Tool Support for System Specification, Development and by R. Berghammer, Y. Lakhnech, W. Reif (auth.), Prof. Dr.

By R. Berghammer, Y. Lakhnech, W. Reif (auth.), Prof. Dr. Rudolf Berghammer, Dr. Yassine Lakhnech (eds.)

The right improvement of huge / com plex items of software program calls for an intensive structuring of the layout procedure. In a primary part the necessities engineering is correct for taking pictures the proper performance and its sufficient formalization in exact mathematical definitions. Prototyping can can be utilized as a way for checking the useful behaviour at this early degree of improvement. The ade­ quate specification caused by the 1st section is then the root for the second one part which includes the derivation of an implementation. This part calls for using formal equipment and instruments to verify/validate the implementation. A prerequisite for utilising this procedure is to have an appropriate mechanical aid. This quantity includes the complaints of the foreign Workshop software help for process Specification, improvement and Verification equipped June 1 - four, 1998, in Malente, Germany. This workshop is the 3rd in a chain of occasions dedicated to this subject. the 1st workshops have been held in 1994 in Kiel and 1996 in Bremen, Germany. the purpose of this workshop is to supply a discussion board for researchers attracted to the use and improvement of instruments which aid using mathematical recommendations for the specification, improvement and verification of platforms. The workshop covers the spectrum from verification instruments to graphical editors and compilers. this system of the workshop integrated an invited lecture and 26 talks.
