21. Static Analyzers in Software Engineering
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: 3/2/2009
Author: Paul E Black
Abstract: Static analyzers can report possible problems in code and help reinforce good practices of developers. We contrast the strengths of static analyzers with testing and indicate the current state of the art.

22. Pseudo-Exhaustive Testing for Software
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: 4/28/2006
Authors: David R Kuhn, Vadim Okun
Abstract: Pseudo-exhaustive testing uses the empirical observation that, for broad classes of software, a fault is likely triggered by only a few variables interacting. The method takes advantage of two relatively recent advances in software engineering: algor ...

23. Failure Modes in Medical Device Software: an Analysis of 15 Years of Recall Data
Topic: Software Testing Metrics
Published: 12/5/2001
Authors: Dolores R. Wallace, David R Kuhn
Abstract: Most complex systems today contain software, and systems failures activated by software faults can provide lessons for software development practices and software quality assurance. This paper presents an analysis of software-related failures of medi ...
