This paper presents an algebraic calculus like the relational calculus for reasoning about sequential phenomena. It provides a common foundation for several proposed models of concurrent or reactive systems. It is clearly differentiated from the relational calculus by absence of a general converse operation. This permits the treatment of temporal logic within the sequential calculus. © 1995.
