Verification: Confirmation through examination of a given item and provision of objective evidence that it fulfills specific requirements. Comparing an activity, a process, or a product with the corresponding requirements or specifications.

Verification = Theoretical (the old "According to my calculations...")


Validation = Actual as determined by testing (often done on a prototype, but in some cases validation is done through actual use - depends upon the product and the industry).

Note: Not to be confused with calibration of a measuring system as described in the below links.
