A Simple Complexity Measurement for Software Verification and Software Testing
Cheng, Zheng and Monahan, Rosemary and Power, James F. (2012) A Simple Complexity Measurement for Software Verification and Software Testing. Proceedings of the 1st International Workshop on Comparative Empirical Evaluation of Reasoning Systems, 873 . pp. 28-331. ISSN 1613-0073
In this paper, we used a simple metric (i.e. Lines of Code) to measure the complexity involved in software verification and software testing. The goal is then, to argue for software verification over software testing, and motivate a discussion of how to reduce the complexity involved in software verification. We propose to reduce this complexity by translating the software to a simple intermediate representation which can be verified using an efficient verifier, such as Boogie .
