Module description

The course consists of taught material and practical work. The taught material introduces the fundamentals of the Prolog programming language. Practical work consists of programming exercises in Prolog. Early exercises are designed to develop a core understanding of programming in Prolog, especially: the importance of unification in the understanding of Prolog; the nature of search in Prolog and alternative search strategies; common recursive program structures, especially for list processing; design of Prolog programs. Later exercises are designed to develop skills in applying Prolog in practical situations.
