Book Description

Addressed to readers at different levels of programming expertise, this book offers a departure from current books that focus on small programming examples requiring additional instruction in order to extend them to full programming projects.

It shows how to design and organize moderate to large Prolog programs, providing a collection of eight programming projects, each with a particular application, and illustrating how a Prolog program was written to solve the application. These range from a simple learning program to designing a database for molecular biology to natural language generation from plans and stream data analysis.

Prolog is unique and demands a unique way of looking at computer programming in general. It is dated a bit in that it does not cover all the latest developments in Prolog/AI research but no other Prolog books provide the foundational understanding that it does. Get this one for a solid foundation and then build on it with others.

About the Authors
  • Leon S. Sterling is Director of Research and Chair of Software Innovation and Engineering at the University of Melbourne. He is the coauthor of The Art of Prolog (second edition, MIT Press, 1994) and the editor of The Practice of Prolog (MIT Press, 1990).

  • The Power of Prolog (Markus Triska)

    The goal of this book is to bridge the gap between the great traditional Prolog textbooks of the past and the language as it currently is. It is meant to teach Prolog as a practical programming tool and so it concentrates on using Prolog to solve interesting problems.

  • Learn Prolog Now! (Patrick Blackburn, et al.)

    This book has became one of the most popular introductions to the Prolog programming language, an introduction prized for its clarity and down-to-earth approach. The emphasis in this book is on using Prolog effectively.

  • Logic, Programming and Prolog, 2nd Edition (Ulf Nilsson, et al)

    This book introduces major new developments in a continually evolving field and includes such topics as concurrency and equational and constraint logic programming. What sets this book apart from others on logic programming is the breadth of its coverage.

  • Prolog for Programmers (Feliks Kluznia, et al)

    This book is intended as an introduction to Prolog for people familiar with conventional programming languages. It explains in terms of programming constructs and techniques found in Pascal.

  • Prolog Programming in Depth (Michael A. Covington)

    This book covers the Prolog programming language thoroughly with an emphasis on building practical application software, not just theory. Readers build several types of expert systems, as well as natural language processing software and utilities.

  • An Introduction to Logic Programming Through Prolog (J. Spivey)

    This is one of the few texts that combines three essential theses in the study of logic programming: logic, programming, and implementation. The book contains a concise and self-contained account of the logic behind Prolog programming.

  • Prolog Programming: A First Course (Paul Brna)

    The course for which these notes are designed is intended for undergraduate students who have some programming experience and may even have written a few programs in Prolog. The emphasis in this book is on using Prolog effectively.

  • Prolog Experiments in Discrete Math, Logic, and Computability

    This book contains programming experiments that are designed to reinforce the learning of discrete mathematics, logic, and computability. The Prolog programming language is the tool used for the experiments in this book.
