Abstract: In this paper, we develop a new mutation testing technique called Interlocutory Mutation Testing (IMT) that mitigates the equivalent mutant problem in the presence of coincidental correctness and non-determinism. The accuracy of IMT was evaluated; it obtained a classification accuracy of 93.33% for non-equivalent mutants and 100% for equivalent mutants in a non-deterministic system with coincidental correctness.
