[en] Model transformations are one of the core artifacts of a model-driven engineering approach. The relational logic language Alloy has been used in the past to verify properties of model transformations. In this paper we introduce the concept of functional Alloy modules. In essence a functional Alloy module can be viewed as an Alloy module representing a model transformation. We describe a sublanguage of Alloy called F-Alloy specifically designed to concisely specify functional Alloy modules. The restrictions on F-Alloy’s syntax are meant to allow efficient execution of the specified transformation, without the use of backtracking, by an adapted interpretation algorithm. F-Alloy’s semantics is given in this paper as a direct translation to Alloy; hence, F-Alloy specifications are also analyzable using the powerful automatic analysis features of Alloy.
