This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 14th Annual Symposium on Theoretical Aspects of Computer Science, STACS 97, held in Lübeck, Germany, in February/March 1997. The 46 revised full papers included were carefully selected from a total of 139 submissions; also included are three invited full papers. The papers presented span the whole scope of theoretical computer science. Among the topics covered are, in particular, algorithms and data structures, computational complexity, automata and formal languages, structural complexity, parallel and distributed systems, parallel algorithms, semantics, specification and verification, logic, computational geometry, cryptography, learning and inductive inference.
