## About this book

### Introduction

This volume contains 15 papers from research areas where Japanese theoretical computer science is particularly strong. Many are about logic, and its realization and applications to computer science; others concern synthesis, transformation and implementation of programming languages, and complexity and coding theory. Not coincidentally, all the authors are either former students or close colleagues of Satoru Takasu, professor and director at the Research Institute of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Kyoto. The purpose of this volume is to celebrate Professor Takasu's influence on theoretical computer science in Japan and worldwide by his research, his philosophy, and his advising of students. The breadth, depth and quality of the papers are characteristic of his interests and activities.
