Abstract In this paper, a process algebra that incorporates explicit representations of successful termination, deadlock, and divergence is introduced and its semantic theory is analyzed. Both an operational and a denotational semantics for the language is given and it is shown that they agree. The operational theory is based upon a suitable adaptation of the notion of bisimulation preorder. The denotational semantics for the language is given in terms of the initial continuous algebra that satisfies a set of equations $\textit{E},$ $\textit{CIE}.$ It is shown that $\textit{CIE}$ is fully abstract with respect to our choice of behavioral preorder. Several results of independent interest are obtained; namely, the finite approximability of the behavioral preorder and a partial completeness result for the set of equations $\textit{E}$ with respect to the preorder.
