Capture-Recapture Sampling for Estimating Software Error Content
January 1981 (vol. 7 no. 1)
pp. 147-148
J.W. Duran, Programs in Mathematical Sciences, University of Texas at Dallas
Mills capture-recapture sampling method allows the estimation of the number of errors in a program by randomly inserting known errors and then testing the program for both inserted and indigenous errors. This correspondence shows how correct confidence limits and maximum likelihood estimates can be obtained from the test results. Both fixed sample size testing and sequential testing are considered.
Index Terms:
software quality assurance, Confidence limits, error count estimates, hypergeometric distribution, program testing
