  Needed foundations for assuring the desirable behavior of software-reliant systems
Northrop L., Klein M., Goodenough J., Smith D.  FoSER 2010 (Proceedings of the FSE/SDP Workshop on Future of Software Engineering Research, Santa Fe, NM, Nov 7-8, 2010) 259-262, 2010.  Type: Proceedings

Since the beginning of computing, lamenting the increasing complexity of computing systems and the difficulty of delivering quality systems has been a nearly ubiquitous theme in research literature. Yet, there seems to be a consensus i...

  A binomial software reliability model based on coverage of structural testing criteria
Crespo A., Jino M., Pasquini A., Maldonado J. Empirical Software Engineering 13(2): 185-209, 2008.  Type: Article

One goal of reliability modeling is to develop a model that will allow better prediction of software reliability. As software developers test their software, it would help in many ways if they knew the reliability of the software, incl...

  Trust in technology: a socio-technical perspective (Computer Supported Cooperative Work)
Clarke K., Hardstone G., Rouncefield M., Sommerville I., Springer-Verlag New York, Inc., Secaucus, NJ, 2006. 221 pp.  Type: Book (9781402042577)

Trust in technology, the title of this book, suggests a very broad theme, stressing the importance of the concept of trust in dealing with technology. The book concentrates on a particular kind of technology, however: software s...

  Self-healing components in robust software architecture for concurrent and distributed systems
Shin M. Science of Computer Programming 57(1): 27-44, 2005.  Type: Article

Is the concept of self-healing a step forward compared to fault tolerance? This paper claims that self-healing components can be achieved by a process consisting of “anomalous object detection, dynamic reconfiguration bef...

  Reliability assessment and sensitivity analysis of software reliability growth modeling based on software module structure
Lo J., Huang C., Chen I., Kuo S., Lyu M. Journal of Systems and Software 76(1): 3-13, 2005.  Type: Article

The authors consider two main types of component-based systems. One type has, architecturally, little interaction between components. Thus, its reliability is some sort of mathematical expression of the total reliability. The other typ...

  Software reliability engineering: more reliable software faster and cheaper
Musa J., Authorhouse, 2004.  Type: Book (9781418493882)

I have heard about Musa’s work on software reliability engineering for most of my professional career. To be honest, I have been a bit turned off by it, because, first, it seemed somehow unrealistic in a software world wh...
