On the Computational Complexity of Prolog Programs

  title={On the Computational Complexity of Prolog Programs},
  author={Alexandre Ja. Dikovsky},
  journal={Theor. Comput. Sci.},
Time and space complexity of Prolog programs is investigated in simplest Prolog subclasses: kernel Prokq (no structures, no built-ins), kernel dynamic Prolog (dynamic clauses control operators allowed), .pat Pro& (the subset of kernel Prolog with no lists) and pat dynamic Prolog (the corresponding subset of kernel dynamic Prolog. Even in flat Prolog the problem of solution existence needs exponential time. A new operational semantics of Prolog is introduced which allows measuring practical time… CONTINUE READING
