The theory and practice of term rewriting is now well-established and the focus of growing interest in the world of computer science. This book brings together a collection of original research contributions and surveys of existing knowledge. Some of the most significant developments in term rewriting theory are reviewed, as well as a history of the most important discovery in the field, namely the notion of a critical pair and its natural consequence, the completion algorithm. Many of the new ideas developed have important applications in other fields of theoretical computing.
