Number of pages: 100
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 re-examines computer science, giving priority to resource tradeoffs and complexity classifications over the structure of machines and their relationships to languages. This viewpoint is motivated by more realistic computational models.

The book on the fundamental algebraic structures in the mathematics of program construction focusing the algebraic properties of recursion and how these are applied to the generic solution of programming problems. The tutorial covers fixed point calculus.

An introduction to the most important ideas in computing. It focuses on how to describe information processes by defining procedures, how to analyze the costs required to carry out a procedure, and the limits of what can be computed mechanically.

These lecture notes give a brief introduction to logic, with including the resolution method of theorem-proving and its relation to the programming language Prolog. Formal logic is used for specifying and verifying computer systems.
