This thesis gives a specification of a communication protocol known as "Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection (CSMA/CD) Medium Access Control and Physical Layer Specifications" using Systems of Communicating Machines and shared variables. This protocol is defined in the ANSI/IEEE Standard 802.3 (using the same name). Specification has been analysed using a method called system state analysis. The analysis showed the protocol to be free from deadlocks. The study concludes that CSMA/CD protocol needs a better specification method.
