Fault-based analysis and testing uses potential faults in the code as a basis for constructing test sets. Models of the functional behavior of software, such as the fault-failure and error flow models, enable the analysis of the code's behavior in the presence of possible faults and guide the selection of fault-revealing tests. Fault-based techniques discussed include symbolic fault-based testing, mutation analysis and testing, PIE analysis, propagation analysis, and perturbation analysis.
