AbC is a process calculus designed for describing collective adaptive systems, whose distinguishing feature is the communication mechanism relying on predicates over attributes exposed by components. A novel approach to the analysis of concurrent systems modelled as AbC terms is presented that relies on the UMC model checker, a tool based on modelling concurrent systems as communicating UML-like state machines. A structural translation from AbC specifications to the UMC internal format is provided and used as the basis for the analysis. Three different algorithmic solutions of the well studied stable marriage problem are described in AbC and their translations are analysed with UMC. It is shown how the proposed approach can be exploited to identify emerging properties of systems and unwanted behaviour.
