Streaming workflow transformation

This dissertation offers 1. a formal model for streaming workflows tailored for transformation and 2. transformation rules for streaming workflows described based on that formal model. The validity of the transformation rules is shown by formally proofing equivalence. The validity of the formal model is exhibited by the fact that valid transformation rules could be defined. Transformation of streaming workflows is the 1st step towards automatic optimization of streaming workflows. By offering a formal model and transformation rules, this dissertation reveals that it is feasible to build a self-optimizing Streaming Workflow System…..
