The evolution of VDM tools from the 1990s to 2015 and the influence of CAMILA

Peter Gorm Larsen, John Fitzgerald
2016 Journal of Logical and Algebraic Methods in Programming  
The Vienna Development Method (VDM) is one of the most mature formal methods, with a history of cost-effective industrial deployment.  ...  We describe five generations of VDM tools: the IFAD VDM Toolbox, VDMTools, Overture, Crescendo and Symphony, emphasising the influence that the goal of industry usage has had on their features and architectures  ...  VDM and its tools have benefitted from the contributions of many research  ...

PROSPER An Investigation into Software Architecture for Embedded Proof Engines [chapter]

Thomas F. Melham
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The aim of the project was to make mechanized formal analysis more accessible in practice by providing a framework for integrating formal proof tools inside other software applications.  ...  The project was a collaboration between the Universities of Glasgow, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Tübingen and Karlsruhe, and the industrial partners IFAD and Prover Technology.  ...  Warm thanks are also due to the Prosper Management Board and all the individual members of the Prosper research team.  ...

Modeling and Validating Hybrid Systems Using VDM and Mathematica [article]

Bernhard K. Aichernig, Reinhold Kainhofer
2004 arXiv   pre-print
In this article we illustrate how a combination of the formal method VDM and the computer algebra system Mathematica can be used to model and simulate both aspects: the control logic and the physics involved  ...  A new Mathematica package emulating VDM-SL has been developed that allows the integration of differential equation systems into formal specifications.  ...  At the FME'96 conference, he pointed the first author to the industrial needs of analytical methods and tools for hybrid systems.  ...
