Despite its relatively young age, property testing has progressed enough to merit several surveys by the time of this publication. This one gives an introduction to the field, and presents several of its methods with examples.

The version appearing here is the updated one, which appears in the “Current Trends in Theoretical Computer Science” volume that is based on the BEATCS.

Suppose that you build a sequence of graphs G1, G2, G3… by applying the same elementary operations over and over again. What would this mean for the invariants of the graphs? Here it is shown that for a wide class of graph polynomials, a linear recurrence relation for calculating them will exist.

This paper deals with integer sequences occurring from counting the number of models satisfying a given logical sentence, centering mainly on positive recurrence results.
