This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Foundations of Software Technology and Theoretical Computer Science, FSTTCS '95, held in Bangalore, India in December 1995. The volume presents 31 full revised research papers selected from a total of 106 submissions together with full papers of four invited talks. Among the topics covered are algorithms, software technology, functional programming theory, distributed algorithms, term rewriting and constraint logic programming, complexity theory, process algebras, computational geometry, and temporal logics and verification theory.
