An Introduction to Discrete Mathematics, Formal System Specification, and Z (Oxford Applied Mathematics and Computing Science Series)


An Introduction to Discrete Mathematics, Formal System Specification, and Z (Oxford Applied Mathematics and Computing Science Series)
Formal specification is the name given to the use of discrete mathematics in computer science for describing the function of both hardware and software systems. Poor specification often gives rise to severe problems in software and hardware installation. This textbook is an introduction to both the theory and practice of formal specification, and this new edition includes two new chapters on Z, one giving a number of small examples in Z, the other covering design and Z. Prerequisites in this edition have been kept to a minimum since Professor Ince is at pains to develop the techniques of requirement analysis and discrete mathematics that are needed. Throughout the book are numerous worked examples and exercises which include many real examples of software and computer systems.
