As software system have become more complex, the need for better ab-
straction mechanisms has led to the widespread use of abstract data types
A measure of ADT design complexity is an important factor in
describing, explaining, evaluating, and predicting key aspects of the devel-
opment and maintenance of software systems that use them.
discusses a novel method for measuring the design complexity of an ADT
through the process of proving its correctness.
Then, the relative design
complexity of ADT's is expressed in terms of the relative complexity of
abstract-to-concrete representation mappings.
Comparisons among the re-
sults of the developed complexity measure and the results of an experimental
study conducted to investigate this issue are giv...
