Calder M, Kolberg M, Magill E & Reiff-Marganiec S (2003) Feature interaction: a critical review and considered forecast. Computer Networks, 41 (1), pp. 115-141. https://doi.org/10.1016/S1389-1286%2802%2900352-3
The state of the art of the field of feature interactions in telecommunications services is reviewed, concentrating on three major research trends: software engineering approaches, formal methods, and on line techniques. Then, the impact of the new, emerging architectures on the feature interaction problem is considered. A forecast is made about how research in feature interactions needs to readjust to address the new challenges posed by the emerging architectures.
