  • About this book

This volume presents the proceedings of the Sixth International Conference on Rewriting Techniques and Applications, RTA-95, held in Kaiserslautern, Germany in April 1995.
The 27 full revised papers were selected from a total of 87 submissions. In addition there are 9 system descriptions and two problem sets, one contributed by Mark E. Stickel and Hantao Zhang and another by Nachum Dershowitz, Jean-Pierre Jouannaud and Jan Willem Klop.
The volume addresses all current aspects of rewriting techniques and their applications and thus defines the state-of-the-art in this active field of research.
