This volume presents a collection of methods for dealing with software reliability. Ideally, formal methods need to be intuitive to use, require a relatively brief learning period, and incur only small overhead to the development process. This book compares these varying methods and reveals their respective advantages and disadvantages, while also staying close to the dual themes of automata theory and logic. Topics and features: * Collects and compares the key software reliability methods currently in use: deductive verification, automatic verification, testing, and process algebra * Provides useful information suitable in the software selection process for a given project * Offers numerous exercises, projects, and running examples to facilitate learning formal methods and allows for ?hands-on? experience with these critical tools * Describes the mathematical principles supporting formal methods * Gives insights into new research directions in the...
