To facilitate research in the eld of reverse engineering and system renovation we have compiled an annotated bibliography. We put the contributions not only in alphabetical order but also grouped by topic so that readers focusing on a certain topic can read their annotations in the alphabetical listing. We also compiled an annotated list of pointers to information about reverse engineering and system renovation that can be reached via Internet. For the sake of ease we also incorporated a brief introduction to the eld of reverse engineering. note: The authors were all in part sponsored by bank ABN AMRO, software house DPFinance, and the Dutch Ministery of Economical AAairs via the Senter Project #ITU95017 "SOS Resolver". The last author was also supported by the Netherlands Computer Science Research Foundation (SION) with nancial support from the Netherlands Organization for Scientiic Research (NWO), project Interactive tools for program understanding, 612-33-002.
