44 Non-testing Techniques for V&V (Pairs, 2 minutes) V&V Definitions and examples? Code reviews Reading If you can’t read it, neither can the people maintaining it Walkthrough Team effort (group of 3-5, e.g., designer, moderator, secretary) Manual simulation lead by designer Focus on discovering faults, not on fixing them Inspection Looking for specific faults (e.g., using check lists) E.g., uninitialized variables Sec of Vliet 2008 (Manual Testing Techniques)

66 Overview of Functional Verification Key ideas View programs as mathematical functions Write specifications as mathematical functions Compare two functions for correctness verification Characteristics Based on sets and functions logic (Hoare) Forward reasoning backward reasoning Match informal reasoning

77 Programs as Functions Values of x and y after execution? // pre-state: {(x,10), (y,20)} x = x + y; y = x – y; x = x – y; // post-state: {(x,?), (y,?)}

8
88 Programs as Functions Values of x and y after execution? // pre-state: {(x,10), (y,20)} x = x + y; y = x – y; x = x – y; // post-state: {(x,?), (y,?)} State changing function (or state transformer) Function on program states Map one program state to another {(x,3), (y,5)} … {(x,6), (y,4)} pre-state {(x,5), (y,3)} … {(x,4), (y,6)} post-state

9
99 Concurrent Assignment Notation for express state changing functions [x 1, x 2, …, x n := e 1, e 2, …, e n ] Evaluate e i ’s in the pre-state at the same time Assign them to x i ’s at the same time The values of other state variables remain the same (frame axiom). // [x, y := y, x] x = x + y; y = x – y; x = x – y;

10
10 Conditional Concurrent Assignment Different functions based on some conditions [x > 0 -> sign := 1 | x sign := -1 | else -> sign := 0] Conditions evaluated sequentially from the first to the last in the pre-state Keyword “else” interpreted as “true” [n > maxSize -> n := maxSize | else -> I] [n > 0 -> avg := sum / n | else -> undefined] Identity function Partial function

11
11 Exercise Write a (conditional) concurrent assignment to describe the function computed by the following code. if (n > maxSize) { n = maxSize; } avg = sum / n;

12
12 Intended Functions Intended function: function describing our intention of code Specification for the code Code function: function computed by code Actual behavior implemented by the code // [sum, i := sum + j=1 a.length-1 a[j], anything] while (i < a.length) { sum += a[i]; i++; } Don’t care about the final value.

13
13 Exercise Write intended functions for the following code (a) sum = sum + a; avg = sum / n; (b) if (a[i] == k) { l = i; } (c) while (i < a.length) { if (a[i] == k) { l = i; } i++; }

14
14 Annotating Code Why? To facilitate correctness verification How? Annotate every section of code with intended function // f 0 : [r := largest value in a] // f 1 : [r, i := a[0], 1] r = a[0] int i = 1; // f 2 : [r, i := max of r and largest in a[i..], anything] while (i < a.length) { // f 3 : [r, i := max of r and a[i], i+1] if (a[i] > r) { r = a[i]; } i++; }

15
15 Exercise Annotate the following code with intended functions c = 0; int i = 0; while (i < a.length) { if (a[i] == n) { c++; } i++; }

16 Outline Non-testing techniques for V&V Overview of functional verification Program as functions Intended functions Verification Assignment statement Sequential composition Conditional statement Iterative statement

17
17 Functional Verification Process 1. Write specifications of code as functions, called intended functions 2. Calculate functions computed by code, called code functions 3. Compare code functions (p) with intended functions (f), i.e., p is correct with respect to ( ⊑ ) f if: dom p dom f p(x) = f(x) for every x dom f Why not dom p = dom f ?

18
18 Verification of Assignment Statement Often straightforward Often identical code and intended functions // [x := x + 1] x = x + 1; // [n > 0 -> avg := sum / n] avg = sum / n; More work done by code

19
19 Verification of Sequential Composition Compose code functions // [n > 0 -> sum, avg := sum + a, (sum + a) / n] sum = sum + a; avg = sum / n; [sum := sum + a]; [n 0 -> avg := sum / n] [n 0 -> sum, avg := sum + a; (sum + a) / n] ⊑ [n > 0 -> sum, avg := sum + a; (sum + a) / n]

20
20 Trace Table Calculate code function by tracing state changes made by statements statementxyz x = x + 1x+1 y = 2 * x2*(x+1) z = x + y(x+1) + 2*(x+1) x = x + 1x+2 x = 3 * x3*(x+2) x = x + 1; y = 2 * x; z = x + y; x = x + 1; x = 3 * x; [x, y, z := 3*(x+2), 2*(x+1), (x+1) + 2*(x+1)]

21
21 Exercise Use a trace table to calculate the function computed by the following code. rate = 0.5; years++; interest = balance * rate / 100; balance = balance + interest;

22
22 Modular Verification Can use intended functions in place of code functions for verification // [f 0 ] // [f 1 ] S 1 // [f 2 ] S 2 Proof obligations f 1 ; f 2 ⊑ f 0 S 1 is correct with respect to f 1 (S 1 ⊑ f 1 ) S 2 is correct with respect to f 2 (S 2 ⊑ f 2 )

23
23 Verification of Conditional Statement Calculate code functions using conditional trace tables statementconditionpb p = a * ra * r if (a < b)a < b b = b - ab - a p = a * ra * r if (a < b)a >= b b = b - pb – (a * r) p = a * r; if (a < b) b = b – a; else b = b – p; [a p, b := a * r, b – a | a >= b -> p, b := a *r, b – (a*r)]

24
24 Verification of Conditional Statement (Cont.) Case analysis on conditions // [f] if (B) S 1 else S 2 Proof obligations When B holds, S 1 is correct with respect to f (B S 1 ⊑ f) When B doesn’t hold, S 2 is correct with respect to f ( B S 2 ⊑ f)

25
25 Example Proof by case analysis When x > y x – y |x - y|, thus [z != 0 -> r := (x - y)/z] f When !(x > y) y – x |x - y|, thus [z != 0 -> r := (y - x)/z] f Therefore, if … else … ⊑ f // f: [z != 0 -> r := |x - y| / z] if (x > y) r = (x - y) / z; else r = (y - x) / z;

26
26 Exercise Derive proof obligations for an if statement without an else part. // [f] if (B) S

27
27 Exercise Write an intended function for the following code and prove the correctness of the code with respect to the intended function if (n > maxSize) { n = maxSize; } sum = sum + a; avg = sum / n;

28
28 Verification of Iteration Statement No known way of calculating code function, so proof by induction // [f] while (B) S Proof obligations B doesn’t hold, identity function is correct with respect to f ( B I ⊑ f) If B holds, S followed by f is correct with respect to f (B S;f ⊑ f) Termination for total correctness Loop variant: expression with value increased/decreased on iterations // [f] if (B) { S while (B) S } // [f] if (B) { S [f] } Assuming f is correct

29
29 Example Proof obligations Termination: loop variant, a.length - i Basis: (i < a.length) I ⊑ f1 Induction: i < a.length f2; f1 ⊑ f1 and refinement of f2 Proof of basis f1 ≡ [sum, i := sum + j=i a.length-1 a[j], anything] ≡ [sum, i := sum + 0, anything] (because i >= a.length) ≡ [sum, i := sum, anything] ⊒ [sum, i := sum, i] = I // f1: [sum, i := sum + j=i a.length-1 a[j], anything] while (i < a.length) { // f2: [sum, i := sum + a[i], i+1] sum += a[i]; i++; }

30
30 Example Proof induction step i < a.length f2; f1 ⊑ f1 f2; f1 ≡ [sum, i := sum + a[i], i + 1]; [sum, i := sum + j=i a.length-1 a[j], anything] ≡ [sum, i := sum + a[i] + j=i+1 a.length-1 a[j], anything] ≡ [sum, i := sum + j=i a.length-1 a[j], anything] ≡ f1 // f1: [sum, i := sum + j=i a.length-1 a[j], anything] while (i < a.length) { // f2: [sum, i := sum + a[i], i+1] sum += a[i]; i++; }

31
31 Exercise Prove the termination of the following loop. while (low <= high) { int mid = (low + high) / 2; if (a[mid] < x) low = mid + 1; else if (a[mid] > x) high = mid - 1; else high = low - 1; }

32
32 Initialized Loops Loop seldom used in isolation Preceded by initialization Together compute something useful Loop’s function more general // [f0] // [f1] S1 // [f2] while (B) { // [f3] S2 } Proof obligations f1; f2 ⊑ f0 S1 ⊑ f1 while (B) S2 ⊑ f2, requiring Termination Basis Step: B I ⊑ f2 Induction: B S2;f2 ⊑ f2

33
33 Example // f 0 : [r := largest value in a] // f 1 : [r, i := a[0], 1] r = a[0] int i = 1; // f 2 : [r, i := max of r and largest in a[i..], ?] while (i < a.length) { // f 3 : [r, i := max of r and a[i], i+1] if (a[i] > r) { r = a[i]; } i++; } Proof obligations f 1 ; f 2 ⊑ f 0 Refinement of f 1 Refinement of f 2 Termination of the loop Basis: (i < a.length) I ⊑ f 2 Induction: i < a.length f 3 ; f 2 ⊑ f 2 Refinement of f 3

34
34 Example (Cont.) Proof of f 1 ; f 2 ⊑ f 0 f 1 ; f 2 [r, i := a[0], 1]; [r, i := max of r and largest in a[i..], ?] [r, i := max a[0] and largest in a[1..], ?] [r, i := largest value in a, ?] ⊑ [r := largest value in a] f 0 See handout for other proofs.

35
35 Exercise Write intended functions for the following while loops in isolation. (a) while (i < a.length) { if (a[i] > 0) { sum += a[i]; } i++; } (b) while (n > 1) { n = n – 2; }

36
36 Exercise Prove the correctness of the following code. // [r := n!] r = 1; int i = n; while (i > 1) { r = r * i; i--; }
