Book Description:

This self-contained tutorial on Z, a formal notation for modeling, specifying and designing computer systems and software, presents realistic case studies emphasizing safety-critical systems. It includes exercises with solutions, reference materials and a guide to further reading.

Review:

'... this reviewer cannot imagine a book better suited to inspiring the sceptical hacker into believing that there is some genuine value in formal methods.' R. H. Banach, Axis

'... most books about Z emphasise the mathematics, ... The Way of Z breaks out of this mould to make Z relevant and accessible to all programmers. It is an ideal first or second-year book for students of computing science who want to design and write reliable programs.' Harold Thimbleby, New Scientist

'... especially good for more advanced students ... this book will be inspirational and provide practical guidance to real software engineers.' Computer Journal
