The Human in Formal Methods

Shriram Krishnamurthi, Tim Nelson

International Symposium on Formal Methods, 2019

(Invited Talk.)


Formal methods are invaluable for reasoning about complex systems. As these techniques and tools have improved in expressiveness and scale, their adoption has grown rapidly. Sustaining this growth, however, requires attention to not only the technical but also the human side. In this paper (and accompanying talk), we discuss some of the challenges and opportunities for human factors in formal methods.
