The research group for formal methods
The Formal Methods group at the Department of
Informatics, University of Oslo, Norway, is working on tools and
languages for object-oriented and component-based software
development. Our current research focus includes

     * formal specification and analysis of real-time systems
     * object-orientation and open distributed systems
     * rewriting logic
     * specification and verification of OO-programs

Our research combines theoretical foundations with the goal to develop
practical tools and languages to capture software adaptability.  The
group's activities include both theoretical, foundational, and
experimental work within formal methods, semantics, and language design.
