Product Overview

Within the field of logic programming there have been numerous attemptsto transform grammars into logic programs. This book describes a complementaryapproach that views logic programs as grammars and shows how this new presentationof the foundations of logic programming, based on the notion of proof trees, canenrich the field.The authors approach facilitates discussion of grammatical aspectsof, and introduces new kinds of semantics for, definite programs. They surveyrelevant grammatical formalisms and provide a comprehensive introduction to thewell-known attribute grammars and van Wijngaarden grammars. A formal comparison ofdefinite programs to these grammars allows the authors to identify interestinggrammatical concepts.The book also includes a presentation of verification methodsfor definite programs derived from verification methods for attribute grammars, andan analysis of the occur-check problem as an example of how the grammatical view oflogic programming can be applied.Pierre Deransart is Research Director atINRIA-Rocquencourt, Le Chesnay Cedex, France. Jan Maluszynski is Professor in theDepartment of Computer and Information Science at Link?ping University, Sweden.Contents: Preliminaries. Foundations. Grammatical Extensions of LogicPrograms.
