From the reviews:
"The book Advanced Topics in Term Rewriting (ATITR) begins with an Abstract Reduction System ARS. ... there are not many textbooks written in English on term rewriting. ... if you like mathematics, already know the basics of term rewriting and you are a researcher or a postgraduate then this book is definitely recommended." (Nimish Shah, Journal of Functional Programming, Vol. 16 (2), 2006)
"A well-written overview of recent research with many references to the literature, and hence has clearly an added value over a collection of papers. ... contains a pleasant surprise in the form of a chapter on termination of logic programs. ... it can be very well used for a seminar for advanced students who already know the basics of term rewriting. ... it is written in a clear and rigorous way. ... I very much recommend the book for researchers and advanced students ... ." (Femke van Raamsdonk, Theory and Practice of Logic Programming, Vol. 4 (4), 2004)
"The book starts with some motivating examples of Term Rewriting Systems (TRSs) (e.g. `coffee can problem'). ... There are other books on TRSs but these are in fact introductory textbooks whereas Ohlebusch's book covers several important fields in term rewriting that go beyond the scope of an introductory book - especially fields to which the author himself made essential contributions. In this way this monograph is an outstanding one, suitable for all Computer scientists who study and use term rewriting." (A. Widiger, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 999 (24), 2002)
