Trees are among the most fundamental and ubiquitous structures in mathematics and computer science. The notion of "tree" appears in many seemingly different areas from graph theory to universal algebra to logic. Tree languages and automata on trees have been studied extensively since the 1960s from both a purely mathematical and application point of view. Though the theory of tree automata and tree languages may have come into existence by generalizing string automata and languages, but it could not have stayed alive for long as a mere generalization. Apart from its intrinsic interest, this theory has found several applications and offers new perspectives to various parts of mathematical linguistics. It has been applied to the study of databases and XML schema languages, and provides tools for syntactic pattern recognition. When trees are defined as terms, universal algebra becomes directly applicable to tree automata and tree languages and, on the other hand, the theory of tree automata and tree languages suggests new notions and problems to universal algebra. In this book, the theory has been studied from the algebraic viewpoint.

The Symposium on Logical Foundations of Computer Science series provides a forum for the fast-growing body of work in the logical foundations of computer science, e.g., those areas of fundamental theoretical logic related to computer science. The LFCS series began with “Logic at Botik,” Pereslavl-Zalessky,1989, which was co-organized by Albert R. Meyer (MIT) and Michael Taitslin (Tver). After that, organization passed to Anil Nerode. Currently LFCS is governed by a Steering Committee consisting of Anil Nerode (General Chair), Stephen Cook, Dirk van Dalen, Yuri Matiyasevich, John McCarthy, J. Alan Robinson, Gerald Sacks, and Dana Scott. The 2009 Symposium on Logical Foundations of Computer Science (LFCS 2009) took place in Howard Johnson Plaza Resort, Deer?eld Beach, Florida, USA, during January 3–6. This volume contains the extended abstracts of talks selected by the Program Committee for presentation at LFCS 2009. The scope of the symposium is broad and contains constructive mathematics and type theory; automata and automatic structures; computability and r- domness; logical foundations of programming; logical aspects of computational complexity; logic programmingand constraints;automated deduction and int- active theorem proving; logical methods in protocol and program veri?cation; logical methods in program speci?cation and extraction; domain theory l- ics; logical foundations of database theory; equational logic and term rewriting; lambda andcombinatorycalculi;categoricallogicandtopologicalsemantics;l- ear logic; epistemic and temporal logics; intelligent and multiple agent system logics; logics of proof and justi?cation; nonmonotonic reasoning; logic in game theory and social software; logic of hybrid systems; distributed system logics;

The volume is the outgrowth of a workshop with the same title held at MSRI in the week of November 13-17, 1989, and for those who did not get it, Logic from Computer Science is the converse of Logic in Computer Science, the full name of the highly successful annual LICS conferences. We meant to have a conference which would bring together the LICS commu nity with some of the more traditional "mathematical logicians" and where the emphasis would be on the flow of ideas from computer science to logic rather than the other way around. In a LICS talk, sometimes, the speaker presents a perfectly good theorem about (say) the A-calculus or finite model theory in terms of its potential applications rather than its (often more ob vious) intrinsic, foundational interest and intricate proof. This is not meant to be a criticism; the LICS meetings are, after all, organized by the IEEE Computer Society. We thought, for once, it would be fun to see what we would get if we asked the speakers to emphasize the relevance of their work for logic rather than computer science and to point out what is involved in the proofs. I think, mostly, it worked. In any case, the group of people represented as broad a selection of logicians as I have seen in recent years, and the quality of the talks was (in my view) exceptionally, unusually high. I learned a lot and (I think) others did too.

This book provides foundations for software specification and formal software development from the perspective of work on algebraic specification, concentrating on developing basic concepts and studying their fundamental properties. These foundations are built on a solid mathematical basis, using elements of universal algebra, category theory and logic, and this mathematical toolbox provides a convenient language for precisely formulating the concepts involved in software specification and development. Once formally defined, these notions become subject to mathematical investigation, and this interplay between mathematics and software engineering yields results that are mathematically interesting, conceptually revealing, and practically useful. The theory presented by the authors has its origins in work on algebraic specifications that started in the early 1970s, and their treatment is comprehensive. This book contains five kinds of material: the requisite mathematical foundations; traditional algebraic specifications; elements of the theory of institutions; formal specification and development; and proof methods. While the book is self-contained, mathematical maturity and familiarity with the problems of software engineering is required; and in the examples that directly relate to programming, the authors assume acquaintance with the concepts of functional programming. The book will be of value to researchers and advanced graduate students in the areas of programming and theoretical computer science.

This book presents a set of 14 papers accompanying the lectures of leading researchers given at the 8th edition of the International School on Formal Methods for the Design of Computer, Communication and Software Systems, SFM 2008, held in Bertinoro, Italy in June 2008. SFM 2008 was devoted to formal techniques for computational systems biology and covered several aspects of the field, including computational models, calculi and logics for biological systems, and verification and simulation methods. The first part of this volume comprises nine papers based on regular lectures, the second part of this volume comprises five papers based on talks given by people involved in the Italian BISCA research project on Bio-Inspired Systems and Calculi with Applications.
