal methods in the area of performance modelling and analysis, and in particular on the theory of stochastic process algebra (SPA) and its application.
