On The Limits of Mutation Reduction Strategies

Mutation analysis is a key technique in software test suite evaluation. However, it is expensive to run, and numerous techniques have been developed to reduce the mutans to be evaluated.
This research describes a theoretical and empirical investigation into strategies such as operator selection and stratified sampling, and their effectiveness in improving the quality of mutants produced.
