Example text

11. In this figure the relation Rt is used as the example. 11 Referring to the figure and definition of Rt, R1 ~ { (x,y): X X Y 1 x =y + 1 } it is clear that it is fruitless to attempt to tind an answer (an answer compatible with R1) starting from the value 1 as input. e. that x is in the domain, is: x>1 This condition, often called the weakest pre-condition and denoted by wp(RI), is the least restrictive condition upon values of the appropriate source type for which the specification includes 'answers'.

It might seem strange to start off with a non-deterministic specification of a function - the implementation of which, by definition, has to be deterministic. That is a fair observation, but we often introduce intermediate calculations and, so as to delay design decisions as long as possible, the specification of these can be nondeterministic. We next deal with situations where the assumptions made about input data are deemed too restrictive, or where checking the suitability of data involves as much effort as actually (attempting to) performing the real calculation.

1 We use cases (such as m>n and mSn) to break a problem into two similar, but simpler, problems which together solve the original. 2 We make use of simple instances of the problem (such as when m=n). 3 We have used a way of reducing the problem to another instance of the same problem acting on 'smaller' data value (by replacing gcd(m,n) by gcd(m, m-n) when appropriate). Of course, the detailed reasoning used here depends on the properties of integer operations and tests. We shall seek similar properties of other data types so that certain design principles can be used in many different situations.
