To understand what a correct algorithm is. To gain knowledge of designing correct algorithms and proving their correctness hand- in-hand. To learn the methods of program verification and validation. To become used with building correct programs from specifications.
To acquire a modern programming style.
I. The theory of program correctness (4 lectures)
- Program Specification
- Floyd method for prooving correctness
- Hoare axiomatisation method
- Dijkstra: the weakest precondition.
- Stepwise refinement from specifications
- The Evolution of the concept of programcorrectness. The Contribution of Floyd, Hoare, Dijkstra, Gries, Droomey, Morgan
II. Verification and validation: (3 lectures)
- the concepts verification and validation;
- the verification methods;
- program inspection;
- symbolic execution;
- testing and debugging;
III. Program testing: (3 cursuri)
- the concept of Program testing;
- unit testing: testing criteria, blackbox and whitebox testing;
- types of testing: integration T., system T., regression T., acceptance T.
- testing automatizing
IV. Model checking (2 lectures)
V. Comparing the verification methods (2 lectures)
- correctness-inspection-testing-symbolic execution
- Cleanroom. Program Quality
- The consequences of the theory of program correctness on programming. Programming style.
