18.104.22.168 Mathematical Specification
/Baader, 1990/ section II, chap. 1.2 (here: "operational specification")
The Mathematical Specification is a formal specification defining the behavior of operations by the description of pre- and postconditions.
The postcondition describes the states that are allowed to be reached after the execution of the operation if the precondition was valid before the execution of the operation.
The Mathematical Specification may be applied for the description of operations on every level of abstraction.
There are interfaces to DVER - Design Verification, PVER - Program Verification and ACC - Analysis of Covert Channels.
