There are no special prerequisities apart from the basic math skills (on the secondary-school level), and certain aptitude for abstract reasoning.

Course objectives
On successful completion of the course, students will understand functional and logic programming paradigms. Programming languages enforcing declarative way of description of an algorithm bring on programming habits that the students will be able to use in practice later on when implementing large applications using even imperative languages.
  • Logic programming paradigm
  • Search for a prove as way of computation
  • Prolog
  • Functional programming paradigm
  • Basic notions: term, value, evaluation step.
  • Lambda abstraction.
  • Higher-order functions, partial application, currying.
  • Simple types: ground types and type constructors, product types.
  • Polymorfic types, typing.
  • User defined type constructors, sum types, recursive types; definitions by patterns.
  • List constructors, list enumeration and list comprehension.
  • Evaluation order, strict vs. lazy reduction.
  • Infinite data structures.
  • Recursive functions, operations on lists and trees, time complexity.

Teaching methods
The course is organized as a series of lectures, plus a set of exercises, where the students get practice with solving various problems.
Assessment methods
The evaluation consists of one obligatory midterm written test (24%) and a final written exam (76%). The final grade can be further improved by additional "bonus points" which can be acquired for solving selected exercises.
