Summer Term 2020

On this page you find all the courses offered by the chair of Software Engineering in the summer term 2020 as well as respective slides and accompanying exercises.

Automata Theory (Seminar, Proseminar)

In the lecture about theoretical computer science you have seen finite automata, pushdown automata and Turing machines. All three of them operate on finite words. However there are other automata models and automata that do not operate on finite words, but e.g. on infinite words, on nested words, on trees, etc. In this seminar we will have a look at automata models that you have not seen in the lecture on theoretical computer science.

Program Verification (Lecture)

Often computers are used in embedded, networked, safety critical applications. The cost of failure is high. In this lecture we introduce the basis of automatic tools for ensuring that a system does not have bad behaviours. In the lecture, we start with a short introduction to propositional logic and first-order reasoning. We then go on to establish a setting for the verification of programs, whose correctness is specified by a kind of program comments. In this setting, the correctness of the program is reduced to the validity of logical formulas. The validity is proven automatically by a new generation of powerful reasoning engines.

Softwaretechnik / Software Engineering (Lecture)

Software engineering is "the application of engineering to software" (IEEE 610.12). Goal of this course is to provide a broad overview over the challenges of software engineering and techniques and tools to overcome them. To this end, we will discuss the main activities with software development (in particular project management, requirements engineering, design, testing, formal verification) with an emphasis on formal methods. We will study process models, (software metrics), approaches to requirements specification and analysis, (formal) modeling and analysis techniques, design and architecture patterns, testing, and program verification.
