This volume presents the proceedings of the 14th International Conference on the Foundations of Software Technology and Theoretical Computer Science, FST&TCS-14, held in Madras, India in December 1994. Besides the five invited papers by well-known researchers, it includes 31 full refereed research papers selected out of a total of 140 submissions. The papers contribute to the whole area of theoretical computer science with an emphasis on algorithms and complexity. Other topics covered are program semantics, program verification, formal logic, computational geometry, concurrency, unification, and discrete mathematics.
