Shape types are a general concept of process types which work for many process calculi. We extend the previously published Poly*. system of shape types to support name restriction. We evaluate the expressiveness of the extended system by showing that shape types are more expressive than an implicitly typed p-calculus and an explicitly typed Mobile Ambients. We demonstrate that the extended system makes it easier to enjoy advantages of shape types which include polymorphism, principal typings, and a type inference implementation. © 2010 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
