Keywords: Software engineering, object oriented design, cohesion, coupling, modularity.

Abstract

By knowing the great importance taken by the questioning towards Software Engineering and the central part that reusability plays in this, presition and formalization become key concepts such as cohesion, coupling and modularity.

This work proposes a mathematical formalization of these key concepts on algebraic topology and take us throught formal modular design and facilitates concept mesuring.
