This assay of VDM activity depends largely upon a reduction in the sensitivity of vessels in the mesentery of the anesthetized but unshocked test rat to topically applied epi nephrine (8).  ...  In any case, the specific relationship of VDM to the development of irreversi bility cannot be tirmly established on the basis of the rat mesentery test.  ... 

Performance Evaluation of A Testing Framework Using QuickCheck and Hadoop

Yusuke Wada, Shigeru Kusakabe
2012 Journal of Information Processing  
During model development, we can test executable specifications in VDM-SL and VDM++.  ...  We observed effect to coverage and evaluated scalability in testing large amounts of data for executable specifications in our approaches.  ...  Coverage Generally speaking, higher test coverage rate leads to higher confidence in developing software. This also applies to our approach.  ...

Proving consistency of VDM models using HOL

Sander D. Vermolen, Jozef Hooman, Peter Gorm Larsen
2010 Proceedings of the 2010 ACM Symposium on Applied Computing - SAC '10  
We have developed a tool that automatically translates a large subset of VDM and its associated proof obligations, which ensure model consistency, to the theorem prover HOL.  ...  Hence, it is important to have access to efficient proof support which is able to automate a large part of the consistency proofs.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors wish to thank Nick Battle, John Fitzgerald, and Frits Vaandrager for their valuable comments and support when carrying out this work.  ...
