Implementations of Logic Programming Systems is a collection of research papers in the area of the implementation of logic programming systems. It will be of immediate interest to practitioners who seek understanding of how to efficiently manage memory, generate fast code, perform sophisticated static analyses, and design high-performance runtime features.
A major theme, throughout the papers, is how to effectively leverage host implementation systems and technologies to implement target systems. This book is also beneficial for future reference because it summarizes a wealth of systems implementation experience of the researchers shaping the field over the past ten years.
Another theme of the book is compilation techniques to boost performance. The field of static analysis for logic programs is a rapidly developing field that deserves a volume on its own.
Implementations of Logic Programming Systems serves as an excellent reference and may be used as a text for a course on the subject.
