abstract = {HOL-TestGen is a specification and test case generation
environment extending the interactive theorem prover
Isabelle/\acs{hol}. The HOL-TestGen method is two-staged:
first, the original formula, called \emph{test
specification}, is partitioned into \emph{test cases} by
transformation into a normal form called \emph{test
theorem}. Second, the test cases are analyzed for ground
instances (the \emph{test data}) satisfying the constraints
of the test cases. Particular emphasis is put on the
control of explicit test hypotheses which can be proven
over concrete programs.
As such, explicit test hypotheses establish a logical link
between validation by test and by proof. Since HOL-TestGen
generates explicit test hypotheses and makes them amenable
to formal proof, the system is in a unique position to
explore the relations between them at an example.},
