Fundamentals of Algebraic Specification 2 Module Specifications and Constraints

Since the early seventies concepts of specification have become central in the whole area of computer science. Especially algebraic specification techniques for abstract data types and software systems have gained considerable importance in recent years. They have not only played a central role in t...
