By Pierre Deransart

In the box of good judgment programming there were a number of makes an attempt to rework grammars into common sense courses. This publication describes a complementary procedure that perspectives good judgment courses as grammars and exhibits how this new presentation of the rules of good judgment programming, according to the concept of facts timber, can enhance the field.

The authors' method allows dialogue of grammatical facets of, and introduces new types of semantics for, sure courses. They survey appropriate grammatical formalisms and supply a complete creation to the well known characteristic grammars and van Wijngaarden grammars. a proper comparability of convinced courses to those grammars permits the authors to spot fascinating grammatical concepts.

The publication additionally encompasses a presentation of verification equipment for certain courses derived from verification tools for characteristic grammars, and an research of the occur-check challenge for example of the way the grammatical view of good judgment programming may be applied.

Pierre Deransart is study Director at INRIA-Rocquencourt, Le Chesnay Cedex, France. Jan Maluszynski is Professor within the division of machine and knowledge technological know-how at Linköping collage, Sweden.

Contents: Preliminaries. Foundations. Grammatical Extensions of good judgment courses. characteristic Grammars. characteristic Grammars and common sense Programming. evidence tools. examine of Declarative houses. The Occur-check challenge.

Sample text

N' Every substitution Pn,S is called a standardizing substitution for n in S. A set of skeletons (or derivation trees) is said standardized if there is an associated family of standardizing substitutions for all the different nodes in the sets. E Let n' be the j-th child of n labeled by a clause and let h' be the head of this clause. Denote by eq(n, n') the equation = h'p s, where Pn,S and p ,s are standardizing substitutions. Denote by Eq(S) the set of all equations eq(n,p) where n and p are adjacent complete nodes of the skeleton S.

The other nodes of the tree are the children of the root. Each of them is an incomplete node. The number of the children equals the number of the body atoms of e. Thus there is a one-one correspondence between the incomplete nodes of the tree and the body atoms of C. A unit clause corresponds to a one-node proof tree. 5 shows the clauses of the example program represented as derivation trees. A derivation tree is constructed from instances of clauses. By analogy Copyrighted Material Chapter 2 34 to the clauses we introduce a notion of the head of a derivation tree.

A substitution a is called a renaming of a set of variables V if the domain of a is a subset of V, the range of a is a set of variables and for every distinct x,y E V, xa is distinct from ya. A term t is called a variant of a term s if there exists a renaming a on variables of s such that sa = t. "Being a variant of" is an equivalence relation on terms. Copyrighted Material Chapter 1 16 Substitutions a and 6 are said to be unique up to renaming if there exists a renaming O on Var(a) such that aO = 6.
