This book presents a unique state-of-the-art survey on progress in the field of program development making use of computational logic. The motivating idea behind this approach is the belief that declarative paradigms such as logic programming are better suited to program development tasks than traditional non-declarative ones such as imperative paradigms. Closely related to the international workshop and symposium series "Logic Program Synthesis and Transformation", later renamed "Program Development in Computational Logic", this book presents 15 carefully selected and reviewed articles and surveys by leading researchers in the area. The contributions are grouped in sections on specification and synthesis, semantics, analysis, transformation and specialization, termination, and systems.
Specification and Synthesis -- Specifying Compositional Units for Correct Program Development in Computational Logic -- Synthesis of Programs in Computational Logic -- Developing Logic Programs from Specifications Using Stepwise Refinement -- Semantics -- Declarative Semantics of Input Consuming Logic Programs -- On the Semantics of Logic Program Composition -- Analysis -- Analysing Logic Programs by Reasoning Backwards -- Binding-Time Analysis for Mercury -- A Generic Framework for Context-Sensitive Analysis of Modular Programs -- Transformation and Specialisation -- Unfold/Fold Transformations for Automated Verification of Parameterized Concurrent Systems -- Transformation Rules for Locally Stratified Constraint Logic Programs -- Specialising Interpreters Using Offline Partial Deduction -- Termination -- Characterisations of Termination in Logic Programming -- On the Inference of Natural Level Mappings -- Proving Termination for Logic Programs by the Query-Mapping Pairs Approach -- Systems -- Herbrand Constraints in HAL.
