Metalogical control for logic programs

Thomas Vasak, John Potter
1985 The Journal of Logic Programming  
a D An alternative computational "model" for logic programs is proposed which is based upon control annotations written in first-order predicate calculus.  ...  The major advantage of such a model is that it is possible to write conceptually transparent programs which otherwise would not have terminated under an existing naive control mechanism. a  ...  FIGURE 2 . 2 Metalogical control for logic programs.  ...

1986 Journal of Research and Practice in Information Technology  
The aims of CML are essentially the same as those of METALOG in that it seeks to provide a metalogical level of control for logic programs.  ...  In METALOG, control infor- mation, specified in another logic program, is viewed as meta-knowledge.  ...

1997 Mathematical Reviews  
The aim of the paper is to provide foundations for amalgamated metalogic programming, a style of logic programming which uses a collection of computation theories that interact with one an- other by querying  ...  The paper presents a simple programming language for rewriting (hyper) graphs in a controlled manner.  ... 

On the declarative and procedural semantics of definite metalogic programs

C. Higgins
1996 Journal of Logic and Computation  
The declarative semantics is an extension of the semantics of logic programs dealing with multiple theories and names.  ...  We define the class of definite metalogic programs, based on a definite clause language, a binary demonstration predicate, and a naming scheme with both primitive and structured names.  ...  I would like to thank Rodney Topor for his comments on earlier drafts of this paper.  ...

Towards a Rational Approach for the Logical Modelling of Inhibition in Metabolic Networks

Oliver Ray
2009 2009 International Conference on Advanced Information Networking and Applications Workshops  
Underlying this work is use of nonmonotonic logic programs to represent and reason about competing inhibitory effects on the net concentrations of metabolites in enzyme-catalysed biochemical networks.  ...  This paper makes two contributions towards the logical modelling of inhibition in metabolic networks. First it exposes the logical inconsistency of an existing state-of-the-art metabolic theory.  ...  This is facilitated by the fact that both the published and actual Metalog theories are stratified logic programs; with no recursion through negation.  ...

It is necessary to deal ex- plicitly with the control flow of such programs.  ...  Our final result justifies metalogical rea- soning: if the denotations of two @ programs are equal in # then the @ programs are in fact operationally equivalent.”  ...

The spectrum described there was found to be appro- priate for controlling data base usage in a substantial data base design project.  ...  As we have said, the high level user may use logic as a powerful programming language to construct his queries. See Warren (1981) for examples.  ... 

Towards Concise, Machine-discovered Proofs of Gödel's Two Incompleteness Theorems [article]

Elijah Malaby, Bradley Dragun, John Licato
2020 arXiv   pre-print
To demonstrate MATR's utility, we then describe a formalized metalogic suitable for proofs of G\"odel's Incompleteness Theorems, and report on our progress using our metalogic in MATR to semi-autonomously  ...  To facilitate this research, we present MATR, a new framework for automated theorem proving explicitly designed to easily adapt to unusual logics or integrate new reasoning processes.  ...  In order to simplify the proof space, we employ four types of resolution codelets; two for the metalogic, and two for first-order logic.  ...

Querying Class-Relationship Logic in a Metalogic Framework [chapter]

Jørgen Fischer Nilsson
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We introduce a class relationship logic for stating various forms of logical relationships between classes. This logic is intended for ontologies and knowledge bases and combinations thereof.  ...  Reasoning and querying is conducted in the Datalog logical language, which serves as an embracing decidable and tractable metalogic.  ...  I would like to thank Hans Bruun, Jacobo Rouces, and Jørgen Villadsen for helpful comments.  ...

CMU Computer science—a 25th anniversary commemorative

Rosenfeld, ed., Information Processing 74 (North-Holland, Amsterdam, 1974).  ...  The authors write a pure interpreter for pure Prolog that is not all that pure well and again we see some good Prolog programs.Just as good literature is good for authors; good programs are good for programmers  ...  All of that could be used for an interesting argument about politics as seen from a logical base, but here I want to discuss it with respect to evaluation of people.  ...

Program Development Schemata as Derived Rules

Penny Anderson, David Basin
2000 Journal of symbolic computation  
Practically, our formalization yields a simple methodology for carrying out development using existing logical frameworks; we illustrate this in the domain of logic program synthesis and transformation  ...  We show how the formalization and application of schemata for program development can be reduced to the formalization and application of derived rules of inference.  ...  We propose the use of logical frameworks based on formal metalogics for this task.  ...

Multimodal Separation Logic for Reasoning About Operational Semantics

Robert Dockins, Andrew W. Appel, Aquinas Hobor
2008 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
We show how to reason, in the proof assistant Coq, about realistic programming languages using a combination of separation logic and heterogeneous multimodal logic.  ...  The result is a powerful and elegant system for reasoning about programming languages and their semantics. The techniques are quite general and can be adopted to a wide variety of settings.  ...  The control continuations κ are "control stacks," abstract representations of the program stack of an ordinary C program.  ...

Generic system support for deductive program development [chapter]

Abdelwaheb Ayari, David A. Basin
1996 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Within a conservative extension of higher-order logic implemented in the Isabelle system, we derived rules for program development that can simulate those of the deductive tableau proposed by Manna and  ...  We report on a case study in using logical frameworks to support the formalization of programming calculi and their application to deduction-based program synthesis.  ...  Resolution, controlled by the interactive or tactic (these are programs which construct proofs) guided application of proof rules, gives us a means not only to verify programs, but also to interactively  ...
