Formal Methods and Tools
In the Formal Methods and Tools (FMT) research group, formal techniques and tools are developed and used as a means to support the development of software. This includes the development of formal theories of concurrency, design methodologies for distributed systems, and correctness assessment using verification or validation techniques. The group is also concerned with the development of traditional tools such as compilers and interpreters. In both research and courses much attention is paid to the applicability of formal methods.

Lesley Wevers, Wanno Drijfhout and Oliver Jundt won Norvig Web Data Science Award
Lesley Wevers, Wanno Drijfhout and Oliver Jundt have won the Norvig Web Data Science Award. This is a challenge where participants show what they can do with the Common Crawl dataset -- a snapshot of a large part of the web -- using SURFsara’s Hadoop service to provide big data compute power. The winning entry uses the dataset to construct a database of associated concepts, which can be queried through a web application with two query interfaces. A textual interface allows searching for similarities and differences between multiple concepts using a query language similar to set notation, and a graphical interface allows users to visualize similarity relationships of concepts in a force directed graph.
