About this book


Beginning with an informal introduction to language equations, this book presents a framework for a general theory for solving systems of equations and relations between languages. Classical language equations, generalized derivatives, Boolean language equations, and implicit equations are presented systematically. An exploration of mixed systems and open problems rounds out the presentation.
