Metamorphic Programming: Unconventional High
March 2004 (vol. 37 no. 3)
pp. 30-38
Peter M. Maurer, Baylor University

A programming methodology that violates most of the rules of good programming has shown spectacular reductions in simulation times on several benchmarks. Applying this technique in logic-level VLSI circuit simulation also improved simulation performance. For a new VLSI circuit, faster simulation translates into faster time to market, so even the most peculiar programming type is worth exploring if the carrot is increased performance.

Discovering efficient and effective metamorphic programming techniques across a range of problems outside simluation will require a concerted effort across the software community. The most important problem is the lack of metamorphic constructs in mainstream high-level languages.
