Validation and verification is an area of software engineering that has been around since the early stages of program development, especially one of its more known areas: testing. Testing, the dynamic side of validation and verification (V&V), has been complemented with other, more formal techniques of software engineering, and so the static verification -- traditional in formal methods -- has been joined by model checking and other techniques.

Verification, Validation and Testing in Software Engineering offers thorough coverage of many valuable formal and semiformal techniques of V&V. It explores, depicts, and provides examples of different applications in V&V that produce many areas of software development -- including real-time applications -- where V&V techniques are required.
