    a wide range of potentially non-deterministic methods of replacing subterms of a formula with other terms

Wikipedia

  1. Rewriting

    In mathematics, computer science, and logic, rewriting covers a wide range of methods of replacing subterms of a formula with other terms. Such methods may be achieved by rewriting systems (also known as rewrite systems, rewrite engines, or reduction systems). In their most basic form, they consist of a set of objects, plus relations on how to transform those objects. Rewriting can be non-deterministic. One rule to rewrite a term could be applied in many different ways to that term, or more than one rule could be applicable. Rewriting systems then do not provide an algorithm for changing one term to another, but a set of possible rule applications. When combined with an appropriate algorithm, however, rewrite systems can be viewed as computer programs, and several theorem provers and declarative programming languages are based on term rewriting.

Examples of rewriting in a Sentence

  1. The Witcher:

    As a lifelong fan of fantasy, I am beyond excited to tell the story' The Witcher : Blood Origin.' A question has been burning in my mind ever since I first read The Witcher books -- What was the Elven world really like before the cataclysmic arrival of the humans ? i've always been fascinated by the rise and fall of civilizations, how science, discovery, and culture flourish right before that fall. How vast swathes of knowledge are lost forever in such a short time, often compounded by colonization and a rewriting of history. Leaving only fragments of a civilization's true story behind.
