The Stable Model Semantics For Logic Programming
, 1988
"... We propose a new declarative semantics for logic programs with negation. Its formulation is quite simple; at the same time, it is more general than the iterated fixed point semantics for stratied programs, and is applicable to some useful programs that are not stratified. ..."

Graphical models, exponential families, and variational inference
, 2008
"... The formalism of probabilistic graphical models provides a unifying framework for capturing complex dependencies among random variables, and building largescale multivariate statistical models. Graphical models have become a focus of research in many statistical, computational and mathematical fiel ..."

Logical foundations of objectoriented and framebased languages
 JOURNAL OF THE ACM
, 1995
"... We propose a novel formalism, called Frame Logic (abbr., Flogic), that accounts in a clean and declarative fashion for most of the structural aspects of objectoriented and framebased languages. These features include object identity, complex objects, inheritance, polymorphic types, query methods, ..."

, encapsulation, and others. In a sense, Flogic stands in the same relationship to the objectoriented paradigm as classical predicate calculus stands to relational programming. Flogic has a modeltheoretic semantics and a sound and complete resolutionbased proof theory. A small number of fundamental concepts
On understanding types, data abstraction, and polymorphism
 ACM COMPUTING SURVEYS
, 1985
"... Our objective is to understand the notion of type in programming languages, present a model of typed, polymorphic programming languages that reflects recent research in type theory, and examine the relevance of recent research to the design of practical programming languages. Objectoriented languag ..."

Pig Latin: A NotSoForeign Language for Data Processing
"... There is a growing need for adhoc analysis of extremely large data sets, especially at internet companies where innovation critically depends on being able to analyze terabytes of data collected every day. Parallel database products, e.g., Teradata, offer a solution, but are usually prohibitively e ..."

A unified approach to global program optimization
 In Conference Record of the ACM Symposium on Principles of Programming Languages
, 1973
"... A technique is presented for global analysie of program structure in order to perform compile time optimization of object code generated for expressions. The global expression optimization presented includes constant propagation, common subexpression elimination, elimination of redundant register lo ..."

load operations, and live expression analysis. A general purpose program flow analysis algorithm is developed which depends upon the existence of an “optimizing function. ” The algorithm is defined formally using a directed graph model of program flow structure, and is shown to be correct, Several
Extending and Implementing the Stable Model Semantics
, 2002
"... A novel logic program like language, weight constraint rules, is developed for answer set programming purposes. It generalizes normal logic programs by allowing weight constraints in place of literals to represent, e.g., cardinality and resource constraints and by providing optimization capabilities ..."

The computational complexity of the language is shown to be similar to that of normal programs under the stable model semantics. A simple embedding of general weight constraint rules to a small
The design and implementation of hierarchical software systems with reusable components
 ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology
, 1992
"... We present a domainindependent model of hierarchical software system design and construction that is based on interchangeable software components and largescale reuse. The model unifies the conceptualizations of two independent projects, Genesis and Avoca, that are successful examples of software c ..."

A Unified Framework for Hybrid Control: Model and Optimal Control Theory
 IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON AUTOMATIC CONTROL
, 1998
"... Complex natural and engineered systems typically possess a hierarchical structure, characterized by continuousvariable dynamics at the lowest level and logical decisionmaking at the highest. Virtually all control systems todayfrom flight control to the factory floorperform computercoded chec ..."

We first identify the phenomena that arise in realworld hybrid systems. Then, we introduce a mathematical model of hybrid systems as interacting collections of dynamical
A unified computation model for functional and logic programming
 IN PROC. OF THE 24TH ACM SYMPOSIUM ON PRINCIPLES OF PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES (PARIS
, 1997
"... We propose a new computation model which combines the operational principles of functional languages (reduction), logic languages (nondeterministic search for solutions), and integrated functional logic languages (residuation and narrowing). This computation model combines efficient evaluation prin ..."

 Add to MetaCart
evaluation principles of functional logic languages are particular instances of this model. Thus, our model is a suitable basis for future declarative programming languages.
