Editorial Reviews

The most impressive aspect of the book "Infinite Words" by Dominique Perrin and Jean-Eric Pin is the extent of its coverage.It is a virtually complete compendium of everything to do with infinite words: infinite-time automata; connections to semigroups, topology and logic; infinite games; bi-infinite words; infinite trees. Before holding this book in my hand, I was not fully conscious of the extent of the progress in this field in the last twenty years. Robert McNaughton
