This volume contains the final revised versions of the best papers presented at the First International Workshop on Higher-Order Algebra, Logic, and Term Rewriting (HOA '93), held in Amsterdam in September 1993. Higher-Order methods are increasingly applied in functional and logic programming languages, as well as in specification and verification of programs and hardware. The 15 full papers in this volume are devoted to the algebra and model theory of higher-order languages, computational logic techniques including resolution and term rewriting, and specification and verification case studies; in total they provide a competently written overview of current research and suggest new research directions in this vigourous area.
