Logic Programming in Action: Second International Logic Programming Summer School, Lpss '92 Zurich, Switzerland, September 7-11, 1992 : Proceedings (Lecture Notes in Computer Science)
Logic programming enjoys a privileged position. It is firmly rooted in mathematical logic, yet it is also immensely practical, as a growing number of users in universities, research institutes, and industry are realizing. Logic programming languages, specifically Prolog, have turned out to be ideal as prototyping and application development languages. This volume presents the proceedings of the Second Logic Programming Summer School, LPSS '92. The First Logic Programming Summer School, LPSS '90, addressed the theoretical foundations of logic programming. This volume focuses on the relationship between theory and practice, and on practical applications. The introduction to the volume is by R. Kowalski, one of the pioneers in the field. The following papers are organized into sections on constraint logic programming, deductive databases and expert systems, processing of natural and formal languages, software engineering, and education.
