Tactics for Transformational Programming

Rosemary Monahan, Franz Geiselbrechtinger
1997 unpublished
It illustrates the use of the theorem proving environment as a basis for a program construction tool DEBATE 1 (Deduction Based Transformational Environment) which is under construction in University College  ...  The tool user should only be concerned with transformational programming steps and not with theorem proving activities. Therefore a layer of transformational tactics are discussed and presented.  ...  Finally, we illustrate how these problems may be overcome through the development of tactics for transformational programming.  ...

Reusing software developments

Allen Goldberg
1990 Proceedings of the fourth ACM SIGSOFT symposium on Software development environments - SDE 4  
Given such a derivation history and a modified specifica.tion, the correspondence problem [21,20] a.ddresses how during replay a correspondence between program parts of the origina.l and modified program  ...  One key idea is that tactics are compositional: higher level tactics are constructed from more rudimentary using defined control primitives.  ...  I would like to thank Greg Fisher and Tom Pressburger for useful discussions and for, along with Limei Gilham, implementing the replay system. References  ...

Combining Top-Down and Bottom-Up Techniques in Program Derivation [chapter]

Dipak L. Chaudhari, Om Damani
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We have implemented these tactics in a program derivation system. With the help of simple examples, we show how this approach is useful for avoiding backtracking thereby simplifying the derivations.  ...  We present new tactics for back-propagating the assumptions made during the top-down phase. These tactics help in reducing the guesswork during the derivations.  ...  The CAPS system provides tactics for transforming partially derived programs as well as the proof obligation formulas.  ...

A System for Assisting Program Transformation

Martin S. Feather
1982 ACM Transactions on Programming Languages and Systems  
Program Program transformation has been advocated as a potentially appropriate methodology for program development.  ...  The approach, and the use of this system, are illustrated by presenting portions of the transformation of a compiler for a "toy" language.  ...  for providing the Original inspiration and continuing encouragement and assistance throughout.  ...

Building an IDE for the Calculational Derivation of Imperative Programs

Dipak L. Chaudhari, Om Damani
2015 Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science  
In this paper, we describe an IDE called CAPS (Calculational Assistant for Programming from Specifications) for the interactive, calculational derivation of imperative programs.  ...  Fig. 5 shows the tactic input panel for the Init4 tactic which is used for specifying the program.  ...  This panel is used for selecting a tactic to be applied next and for providing the corresponding tactic parameters.  ...

Correct and user-friendly implementations of transformation systems [chapter]

Kolyang, T. Santen, B. Wolff
1996 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We present an approach to integrate several existing tools and methods to a technical framework for correctly developing and executing program transformations.  ...  We illustrate the approach by proving and implementing the transformation Global Search on the basis of the tactical theorem prover Isabelle.  ...  We would like to thank Maritta Heisel for many discussions on synthesis theorems, and two anonymous referees for very extensive and constructive comments.  ...

Introducing Formal Methods via Program Derivation

Dipak L. Chaudhari, Om Damani
2015 Proceedings of the 2015 ACM Conference on Innovation and Technology in Computer Science Education - ITiCSE '15  
When using the verification tools, there is no structured help available to the students in the actual task of implementing the program, except for the hints provided by the failed proof obligations.  ...  Existing attempts towards including formal methods in introductory programming courses focus on introducing program verification tools.  ...  Consider the "Empty Range" tactic for the summation that transforms the formula ( i : f alse : T.i) to 0.  ...
