Abstract: The quest of the “best formal solver” available is still open and the lack of a clear comparison between the different numerical methods proposed by the community does not facilitate a conclusion. This work presents a reference paradigm for the characterization of formal solvers, based on the concepts of order of accuracy, stability and computational cost. This overview aims to facilitate the comprehension of the advantages and weaknesses of the already existing formal solvers and of those yet to come.
