  • Hierarchical Metamorphic Relations for Testing Scientific Software

    Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):1 - 8

    Scientist developers have not yet routinely adopted systematic testing techniques to assure software quality. A key challenge is the oracle problem, a situation in which appropriate mechanisms are unavailable for checking if the code produces the expected output when executed using a set of test cases (TCs). Metamorphic testing alleviates the oracle problem by specifying the relationship that a so... View full abstract»

    Computational science and engineering communities develop complex application software with multiple mathematical models that need to interact with one another. Partly due to complexity of verifying scientific software, and partly because of the way incentives work in science, there has been insufficient testing of these codes. With a spotlight on the results produced with scientific software, and... View full abstract»

    Software is a vital part of modern research. The competence to develop sustainable software becomes increasingly important for research organizations. The DLR - a large research organization in Germany - has set up a software engineering initiative to address typical obstacles in this regard such as missing long-term funding, lack of incentives, or missing knowledge about essential software develo...

    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (758 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The number of scientific publications is increasing each year, specifically in the field of computer science. In order to condense existing knowledge, evidence-based software engineering is concerned with systematic literature reviews, surveys, and other kinds of literature analysis. These methods are used to summarize the evidence on empirical studies – or approaches in general – and to identify ... View full abstract»

    It is common for science and engineering courses to include one computing unit, usually in first year. In a newly-developed first-year unit, we have combined Python coding, Science and Engineering applications and research-oriented skills to help students understand how coding may be applied in their studies and research. Student responses have been positive, and the unit continues to evolve in re... View full abstract»

    About 20 years ago the need for scientists and engineers to have basic knowledge of software development skills and tools became apparent. Without these so-called software carpentry skills, developers were wasting time and compromising the quality of their work. Since that time great progress has been made with software carpentry, as evidenced by the growing understanding of the importance of tool... View full abstract»
