What are some good examples of pure Computer Science and Mathematics applications in software QA?



  • I am looking for some good examples of pure Computer Science and Mathematics applications in software QA. The objective is to create a course for CS and Applied Math students with applications that can be used in both practical and theoretical QA.

    Thank you!



  • Statistics is often used explicitly or implicitly. Some examples:

    • Analyzing the validity of multiple performance tests results.

    • Choosing parameter values based on distribution, e.g. uniform vs. normal

    • Developing test techniques, e.g. a proof that randomness is as good as X wise testing under certain assumptions.
