Software Visualization: From Theory to Practice was initially selected as a special volume for The Annals of Software Engineering (ANSE) Journal , which has been discontinued. This special edited volume, is the first to discuss software visualization in the perspective of software engineering. It is a collection of 14 chapters on software visualization, covering the topics from theory to practical systems. The chapters are divided into four Parts: Visual Formalisms, Human Factors, Architectural Visualization, and Visualization in Practice. They cover a comprehensive range of software visualization topics, including *Visual programming theory and techniques for rapid software prototyping and graph visualization, including distributed programming; *Visual formalisms such as Flowchart, Event Graph, and Process Communication Graph; *Graph-oriented distributed programming; *Program visualization for software understanding, testing/debugging and maintenance; *Object-oriented re-design based on legacy procedural software; *Cognitive models for designing software exploration tools; *Human comprehensibility of visual modeling diagrams in UML; *UML extended with pattern compositions for software reuse; *Visualization of software architecture and Web architecture for better understanding; *Visual programming and program visualization for music synthesizers; *Drawing diagrams nicely using clustering techniques for software engineering.
