Evaluating context-sensitive slicing and chopping

International Conference on Software Maintenance, 2002. Proceedings.  
We present an empirical evaluation of three contextsensitive slicing algorithms and five context-sensitive chopping algorithms, and compare them to context-insensitive methods. Besides the algorithms by Reps et al. and Agrawal we investigate six new algorithms based on variations of klimited call strings and approximative chopping based on summary information. It turns out that chopping based on summary information may have a prohibitive complexity, and that approximate algorithms are almost as precise and much faster.
