Requirements for a Program Refinement Engine

By David Carrington, Ian Hayes, Ray Nickson, Geoffrey Watson and Jim Welsh


Refinement is a mathematically-based technique for developing a program from an abstract specification so that the program satisfies the specification. The aim of the Program Refinement Tool project is to develop a generic refinement tool suitable for supporting a methodology for the interactive development of programs based on the refinement calculus. This report summarizes our investigation into an appropriate engine to use for the refinement calculator and theorem prover in this tool
