Abstract:

There were three major contributions that came out of this research. The first was the development of a program development environment that permits software to be reused. The second was the development of techniques for the design and specification of concurrent programs. The third was a new method for writing programs that involves pictures. For each of these conditions a student Ph.D. thesis was produced, in particular Dr. Anne Curran worked on the first problem, Dr. Thierry Paradan worked on the second problem and Dr. Georg Raeder worked on the last problem. Since each of their contributions are radically different, this summary report is broken into three categories, each based upon their work.
