Abstract
During the last years unification theory has become an important subfield of automated reasoning and logic programming. The aim of the present paper is to relate unification theory to classical work on equation solving in algebra and mathematical logic. We show that many problems in unification theory have their counterpart in classical mathematics and illustrate by various examples how classical results can be used to answer unification-theoretic questions.
