Synopsis

Not very long ago, the uninhibited use of mathematics in the

development of software was regarded as something for

academics alone. Today, there is moreand more interest

from industry in formal methods based on mathematics. This

interest has come from the success of a number of

experiments on real industrial applications. Thus, there is

not only a belief, but also evidence, that the study of

computer programs as mathematical objects leads to more

efficient methods for constructing them.

The papers in this volume were presented at the Second

International Conference on the Mathematics of Program

Construction, held at St. Catherine's College, Oxford, June

29 - July 3, 1992. The conference was organized by the

Oxford University Programming Research Group, and continued

the theme set by the first - the use of crisp, clear

mathematics in the discovery and design of algorithms. The

second conference gives evidence of the ever-widening impact

of precise mathematical methods in program development.

There are papers applying mathematics not only to sequential

programs but also to parallel and on-current applications,

real-time and reactive systems, and to designs realised

directly in hardware. The volume includes 5 invited papers

and 19 contributed papers.
