It includes three sections devoted to structural testing, fault-based testing, and error-based testing.
Thus it builds a bridge between fault-based testing and error-based testing, which is discussed in Section 4.
But error-based testing requires test cases selected not only within the subdomains, but also on the boundaries, at vertices, and just off the vertices or the boundaries in each of the adjacent subdomains, because these places are traditionally thought to be error-prone.
