Rule-based Computation and Deduction
by Helene Kirchner, Pierre-Etienne Moreau
Publisher: ESSLLI 2001
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.

These original papers on cellular automata and complexity provide a highly readable account of what has become a major new field of science, with important implications for computer science, physics, economics, biology, and many other areas.

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.

We will first present the most standard computational challenges met in Bayesian Statistics, focusing primarily on mixture estimation and on model choice issues, and then relate these problems with computational solutions.
