This book constitutes the strictly refereed proceedings of the 15th Annual Symposium on Theoretical Aspects of Computer Science, STACS 98, held in Paris, France, in February 1998. The volume presents three invited surveys together with 52 revised full papers selected from a total of 155 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on algorithms and data structures, logic, complexity, and automata and formal languages.
