This Festschrift volume is published in Honor of Yaacov Choueka on the occasion of this 75th birthday. The present three-volumes liber amicorum, several years in gestation, honours this outstanding Israeli computer scientist and is dedicated to him and to his scientific endeavours. Yaacov's research has had a major impact not only within the walls of academia, but also in the daily life of lay users of such technology that originated from his research. An especially amazing aspect of the temporal span of his scholarly work is that half a century after his influential research from the early 1960s, a project in which he is currently involved is proving to be a sensation, as will become apparent from what follows. Yaacov Choueka began his research career in the theory of computer science, dealing with basic questions regarding the relation between mathematical logic and automata theory. From formal languages, Yaacov moved to natural languages. He was a founder of natural-language processing in Israel, developing numerous tools for Hebrew. He is best known for his primary role, together with Aviezri Fraenkel, in the development of the Responsa Project, one of the earliest fulltext retrieval systems in the world. More recently, he has headed the Friedberg Genizah Project, which is bringing the treasures of the Cairo Genizah into the Digital Age. This first part of the three-volume set covers a range of topics in computer science. The papers are grouped in topical sections on: the jubilaris: Yaacov and his oeuvre; theory of computation; science computing and tools for engineering; information retrieval.

Published in honor of Victor L. Selivanov, the 17 articles collected in this volume inform on the latest developments in computability theory and its applications in computable analysis; descriptive set theory and topology; and the theory of omega-languages; as well as non-classical logics, such as temporal logic and paraconsistent logic. This volume will be of interest to mathematicians and logicians, as well as theoretical computer scientists.

Das Buch beschäftigt sich mit der Theorie endlicher Automaten und den klassischen Resultaten wie den Sätzen von Richard Büchi und Michael Rabin. Die vier Teile des Buchs sind den unterschiedlichen Strukturen gewidmet: endliche Wörter, Bäume, endliche und unendliche Bäume. Jeder Teil endet mit Übungsaufgaben zum behandelten Stoff sowie Hinweisen auf weiterführende Literatur. Soweit Vorkenntnisse zur Theorie formaler Sprachen vorhanden sind, kann das Buch ohne weitere Hilfsmittel durchgearbeitet werden.

Formal language theory was fist developed in the mid 1950's in an attempt to develop theories of natural language acquisition. It was soon realized that this theory (particularly the context-free portion) was quite relevant to the artificial languages that had originated in computer science. Since those days, the theory of formal languages has been developed extensively, and has several discernible trends, which include applications to the syntactic analysis of programming languages, program schemes, models of biological systems, and relationships with natural languages.

Automatic sequences are sequences which are produced by a finite automaton. Although they are not random, they may look as being random. This text deals with different aspects of automatic sequences including a general introduction and the algebraic approach to automatic sequences.

Languages and Machines gives a mathematically sound presentation of the theory of computing at the junior and senior level, and is an invaluable tool for scientists investigating the theoretical foundations of computer science. No special mathematical prerequisites are assumed; the theoretical concepts and associated mathematics are made accessible by a "learn as you go" approach that develops an intuitive understanding of the concepts through numerous examples and illustrations.
