Hi,

Just a short comment this time :-)

For example, 
http://www.dcs.shef.ac.uk/~ajc/dfa/
or a much heavier one at
http://www4.informatik.tu-muenchen.de/reports/TUM-I9620.html

Search with Google for "flow algebra"

I have to confess it seemed like heavy for me, possibly because I don't have studied the basics of the domain. But it might be what's needed...

regards,
Vlad
