Theory Tendency
"There is room for all tendencies in software engineering, including theory"
-paraphrased from editorial in the Militant, Oct 1964


Theory Tendency is a research group within the Department of Computer Science at UCL, and was founded by Dr David Clark and Dr Earl T Barr. It consists of members of CREST who are interested in the theory behind software engineering research. We address many areas of software engineering, though there is a particular interest in software testing. For further information please get in contact with either David Clark or Earl Barr.
