Logic Programming is the name given to a distinctive style of programming, very different from that of conventional programming languages such as C++ and Java. By far the most widely used Logic Programming language is Prolog. Prolog is a good choice for developing complex applications, especially in the field of Artificial Intelligence.
Logic Programming with Prolog does not assume that the reader is an experienced
programmer or has a background in Mathematics, Logic or Artificial Intelligence.
It starts from scratch and aims to arrive at the point where quite powerful
programs can be written in the language. It is intended both as a textbook
for an introductory course and as a self-study book. On completion readers
will know enough to use Prolog in their own research or practical projects.
Each chapter has self-assessment exercises so that readers may check their
own progress. A glossary of the technical terms used completes the book.
This second edition has been revised to be fully compatible with SWI-Prolog, a popular multi-platform public domain implementation of the language. Additional chapters have been added covering the use of Prolog to analyse English sentences and to illustrate how Prolog can be used to implement applications of an 'Artificial Intelligence' kind.
