Abstract

This chapter describes techniques for the verification of refactorings or transformations of UML models which introduce Design patterns. The techniques use a semantics of object-oriented systems defined by the object calculus (Fiadeiro & Maibaum, 1991; Lano, 1998), and the pattern transformations are proved to be refinements using this semantics.
