Recently, a substantial push has been done toward the design of efficient procedures for lattice construction , with a variety of novel algorithms proposed in the literature. However, the FCA(More)
Predicting stability in object-oriented (OO) software, i.e., the ease with which a software item evolves while preserving its design, is a key feature for software maintenance. In fact, a well designed OO software must be able to evolve without violating the compatibility among versions, provided that no major requirement reshuffling occurs. Stability ,(More)
