Term Rewriting Systems

  • Enno Ohlebusch


In this chapter we will present the basic concepts of term rewriting that are needed in this book. More details on term rewriting, its applications, and related subjects can be found in the textbook of Baader and Nipkow [BN98]. Readers versed in German are also referred to the textbooks of Avenhaus [Ave95], Bündgen [Bün98], and Drosten [Dro89]. Moreover, there are several survey articles [HO80, DJ90, Klo92, Pla93] that can also be consulted.
