Abstract Interpretation Based Verification of Non-Functional Requirements

Abstract

The paper investigates a formal approach to the verification of non functional software requirements, e.g. portability, time and space efficiency, dependability/robustness. The key-idea is the notion of observable, i.e., an abstraction of the concrete semantics when focusing on a behavioral property of interest. By applying an abstract interpretation-based static analysis of the source program, and by a suitable choice of abstract domains, it is possible to design formal and effective tools for non-functional requirements validation.
