Bisimulation. Whenever one process does an action, the other process must also be able to take the same action and both processes must reach the same state.

Partition refinement: separating a set into mutually exclusive sets. Greatest fixed point: start with the largest set and apply a transformation function such that the next set settles down to itself. Least fixed point: start with the smallest set and apply a function such that it continues to grow until it reaches saturation.

Going through the bisinulation algorithm which is quite a complex ball of steps. matchP is a set where the elements belongs to the partition such that the transitions on an action is not null or itself.

Weak bisimulation is observational equivalence.
