Formal Methods

For Safety-Critical Systems

In medicine, transportation (fully automated trains, aerospace) and in energy production (atomic power plants), software errors can have severe consequences.  The use of formal methods can help to prevent such bugs in advance. In our interview, Dr. Christine Natschläger explains why formal methods will rise in importance in the future and why they continue to play a marginal role.
