Over the course of history, the term "functional programming" has grown more precise and technical as the field has matured. %���� Such languages are similar to the SQL database language.

The history of logic and computing suggests a programming language that is equally natural. dB�ZAD�����C{��D��`+l���-�8�gxQB��7I��$�p��7��������:�3���� �Uۢ�+���ʷ�=�aBnK�ѹ�آz�����J��2fu��������ή%�y̧R O�����\)��A&�� Other articles where Logic programming language is discussed: computer programming language: Declarative languages: Logic programming languages, of which PROLOG (programming in logic) is the best known, state a program as a set of logical relations (e.g., a grandparent is the parent of a parent of someone). However, he never provided an adequate definition. Logic programming has a long and interesting history with a rich literature comprising newsletters, journals, monographs, and workshop and conference proceedings. Nevertheless, logic programming (like functional programming) can be a useful programming idiom. It’s also worth noting the Software Heritage Acquisition Process [9], a process designed by Software Heritage [5] in collaboration with the University of Pisa to curate and archive historic software source code. 4 0 obj A web site with the materials I’ve found is available [6]. x��[�s�6�����(�D0��#�э��i{m/����q���h�=�T�H���v�X�蔌d �n��p������~�����z�_���}�jx��OJ��M�a>��. Using this characterization, my colleagues and I were able to prove proposed that Logic Programming be characterized as "the logical deduction of computational steps". The web site is hosted by the Computer History Museum [8], which welcomes donations of historic physical and digital artifacts. endobj About a year ago I began a project to collect and preserve primary and secondary source materials (including specifications, source code, manuals, and papers discussing design and implementation) from the history of logic programming, beginning with Marseille Prolog. Unfortunately, the early years of logic programming are not as consistently preserved. However, he never provided an adequate definition. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. And a number of other people have generously contributed time and artifacts; they are listed in the Acknowledgements section of [6] as well as in individual entries of that web site. The term "Logic Programming" was popularized by Robert Kowalski beginning in the 1970's. <>>> « Carl Hewitt Articles and Sites | The language, called lambda calculus, is in exact correspondence with a formulation of the laws of reason, called natural deduction. I I’m posting it here first because of the uncertain publication schedule of that newsletter and my desire to announce a new website: Prolog and Logic Programming Historical Sources Archive. Required fields are marked *. 1 0 obj History of Logic Programming ssnstudentclubit Uncategorized July 27, 2019 2 Minutes The use of mathematical logic to represent and execute computer programs is also a feature of the lambda calculus, developed by Alonzo Church in the 1930s. Therefore mathematical logic cannot implement concurrent computation in open systems. endobj %PDF-1.5 Main Logic Programming was used I would appreciate suggestions for additional material [7], especially for the early years (say up through the mid 1980s). endobj as the foundation of the Japanese Fifth Generation Computing Project the logical deduction of computational steps, Carl Hewitt's Censorship and Harrassment by the Wikipedia », Carl Hewitt's Censorship and Harassment by the Wikipedia. | Carl Hewitt's Censorship and Harrassment by the Wikipedia ». and 8850 km. implemented using Logic Programming. 3 Responses to “A Possible Future History of Logic Programming” Andre Vellino Says: June 16, 2008 at 11:57 am | Reply. Much of that literature is accessible online, at least to people with the appropriate subscriptions. in the 1970's. Publications can provide overviews and algorithms, but ultimately the details are in the source code. <> that Logic Programming is not computationally universal. Over the course of history, the term "functional programming" has grown more precise and technical as the field has matured.
