Formal Methods and Software Engineering: 6th International Conference on Formal Engineering Methods

Buy
Formal engineering methods are changing the way that software systems are developed. With language and tool support, they are being used for automatic code generation, and for the automatic abstraction and checking of implementations. In the future, they will be used at every stage of development: requirements, specification, design, implementation, testing, and documentation.

The ICFEM series of conferences aims to bring together those interested in the application of formal engineering methods to computer systems. Researchers and practitioners, from industry, academia, and government, are encouraged to attend, and to help advance the state of the art. Authors are strongly encouraged to make their ideas as accessible as possible, and there is a clear emphasis upon work that promises to bring practical, tangible benefit: reports of case studies should have a conceptual message, theory papers should have a clear link to application, and papers describing tools should have an account of results.

ICFEM 2004 was the sixth conference in the series, and the first to be held in North America. Previous conferences were held in Singapore, China, UK, Australia, and Japan. The Programme Committee received 110 papers and selected 30 for presentation. The final versions of those papers are included here, together with 2-page abstracts for the 5 accepted tutorials, and shorter abstracts for the 4 invited talks.

We would like to thank: Dines Bjørner, for his work in organizing speakers and sponsors; Jin Song Dong and Jim Woodcock, for an excellent handover from ICFEM 2003; Joxan Jaffar, J Strother Moore, Peter Neumann, and Amitabh Srivastava, for agreeing to address the conference; the authors, for submitting their work; the Programme Committee, and their colleagues, for their reviews; and Springer, for their help with publication.

ICFEM 2004 was organized by Microsoft Research in Seattle, with additional support and sponsorship from the University of Oxford, the United Nations University, Formal Methods Europe, NASA, and ORA Canada.

Introduction to Genetic Algorithms
Introduction to Genetic Algorithms

The origin of evolutionary algorithmswas an attempt tomimic some of the processes taking place in natural evolution. Although the details of biological evolution are not completely understood (even nowadays), there exist some points supported by strong experimental evidence:

• Evolution is a process operating over chromosomes...

Thermodynamics: An Engineering Approach
Thermodynamics: An Engineering Approach
The worldwide bestseller Thermodynamics: An Engineering Approach brings further refinement to an approach that emphasizes a physical understanding of the fundamental concepts of thermodynamics. The authors offer an engineering textbook that "talks directly to tomorrow's engineers in a simple yet precise manner, that encourages...
Problems on Algorithms
Problems on Algorithms
The ability to devise effective and efficient algorithms in new situations is a skill that separates the master programmer from the merely adequate coder. The best way to develop that skill is to solve problems. To be effective problem solvers, master-programmers-in-training must do more than memorize a collection of...

Computational Intelligence In Software Quality Assurance (Series in Machine Perception & Artifical Intelligence)
Software systems are at once the most complex and the least reliable technological systems human beings construct. A large software system can have over lo2' states, and the reliability of software is infamously poor. Software engineers must usually make assertions about the reliability of software systems after having observed only an...
