Our research addresses various aspects of analysis, testing, and maintenance of software systems. Recent projects include regression test selection, test-suite minimization and prioritization, analysis and testing of object-oriented software, scalable data-flow analyses, analysis of programs with exception-handling constructs, development of the Aristotle Analysis System for C programs, and development of the Java Architecture for Bytecode Analysis. Additional information: a brochure describing our research.
