Test data as an aid in proving program correctness

Matthew Geller
1976 Proceedings of the 3rd ACM SIGACT-SIGPLAN symposium on Principles on programming languages - POPL '76  
This paper introduces a technique whereby test data can be used in proving program correctness.  ...  Proofs of program correctness tend to be long and tedious whereas testing, though useful in detecting errors, usually does not guarantee correctness.  ...  A further argument for testing as opposed to proving correctness goes as follows. In proving program correctness, one might forget entirely that an array reference may be out of bounds.  ...

In this paper we present the detailed proof of this statement.” Geller, Matthew Test data as an aid in proving program correctness. Comm. ACM 21 (1978), no. 5, 368-375.  ...  The author says that proving a program correct might be hard. Conversely, program testing is easier but, as Dijkstra says, it only detects bugs in programs; it does not ensure their absence.  ... 

Compiler testing via symbolic interpretation

Hanan Samet
1976 Proceedings of the annual conference on - ACM 76  
A method for compiler testing using symbolic interpretation is presented. This method is a cross between program proving and program testing.  ...  The highlights and limitations of the process as well as future work are discussed in a framework of a specific LISP implementation on a PDP-IO computer.  ...  This is accomplished with the aid of an equality data base.  ...

A summary of progress toward proving program correctness

T. A. Linden
1972 Proceedings of the December 5-7, 1972, fall joint computer conference, part I on - AFIPS '72 (Fall, part I)  
Testing can and often does prove a program is incorrect, but no reasonable amount of testing can ever prove that a nontrivial program will be correct over all allowable inputs.  ...  It is very much an open question whether automated proof techniques will ever be feasible as a commonly used alter-native to testing a program.  ...  In this case it may be worth the additional cost of a proof to obtain an independent evaluation of correctness.  ...
