Software is the essential enabler for the new economy and science. It creates new markets and new directions for a more reliable, flexible and robust society. It empowers the exploration of our world in even more depth. However, software often falls short behind our expectations. Current software methodologies, tools and techniques remain expensive and not yet reliable for a highly changeable and evolutionary market. Many approaches have been proven only as case-by-case oriented methods. This book presents a number of new trends and theories in the direction in which we believe software science and engineering may develop to transform the role of software and science in tomorrow’s information society. This book is an attempt to capture the essence of a new state-of-art in software science and its supporting technology. The book also aims at identifying the challenges such a technology has to master. One example that is challenged is Lyee methodology as a new Japanese emerged software methodology that has been patented in several countries in Europe, Asia and America. But it is still in its early stage of emerging as a new software style. This series will also contribute to elaborate on such new trends and related academic research studies and development.
