This text first introduces the concept of rewriting which is behind rule-based systems. Then the rewriting logic and the rewriting calculus are defined and shown to be especially suited to describing concurrent and non-deterministic computations.

The book explores questions and terminologies concerning programs, computers, and computation. The exploration reduces to a study of mathematical theories, such as those of automata and formal languages, theories interesting in their own right.
