This volume presents the proceedings of the Computer Science
Logic Workshop CSL '92, held in Pisa, Italy, in
September/October 1992. CSL '92 was the sixth of the series and the first one held as Annual Conference of the European
Association for Computer Science Logic (EACSL). Full versions of the workshop contributions were collected after their presentation and reviewed. On the basis of 58 reviews,
26 papers were selected for publication, and appear here in revised final form.
Topics covered in the volume include: Turing machines,
linear logic, logic of proofs, optimization problems, lambda calculus, fixpoint logic, NP-completeness, resolution,
transition system semantics, higher order partial functions,
evolving algebras, functional logic programming, inductive definability, semantics of C, classes for a functional language, NP-optimization problems, theory of types and names, sconing and relators, 3-satisfiability, Kleene's slash, negation-complete logic programs, polynomial-time oracle machines, and monadic second-order properties.
