14.8 Participation

Participation, denoted as $\Gpartic(x,y)$, relates presentials and persistants to processes. Participants in a process form an orthogonal axis of division for processes, compared to the more common division into temporal parts. Splitting processes based on participants results in processual roles. The relationship of participation is introduced in section 8.1. It can be defined in terms of the projection relation, $\Gprb$.
