Handbook of Theoretical Computer Science, Volume B

Formal Models and Semantics
Edited by J. van Leeuwen


The Handbook of Theoretical Computer Science provides professionals and students with a comprehensive overview of the main results and developments in this rapidly evolving field. Volume A covers models of computation, complexity theory, data structures, and efficient computation in many recognized subdisciplines of theoretical computer science. Volume B takes up the theory of automata and rewriting systems, the foundations of modern programming languages, and logics for program specification and verification, and presents several studies on the theoretic modeling of advanced information processing.The two volumes contain thirty-seven chapters, with extensive chapter references and individual tables of contents for each chapter. There are 5,387 entry subject indexes that include notational symbols, and a list of contributors and affiliations in each volume.


“"Of all the books I have covered in the Forum to date, this setis the most unique and possibly the most useful to the SIGACT community, in support both of teaching and research....The books can be used by anyone wanting simply to gain anunderstanding of one of these areas, or by someone desiring to be in research in a topic, or by instructors wishing to find timely information on a subject they are teaching outside their major areas of expertise." Rocky Ross, SIGACT News”
“"This is a reference which has a place in every computer sciencelibrary." Raymond Lauzzana, Languages of Design
