Abstract: This paper presents a non-interleaving denotational semantics for the?-calculus. The basic idea is to define a notion of test where the outcome isnot only whether a given process passes a given test, but also in how manydifferent ways it can pass it. More abstractly, the set of possible outcomesfor tests forms a semiring, and the set of process interpretations appears as amodule over this semiring, in which basic syntactic constructs are affineoperators. This notion of test leads to a trace semantics in which traces arepartial orders, in the style of Mazurkiewicz traces, extended with readinessinformation. Our construction has standard may- and must-testing as specialcases.
