## About these proceedings

### Introduction

This volume gives the proceedings of ISAAC '92, the Third
International Symposium on Algorithms and Computation, held
in Nagoya, Japan, December 1992.
The first symposium was held in Tokyo in 1990, as the first
international symposium organized by SIGAL (Special Interest
Groupon Algorithms in the Information Processing Society of
Japan) to serve as anannual international forum in Asia for
researchers in the area of algorithms. The second symposium
was held in Taipei, Taiwan in 1991, where it was decided
that computation would be included in the main scope of the
symposium and that ISAAC would be its name.
ISAAC '92 focuses on topics in design and analysis of
algorithms, computational complexity, and theory of
computation, including algorithms and data structures,
parallel/distributed computing, automata and formal
languages, probabilistic/approximation algorithms,
computability and complexity, term rewriting systems, and
computational geometry. The volume contains the accepted
contributed papers and the invited papers.
