Download Logic Programming: Operational Semantics and Proof Theory by James H. Andrews PDF

By James H. Andrews

Dr Andrews the following offers a homogeneous therapy of the semantics (operational and logical) of either theoretical and useful good judgment programming languages. He indicates how the rift among thought and perform in good judgment programming will be bridged. this is often completed by means of accurately characterizing the best way 'depth-first' look for recommendations to a logical formulation - the standard method in such a lot useful languages - is incomplete. Languages that practice 'breadth-first' searches replicate extra heavily the speculation underlying good judgment programming languages. Researchers drawn to good judgment programming or semantics, in addition to man made intelligence seek recommendations, should want to seek advice this publication because the simply resource for a few crucial and new rules within the region.

Example text

They are intended to be used with the "cut" rule from LKE in the derivation of the success and failure of goal formulae, and in later sections I will prove that this set of laws is complete for this purpose. The axioms can be seen as distributive laws, because they define how the signs "distribute" over the goal formula connectives. Indeed, the laws for the F signs resemble De Morgan's laws of the distribution of negation over the first order connectives. 1. Predicate Unfoldings and the FN sign First, some more elucidation of the purpose of the FN sign is necessary; this will motivate the definition of predicate unfoldings of formulae, which will play an important role in the parallel axioms.

Otherwise, let S be V -> A, F N ( D i ) , . . , FN(Dm), where the A formulae are all equalities. Cases are on D i . We will derive sequents which must also be valid, and which have fewer connectives and equality formulae within FN signs. Di = (s = t): Assume that S is valid, and let S1 be S with FN(s = t) taken out of the consequent, and s = t put into the antecedent. If Sf were invalid, it would be because there is a 0 such that s0 = t0 but none of FN(D2)0... FN(Dm)0 were valid. But then FN(s = t) would not be valid under 6 either, so S would be invalid; contradiction.

4, presented as a set of axioms, which are in turn just a special kind of rule. We will refer to this set of rules as PAR, since they have to do with the parallel connectives; they are intended to be used in conjunction with the rules from LKE, and we will refer to the combined system as LKE+PAR. 4, classified by the sign involved, the side of the sequent on which we will generally use them, and the connective immediately within the sign. For examples of the use of LKE+PAR to derive sequents, see Appendix A.
