Re: [tlaplus] Re: Meaning of "equivalence" of specifications

Saying that spec A implies spec B  (so A implements B) is saying that if you take the set of behaviours generated by A, and project those behaviours to a subset of A's variables (optionally with consistent renaming), then it is the same set of behaviours as generated by B. So if you have A => B and B => A, then A and B are equivalent, because if two sets are subsets of each other then they must be equivalent - so the behaviors of A and B are equivalent when looking at all variables.

Is equivalence the same as Bisimulation [0]?
