|Wikimedia Commons has media related to Formal methods.|
Formal methods are mathematical approaches to software and hardware computer-based system development from requirements, specification and design through to programming and implementation. They form an important theoretical underpinning for software engineering, especially where safety or security is involved. Formal methods are a useful adjunct to software testing since they help avoid errors and can also give a framework for testing. For industrial use, tool support is required.
