Establishing satisfaction of a property by a formal model of the system behavior is called semantics. The semantic domain is a set of all such formal models of system behaviors. A property of the

SD3049 Formal Methods in Software Engineering

Formal method is a way to takes the specification (written in natural language) and converts it into its mathematical equivalent. Thus it is normally used in the SDLC Analysis and Design stages. The natural language usually contains ambiguous, incomplete and inconsistent statement. Once a specification in English for example is translated to a ...
