## Social Processes and Proofs of Theorems and Programs
A paper that was mentioned in the discussion forum,
by Richard A. De Millo, Richard J. Lipton, Alan J. Perlis, 1979.
It is argued that formal verifications of programs, no matter how obtained, will not play the same key role in the development of computer science and software engineering as proofs do in mathematics. Furthermore, the absence of continuity, the inevitability of change, and the complexity of specification of significantly many real progarms make the formal verification process difficult to justify and manage. It is felt that ease of formal verification should not dominate program language deisgn. |
