Chapter 12 Constraint Logic Programming

Kim Marriott, Peter J. Stuckey, Mark Wallace

Constraint Logic Programming (CLP) is the merger of two declarative paradigms: constraint solving and logic programming. As both constraint solving and logic programs are based on mathematical relations the merger is natural and convenient. CLP encourages experimentation and fast algorithm development by narrowing the gap between the logic and the solving algorithms. This is because CLP can express both conceptual and design models and, even more importantly, CLP can also express mappings from conceptual to design models. By a conceptual model ...
