A systematic program design method can help developers ensure the correctness and performance of programs while minimizing the development cost. This book describes a method that starts with a clear specification of a computation and derives an efficient implementation by step-wise program analysis and transformations. The method applies to problems specified in imperative, database, functional, logic, and object-oriented programming languages with different data, control, and module abstractions. Designed for courses or self-study, this book includes numerous exercises and examples that require minimal computer science background, making it accessible to novices. Experienced practitioners and researchers will appreciate the detailed examples in a wide range of application areas including hardware design, image processing, access control, query optimization, and program analysis. The last section of the book points out directions for future studies.Read more
- Offers problem specifications and implementations in all of imperative, database, functional, logic and object-oriented programming languages using different data, control and module abstractions
- Outlines a systematic method for transforming clear specifications into efficient implementations using three key steps: iterate, incrementalize and implement
- Contains substantial examples in a wide range of application problems: hardware design, image processing, access control and many more
Reviews & endorsements
"As an experienced programmer and educator, I have to admit, I felt deep enjoyment while reading this book. It was a pleasant experience."
M. M. Tanik, Computing ReviewsSee more reviews
"It will prove very useful for graduate students who wish to start their literature review with a comprehensive example of the state of the art in formal methods, and it is an excellent platform for self-directed learning. This well-structured, comprehensive book reflects the author's experience and strong background in the field. Highly recommended."
L. Benedicenti, Choice
