Abstract
We present a method for formalising the behaviour
of simple deterministic devices and protocols in a way
that makes explicit the causal dependencies amongst
the component elements, thereby allowing true causal
(as opposed to purely temporal) reasoning. Our inten-
tion is to handle such systems effectively in the sim-
plest possible way, without invoking additional prob-
lematic considerations (concerning, for example, non-
monotonicity) that may be necessary for modelling a
