Deduction in the Verification Support Environment (VSE) [chapter]

Dieter Hutter, Bruno Langenstein, Claus Sengler, Jörg H. Siekmann, Werner Stephan, AndreasWolpers Wolpers
1996 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The VSE-tool was developed by a consortium of German universities and industry to make a tool available which supports this formal development process.  ...  In order to assure the highest levels of trustworthiness of software formal methods for the development of software are required.  ...  Figure 1 shows the general method for formal software development in VSE. The concrete instance of this general method depends on the formal concepts used for modeling the desired system.  ...
