    In this paper, we present a process-algebraic speci??cation of group membership protocols specified in [Y. Amir, D. Dolev, S. Kramer and D. Malki, Membership Algorithms for Multicast Communication Groups, Springer-Verlag, 1992]. In order to formalise the protocol and its properties we disambiguate the informal specification provided by the paper. This requires trying different possible interpretations in the formal model and checking the consistency of the assumption and formally verifying the correctness properties. We thus present a formal reconstruction of the membership algorithms and model-check our reconstruction.
