Treelike Structures

  • Samuele Giraudo


This second chapter is devoted to present general notions about treelike structures. We present more precisely the ones appearing in the algebraic and combinatorial context of nonsymmetric operads. Rewrite systems of syntax trees are exposed, as well as methods to prove their termination and their confluence.
