The software engineering community has applied formal methods to improve software reliability and dependability to specify, design, analyze, and implement a hardware or software system. The challenges while developing a formal model is met by experience accumulated in each particular product class and captured in a normal design discipline. Formal verification methods also include defining of semantics and specification of a complex systems. Abstract interpretation aids in reducing the complexity inherent in proving properties and correctness of complex software systems, resulting in automating reasoning. Computer-aided formal method engineering targets knowledge understanding and solves problems heterogeneously at a meta level, where whole methods and paradigms are combined.
