This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 4th European Symposium on Algorithms, ESA '96, held in Barcelona, Spain, in September 1996. The book presents 40 revised full papers selected from 124 submissions; also are included extended abstracts of two invited presentations. The papers included cover all research areas on algorithms and their analysis as it is carried out in the fields of computer science, discrete applied and algorithmic mathematics, operations research, and all other areas of algorithms-oriented research, design and analysis.
