Resolving the Equivalent Mutant Problem in the Presence of Non-determinism and Coincidental Correctness

Abstract : In this paper, we develop a new mutation testing technique called Interlocutory Mutation Testing (IMT) that mitigates the equivalent mutant problem in the presence of coincidental correctness and non-determinism. The accuracy of IMT was evaluated; it obtained a classification accuracy of 93.33 % for non-equivalent mutants and 100 % for equivalent mutants in a non-deterministic system with coincidental correctness.
