Chapter 1: Introduction
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 30)


The help that the software engineer can provide the computer user falls into two parts: improvements to the computer systems that he has to use; and tools and techniques that he can make use of in his own work. In the former case greatest benefit will result if there is no sharp distinction drawn between software and hardware engineering.
