**DESCRIPTION: **
Prominent experts present papers which discuss problems regarding this subject. Coverage includes case studies in the translation of logics for second-order and propositional dynamic logic; many-sorted algebras and
equational logic; logical foundations of artificial intelligence along with a variety of methods that exist to encode information; program verification techniques such as Floyd-Hoare, intermittent assertion and temporal logic of programs.

**CONTENTS: **

ALGEBRAIC METHODS. Equational Specifications for Computable Data Types: Six Hidden Functions Suffice and Other Sufficiency Bounds (J. Bergstra & J. Tucker). On Bounds for the Specification of Finite Data Types by Means of Equations and Conditional Equations (J. Bergstra & J. Tucker). Many-Sorted Logics and Algebraic Semantics (I. Guessarian).
