This volume contains a selection of papers presented at thethird European Computer Aided Systems Theory workshop,EUROCAST '93, held in Spain in February 1993. The workshopemphasizes interdisciplinarity with the specificgoal ofcreating a synergy between fields such as systems theory,computer science, systems engineering and related areas. Thecontributions in this volume are strongly related to currentproblems in CAST research. They emphasize an engineeringpoint of view concerning systems theory. Since the computeris an essential instrument in CAST research, there are closerelations to specific topics incomputer science. The papersare grouped into parts on systems theory and systemstechnology, specific methods, and applications.
