    Essays in Honor of Alan Robinson

    Jean Louis Lassez and Gordon Plotkin

    Reflecting Alan Robinson's fundamental contribution to computational logic, this book brings together seminal papers in inference, equality theories, and logic programming. It is an exceptional collection that ranges from surveys of major areas to new results in more specialized topics.

    The 4th International Conference

    Jean Louis Lassez

    The 45 contributions in this book consider all aspects of logic programming.

    The 45 contributions in this book consider all aspects of logic programming, including theory and foundations; architectures and implementations; programming languages and methodology; databases; knowledge representation, reasoning, and expert systems; and relations to other computation models, programming languages, and programming methodologies. There are chapters on novel applications and on applications that address the unique character of logic programming. Invited speakers are Keith Clark (Imperial College, London), Herve Gallaire (ECRC, Munich), Fernando Pereira, (SRI International), K. R. Rao (University of Melbourne), J. Alan Robinson (Syracuse University), and Masahiko Sato (Tohoku University).

    Logic Programming: Proceedings of the Fourth International Conference is included in the series Logic Programming (Research Reports and Notes), edited by Ehud Shapiro. Two-volume set
