What Can We Expect from Program Verification?
October 2006 (vol. 39 no. 10)
pp. 65-71
Michael Jackson, The Open University
Program verification assumes a formal program specification. In software-intensive systems, such specifications must depend on formalization of the natural, nonformal problem world. This formalization is inevitably imperfect and poses major difficulties of structure and reasoning. Appropriate verification tools can help address these difficulties and improve system reliability.
Index Terms:
software engineering, program verification, system reliability, software-intensive systems
