This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Formal Engineering Methods, ICFEM 2012, held in Kyoto, Japan, November 2012. The 31 revised full papers together with 3 invited talks presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 85 submissions. The papers address all current issues in formal methods and their applications in software engineering. They are organized in topical sections on concurrency, applications of formal methods to new areas, quantity and probability, formal verification, modeling and development methodology, temporal logics, abstraction and refinement, tools, as well as testing and runtime verification.Firstly, local variables of a procedure cannot escape from their lexical scope; therefore, they are not allowed to appear in post-conditions. ... only exists in pre- conditions and updates to these parameters need not be specified in postconditions. Thirdly, for each procedure with its R-complete pre/post- conditions, updates to its reference parameters must be specified in its post- condition via primed notations.
