The unified modeling language (UML) developed under the coordination of the Object Management Group (OMG) is one of the most important standards for the specification and design of object-oriented systems. This standard is currently tuned for real-time applications in the form of a new proposal, UML for Real-Time (UML-RT), by Rational Software Corporation and ObjecTime Limited. Because of the importance of UML-RT we are investigating its formal foundation in a joint project between ObjecTime Limited, Technische Universitaet Muenchen and the University of Bucharest. In this paper we present part of this foundation, namely the theory of flow-graphs.
