There are essentially two ways to attack the problem of the "correctness" of program transformations: transformation rules can be given as axioms — thus determining (parts of) the semantics of the language — or they can be verified with respect to a particular definition of the semantics. This classification is taken here as a guide-line for a systematic survey of transformation rules.
