Hierarchical programming is being increasingly recognized as helpful in the construction of large programs. Users of hierarchical techniques claim or predict substantial increases in productivity and in the reliability of the programs produced. In this paper the authors describe a formal method for hierarchical program specification, implementation, and proof. The authors apply this method to a significant list processing problem and also discuss a number of extensions to current programming languages that ease hierarchical program design and proof.
