Reliability of embedded software

Software embedded in physical devices performs computations where the inputs are provided by measures and the outputs are transformed into actions performed by actuators. to improve the quality of these devices, we expect that all the computations performed in this kind of software will need to be made more and more reliable. We claim that formal methods can serve this purpose and we develop the libraries and techniques to support this claim. This implies that we take a serious look at how mathematics can be included in formal methods, especially concerning geometry and calculus.
