This volume contains the proceedings of the 14th International Colloquium on Automata Languages and Programming, organized by the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS) and held in Karlsruhe, July 13-17, 1987. The papers report on original research in theoretical computer science and cover topics such as algorithms and data structures, automata and formal languages, computability and complexity theory, semantics of programming languages, program specification, transformation and verification, theory of data bases, logic programming, theory of logical design and layout, parallel and distributed computation, theory of concurrency, symbolic and algebraic computation, term rewriting systems, cryptography, and theory of robotics. The authors are young scientists and leading experts in these areas.
