Abstract : We study the semantics and refinement of mobile objects, considering an extension of core UML state machines by primitives that designate the location of objects and their moves within a network. Our contribution is twofold: first, we formalize the semantics of state machines in MTLA, an extension of Lamport's Temporal Logic of Actions with spatial modalities. Second, we study refinement concepts for state machines that are semantically justified in MTLA.
