This volume contains the papers presented at the 10th International Conference on Automated Deduction (CADE-10). CADE is the major forum at which research on all aspects of automated deduction is presented. Although automated deduction research is also presented at more general artificial intelligence conferences, the CADE conferences have no peer in the concentration and quality of their contributions to this topic. The papers included range from theory to implementation and experimentation, from propositional to higher-order calculi and nonclassical logics; they refine and use a wealth of methods including resolution, paramodulation, rewriting, completion, unification and induction; and they work with a variety of applications including program verification, logic programming, deductive databases, and theorem proving in many domains. The volume also contains abstracts of 20 implementations of automated deduction systems. The authors of about half the papers are from the United States, many are from Western Europe, and many too are from the rest of the world. The proceedings of the 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th CADE conferences are published as Volumes 87, 138, 170, 230, 310 in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science.
