The B Language and Method : A Guide to Practical Formal Development PDF
by Kevin Lano
Part of the Formal Approaches to Computing and Information Technology (FACIT) series
B is one of the few formal methods which has robust, commercially-available tool support for the entire development lifecycle from specification through to code generation.
This volume provides a comprehensive introduction to the B Abstract Machine Notation, and to how it can be used to support formal specification and development of high integrity systems.
A strong emphasis is placed on the use of B in the context of existing software development methods, including object-oriented analysis and design.
The text includes a large number of worked examples, graduated exercises in B AMN specification and development (all of which have been class-tested), two extended case studies of the development process, and an appendix of proof techniques suitable for B.
Based on material which has been used to teach B at postgraduate and undergraduate level, this volume will provide invaluable reading a wide range of people, including students, project technical managers and workers, and researchers with an interest in methods integration and B semantics.
