Program Mutation is a method of assessing the quality of computer program test data. Test data is said to be adequate if a program behaves correctly on the data but incorrect programs fail. A mutation score assesses how close a given test is to being adequate. This report describes the status of research in program mutation. Topics covered include theoretical results, error classification, experimental studies, implementation strategies for a mutation analyzer, and field studies. Author
