#### Completeness of the Owicki-Gries System for Parameterized Parallel Programs.

#### Leonor Prensa Nieto

The Owicki-Gries system is extended to allow the verification of
parameterized programs of the form "|| S(i,n)" where for each n we
obtain a parallel program consisting of n sequential processes. By the
completeness of the original Owicki-Gries system, we know that for any
valid specification of a parallel program with a fixed number of
components there exists a proof in the system. However, we would like
to know if there exists a single proof that works for any number of
components. In this paper we prove completeness of the extended
system, thus giving a positive answer to the question.
