bachelor program

VO2 + PS1  SS 2012  703113 + 703114


The lecture introduces the concepts of logic programming. We will study the programming paradigma of logic programming and relate it to known programming paradigms as for example object-oriented programming and functional programming.

Furthermore, we will cover the programming language Prolog, such that techniques of pure Prolog are studied, as well as more advanced concepts like metaprogramming or definite clause grammars.
