Due to the expensiveness of compiling and executing a large number of mutants, it is usually necessary to select a subset of mutants to substitute the whole set of generated mutants in mutation testing and analysis. Most existing research on mutant selection focused on operator-based mutant selection, i.e., determining a set of sufficient mutation operators and selecting mutants generated with only this set of mutation operators. Recently, researchers began to leverage statistical analysis to… CONTINUE READING
