Editorial Reviews

"There is a definite need for documenting the advances in testing . I find the work of this edited volume by Dimitris Gizopoulos and his team of authors to be significant and timely. [.] the book provides, besides novel test methodologies, a collective insight into the emerging aspects of testing. This, I think, is beneficial to practicing engineers and researchers both of whom must stay at the forefront of technology. [.] This latest addition to the Frontiers Series is destined to serve an important role."From the Foreword by Vishwani D. Agrawal, Consulting EditorFrontiers in Electronic Testing Book Series
