This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Algebraic Methodology and Software Engineering, AMAST'97, held in Sydney, Australia, in December 1997. The volume presents 48 revised full papers selected from an unusually high number of submissions. One of the outstanding features of AMAST is its mix of serious mathematical development of formal methods in software engineering with practical concerns, tools, case studies, and industrial development. The volume addresses all current aspects of formal methods in software engineering and programming methodology, with a certain emphasis on algebraic and logical foundations.
