Course objectives
The main goal of this lecture is to provide a basic information in the subject of Logic Programming. The lecture starts with basics of programming in Prolog. A brief introduction to computational logic is followed by the description of a theoretical background of logic programming language Prolog. Constraint logic programming is presented from the theoretical and practical point of view. Implementation of Prolog is discussed in the last part of the lecture together with basic optimization techniques. Seminaries are focused on practical aspects of logic programming.
Syllabus
  • Prolog, data structures, backtracking, cut. Extra-logical predicates, arithmetics. Programming techniques and style.
  • Theory of logic programming. First order logic, resolution, definite clauses and programs, models, SLD resolution.
  • Control of program flow, reduction of program search tree, cut.
  • Equality, negation, SLDNF resolution.
  • Constraint logic programming, basic programming in CLP(FD), constraint propagation, search.

Assessment methods (in Czech)
Hodnocení se skládá ze tří částí: zápočtového projektu (možno získat až 40 bodů), průběžné písemné práce (až 30 bodů) a závěrečné písemné práce (až 150 bodů). Opravné termíny jsou ve formě ústní zkoušky. Ústní zkouška je volitelná pro studenty nespokojené se svým hodnocením.


Zápočet z předmětu je udělen za vypracování projektu. Součástí řešení projektu je písemná zpráva obsahující předběžnou analýzu řešeného problému, finální program v Prologu a programová dokumentace. Projekty jsou řešeny 1-3 studenty.


Průběžná písemná práce je prakticky orientovaná na řešení několika jednodušších příkladů ze základů programování v jazyce Prolog.


Závěrečná písemná práce se skládá z teoretické části a z řešení praktických příkladů.



Evaluation consists of three parts: seminar project (it is possible to get up to 40 points), written work during semester (up to 30 points) and final written exam (up to 150 points). For irregular dates, oral exam are available only. Oral exam is available for all students unsatisfied with their evaluation.


To get any credit student needs to make a seminar project. The seminar project consists of the written report containig preliminary analysis of the solved problem, the Prolog program, and the program documentation. The seminar projects are solved by 1 to 3 students.


Written work during semester consists of practical exercises oriented on solving several simpler examples.


The final written exam consists of theroretial part and practical examples.
