Category-based Semantics for Equational and Constraint Logic Programming

  title={Category-based Semantics for Equational and Constraint Logic Programming},
  author={A Diaconescu},
This thesis proposes a general framework for equational logic programming, called categorybased equational logic by placing the general principles underlying the design of the programming language Eqlog and formulated by Goguen and Meseguer into an abstract form. This framework generalises equational deduction to an arbitrary category satisfying certain natural conditions; completeness is proved under a hypothesis of quanti er projectivity, using a semantic treatment that regards quanti ers as… CONTINUE READING
