Theories of Programming and Formal Methods
This Festschrift volume, dedicated to He Jifeng on the occasion of his 70th birthday in September 2013, includes 24 refereed papers by leading researchers, current and former colleagues, who congratulated at a celebratory symposium held in Shanghai, China, in the course of the 10th International Colloquium on Theoretical Aspects of Computing, ICTAC 2013. The papers cover a broad spectrum of subjects, from foundational and theoretical topics to programs and systems issues and to applications, comprising formal methods, software and systems modeling, semantics, laws of programming, specification and verification, as well as logics. more »
Unifying Theories of Programming and Formal Engineering Methods
This book presents 5 tutorial lectures by leading researchers given at the ICTAC 2013 Software Engineering School on Unifying Theories of Programming and Formal Engineering Methods, held in Shanghai, China in August 2013.The lectures are aimed at postgraduate students, researchers, academics, and industrial engineers. They cover topics such as component-based and service-oriented systems, real-time systems, hybrid systems, cyber physical systems, and present techniques such as inductive theorem proving, model checking, correction by construction through refinement and model transformations, synthesis, and computer algebra. Two of the courses are explicitly related to Hoare and He's Unifying Theories of Programming. more »
