About the Authors
  • Knowledge management and knowledge-based intelligence are areas of importance in today's economy and society, and their exploitation requires representation via the development of a declarative interface whose input language is based on logic. Chitta Baral demonstrates how to write programs that behave intelligently by giving them the ability to express knowledge and reason about it. He presents a language, AnsProlog, for both knowledge representation and reasoning, and declarative problem solving. Many of the results have never appeared before in book form but are organized here for those wishing to learn more about the subject, either in courses or through self-study.

    • First book in 2003 on knowledge representation and reasoning using logic programming, and integrates them with declarative problem solving
    • Many executable, declarative programs; a website will contain models and dlv code
    • Comprehensive coverage of declarative logic programming with lots of small examples, model computation algorithms, system descriptions, and several application developments

    Review of the hardback: 'I wholeheartedly recommend this book to researchers and students in the fields of logic programming, declarative programming and knowledge representation.' Journal of Transport, Law and Policy

    Review of the hardback: '… the appearance of an extensive book with such a deep theoretical content and with analyses, methods and examples useful for practical applications is admirable after the very short history of Answer Set Programming.' Zentralblatt MATH
