Can Practitioners Neglect Theory and Theoreticians Neglect Practice?

Manfred Broy
2011 Computer  
Acknowledgments I thank Benedikt Hauptmann and Holger Pfeifer for reading and commenting on drafts of this article.  ...  Techniques for describing the semantics of programming languages, program specification, and program verification are parts of a theory of programming in the small.  ...  Identifying the differences between craft, scientific theory, and engineering helps in understanding the role of theory in engineering: • Craft applies traditional techniques to produce goods and provide  ...

An Essay Concerning Human Understanding of Genetic Programming [chapter]

Lee Spector
2003 Genetic Programming Theory and Practice  
It presents specific challenges for theory vis-à-vis recent technique enhancements, and briefly discusses possibilities for new forms of theory that will be relevant to the leading edge of genetic programming  ...  It suggests as a consequence that future-oriented genetic programming theory (mathematical theory, developed to help analyze, understand, and predict system behavior) should also borrow, increasingly,  ...  Bill Langdon, Una-May O'Reilly, and Anjun Zhou provided thoughtful reviews that raised more good questions and issues than I could address here.  ...

Social Worked-Examples Technique to Enhance Student Engagement in Program Visualization

Al-Sakkaf Et al.
2019 Baghdad Science Journal  
This paper employed three theories—constructivism, social constructivism and cognitive load to propose a technique for enhancing student engagement with program visualisation.  ...  A part of that, program visualization (PV) is used as a tool to overcome the high failure and drop-out rates in an introductory programming course.  ...  The main goal of PV is to display the runtime behaviour and execution of the program in order to help the student understand how the program is executed in the background.  ...

Theories, tools and research methods in program comprehension: past, present and future

Margaret-Anne Storey
2006 Software quality journal  
In this paper, I review some of the key cognitive theories of program comprehension that have emerged over the past thirty years.  ...  Program comprehension research can be characterized by both the theories that provide rich explanations about how programmers understand software, as well as the tools that are used to assist in comprehension  ...  Acknowledgements My thanks to Janice Singer, Hausi Muller, Robert Lintern, Adam Murray, and Jim Cordy for ideas, feedback and encouragement while writing this paper.  ...

Deepen the Teaching Reform of Operating System, Cultivate the Comprehensive Quality of Students

Jianjun Liu
2010 International Education Studies  
Operating system is the core course of the specialty of computer science and technology. To understand and master the operating system will directly affect students' further study on other courses.  ...  The course of operating system focuses more on theories. Its contents are more abstract and the knowledge system is more complicated.  ...  By this way, students can possess better learning habits and techniques of experiments. (1) Help students to understand theories by experiments Introduce source code analysis in class.  ...

2021 International Journal of Academic Research in Progressive Education and Development  
The theories that provide how to improve program comprehension and tools that can implement the theories. These two characteristics will change the way programmers understand the program codes.  ...  Many researchers review some of the key theories of program comprehension and discusses on how these theories are related to tools that support it.  ...  Future work will focus on the development of new technique in order to improve understanding in program comprehension activity.  ...

On the Role of Logic and Algebra in Software Engineering [chapter]

Manfred Broy
2013 Mathematics, Computer Science and Logic - A Never Ending Story  
Nevertheless, due to the rising quality demands for software and the necessary improvement of productivity by advanced tools we see a growing need for a proper foundation and comprehensive theory of software  ...  In contrast to electronic hardware where we expect that everything is built based on carefully investigated theories with a deep scientific understanding, software creation still is to a large extend ad  ...  What we need is rather obvious: • Foundations of modeling: A tractable scientific basis, understanding, and theory for modeling, specifying, and refining of programs, software and systems. • Powerful models  ...
