Heisenbug - Definition

Heisenbug is a whimsical computer programming jargon term for a software bug that seems to disappear or alter its behavior when one attempts to study it.[1] The term is a pun on the name of Werner Heisenberg, the physicist who first asserted the observer effect of quantum mechanics, which states that the act of observing a system inevitably alters its state.

Similar terms, such as bohrbug, mandelbug,[2][3][4] and schrödinbug[5][6] have been occasionally proposed for other kinds of unusual software bugs, sometimes in jest;[7][8] however (unlike "heisenbug") they are not as widely known or used.[9]

Heisenbugs occur because common attempts to debug a program, such as inserting output statements or running it in a debugger, usually modify the code, change the memory addresses of variables and the timing of its execution.

Heisenbug is a whimsical computer programming jargon term for a software bug that seems to disappear or alter its behavior when one attempts to study it.
