Building High Integrity Applications with SPARK, Paperback / softback Book

Building High Integrity Applications with SPARK Paperback / softback



Software is pervasive in our lives. We are accustomed to dealing with the failures of much of that software - restarting an application is a very familiar solution.

Such solutions are unacceptable when the software controls our cars, airplanes and medical devices or manages our private information.

These applications must run without error. SPARK provides a means, based on mathematical proof, to guarantee that a program has no errors.

SPARK is a formally defined programming language and a set of verification tools specifically designed to support the development of software used in high integrity applications.

Using SPARK, developers can formally verify properties of their code such as information flow, freedom from runtime errors, functional correctness, security properties and safety properties.

Written by two SPARK experts, this is the first introduction to the just-released 2014 version.

It will help students and developers alike master the basic concepts for building systems with SPARK.
