This volume contains the proceedings of the vVorkshop on Trees held in Versailles on 14-16 June 1995. Why: a workshop on trees? Two main reasons motivated this workshop. First, the current plethora of tree representations in branching processes which has be­ come obvious by the Minneapolis IMA Congress Classica] and Modern Branching Processes in 1994. But this would not have been sufficient to organize an "n-th" congress on branching processes. Secondly, regular discussions with researchers in algebra and computing sciences at the University of Versailles and at INRIA (lnstitut National de Recherche en Informatique et Automatique) convinced us it would be fruitful to offer the workers in these different fields the opportunity to exchange their points of view on the subject. The organizers being probabilists, a large part of the meeting (two sessions) was devoted t<_20_probability20_theor3a_y20_28_not20_only20_branching20_processes29_.20_nevertheless2c_20_the20_other20_three20_sessions20_focused20_on20_algorithms2c_20_on20_ultrametric20_and20_combinatorial20_aspects20_of20_trees20_and20_on20_disordered20_systems.20_most20_papers20_in20_this20_volume20_are20_both20_of20_high20_level20_and20_of20_pedagogical20_interest.20_they20_are20_intended20_for20_a20_large20_public2c_20_including20_graduate20_students20_looking20_for20_an20_initiation20_to20_tree20_structures.20_the20_papers20_have20_been20_grouped20_into20_four20_sections3a_20_-20_disordered20_systems2c_20_-20_probability20_and20_trees2c_20_-20_large20_deviations2c_20_-20_ultrametric20_and20_algebraic20_aspects20_of20_trees.20_some20_of20_the20_speakers20_are2c_20_unfortunately2c_20_not20_represented20_in20_this20_volume. probability="" _theor3a_y="" _28_not="" only="" branching="" _processes29_.="" _nevertheless2c_="" the="" other="" three="" sessions="" focused="" on="" _algorithms2c_="" ultrametric="" and="" combinatorial="" aspects="" of="" trees="" disordered="" systems.="" most="" papers="" in="" this="" volume="" are="" both="" high="" level="" pedagogical="" interest.="" they="" intended="" for="" a="" large="" _public2c_="" including="" graduate="" students="" looking="" an="" initiation="" to="" tree="" structures.="" have="" been="" grouped="" into="" four="" _sections3a_="" -="" _systems2c_="" _trees2c_="" _deviations2c_="" algebraic="" trees.="" some="" speakers="" _are2c_="" _unfortunately2c_="" not="" represented="">
