About Book

Book Description
This book contains enough mnaterial for three complete courses of study. It provides an introduction to the world of logic, sets and relations. It explains the use of the Znotation in the specification of realistic systems. It shows how Z specifications may be refined to produce executable code; this is demonstrated in a selection of case studies. The essentials of specification, refinement and proof are covered, revealing techniques never previously published.

Exercises, Solutions and set of Tranparencies are available via http://www.comlab.ox.ac.uk/usingz.html

From the Back Cover
This is the first book to cover the three important areas of using the Z notation -- specification, rigorous and formal proof, and refinement into code. It covers sequences, schemas, promotion, preconditions, a logic for Z, sample theorems, data refinement, algorithm development, and more. For programmers, software designers, and software engineers. Previously announced in 2/93 PTR Catalog.
