In the algebraic setting test cases are ground equations that represent specific aspects of the desired system behavior or, in the case of negative test cases, represent specific behavior that is to be excluded from the system. We call this inductive equational logic programming. We have developed an algebraic semantics for inductive equational logic programming where hypotheses are cones over specification diagrams. The induction of a hypothesis or specification can then be viewed as a search problem in the category of cones over a specific specification diagram for a cone that satisfies some pragmatic criteria such as being as general as possible. We have implemented such an induction system in the functional part of the Maude specification language using evolutionary computation as a search strategy.", notes = "Department of Computer Science and Statistics University of Rhode Island Kingston, RI 02881, USA", }
