This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Algebraic Methodology and Software Technology, AMAST '96, held in Munich, Germany, in July 1996.
The book presents 25 revised full papers selected from a total of 67 submissions and 23 system demonstrations; also included are six invited talks and six invited presentations of the AMAST Education Day on industrial applications of formal methods. The full papers are organized in topical sections on theorem proving, algebraic specification, concurrent and reactive systems, program verification, logic programming and term rewriting, and algebraic and logical foundations.
