Diversity and Adjudication

Boiten, Eerke Albert (2015) Diversity and Adjudication. Journal of Logical and Algebraic Methods in Programming, . ISSN 2352-2208. (doi:10.1016/j.jlamp.2015.10.007) (KAR id:51066)


This paper takes an axiomatic and calculational view of diversity (or "N-version programming"), where multiple implementations of the same specification are executed in parallel to increase dependability. The central notion is "adjudication": once we have multiple, potential different, outcomes, how do we come to a single result? Adjudication operators are explicitly defined and some general properties for these explored.
