An Introduction to Formal Specification With Z and Vdm (The Mcgraw-Hill International Series in Software Engineering) by Deri Sheppard Download PDF EPUB FB2

Description: This book provides an introduction to program specification, illustrating the advantages it confers upon the software development process. Covering all three major specification languages (Larch, VDM, and Z), the book discusses specification in general, the abstraction process, the mathematical tools required, and the main formal.

The Vienna Development Method (VDM) is one of the longest-established formal methods for the development of computer-based systems. Originating in work done at the IBM Laboratory Vienna in the s, it has grown to include a group of techniques and tools based on a formal specification language—the VDM Specification Language (VDM-SL).

It has an extended form, VDM++, which. Prentice-Hall, Inc. Division of Simon and Schuster One Lake Street Upper Saddle River, NJ; United States.

This paper provides an introduction to the description of information systems using formal, mathematical specifications written in the Z notation, and to the refinement of these specifications into rigorously checked designs.

The first part introduces the idea of a formal specification using a simple example: that of a ‘birthday book’ in which people's birthdays can be recorded, and which Cited by: The book presents a novel view of formal methods, spanning the range of specification techniques.

An overview of the different styles of formal notation is followed by detailed chapters on the two most popular languages, VDM and Z, consistent with the latest draft standards.5/5(1).
