This volume contains the proceedings of the Third International Conference on Algebraic and Logic Programming, held in Pisa, Italy, September 2-4, 1992. Like the two previous conferences in Germany in 1988 and France in 1990, the third conference aims at strengthening the connections betweenalgebraic techniques and logic programming. On the one hand, logic programming has been very successful during the last decades and more andmore systems compete in enhancing its expressive power. On the other hand, concepts like functions, equality theory, and modularity are particularly well handled in an algebraic framework. Common foundations of both approaches have recently been developed, and this conference is a forum for people from both areas to exchange ideas, results, and experiences. The book covers the following topics: semantics ofalgebraic and logic programming; integration of functional and logic programming; term rewriting, narrowing, and resolution; constraintlogic programming and theorem proving; concurrent features in algebraic and logic programming languages; and implementation issues.
