Formal specification languages and proof methodologies are useful tools in reasoning about different domains: they provide a precise notation in which to express facts, and rigorous procedures with which to ascertain correctness properties of claims made. However, there are several drawbacks to such methods: formal languages make it difficult to express the richness of description of problems and facts, and inferences in these systems are made by choosing from a limited set of small logical… CONTINUE READING
