Statistical Software Testing

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter in a book


This chapter discusses the statistical testing of software. Statistical Software Testing (SST) is gaining more acceptance as a method of assessing software integrity and provides a quantifiable measure of reliability. The tasks necessary to carry out SST are described. SST for risk estimation is compared against SST for failure probability estimation. Software environment simulation for SST is particularly demanding; the various issues are described. SST is related to test adequacy measurement as commonly understood.
