**Rule-based Computation and Deduction**

by Helene Kirchner, Pierre-Etienne Moreau

**Publisher**: ESSLLI 2001**Number of pages**: 100

**Description**:

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.
