Summary Synthesis of Embedded Software: Frameworks and Methodologies for Correctness by Construction Edited by: Sandeep Kumar Shukla Jean-Pierre Talpin Embedded software is ubiquitous today. There are millions of lines of embedded code in smart phones, and even more in systems responsible for automotive control, avionics control, weapons control and space missions. Some of these are safety-critical systems whose correctness, timely response, and reliability are of paramount importance. These requirements pose new challenges to system designers. This necessitates that a proper design science, based on "constructive correctness" be developed. Correct-by-construction design and synthesis of embedded software is done in a way so that post-development verification is minimized, and correct operation of embedded systems is maximized. This book presents a sampling of the state of the art in the design of safety-critical, embedded software. It introduces readers to a number of major approaches to specification driven embedded software synthesis/construction. While it is not exhaustive in scope, it compiles knowledge that is otherwise scattered in numerous journals and conferences proceedings. It is a valuable reference for practitioners and researchers concerned with improving the embedded systems product development life-cycle. Provides state-of-the-art research on new software engineering life-cycle for safety-critical, embedded software; Includes theory, methodologies, and examples of "correct by construction" software engineering; Allows for the design of embedded software with a reduced verification burden and guarantee of correctness; Offers a reference to the latest research, otherwise available only in disparate journals and conference proceedings
