2 Logic Programming School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh Why Worry About Specifications? Equivalence p(X) ( Y.(q(X) r(Y))) p(X) ( Y.(q(X) r(Y))) p(X) :- \+ (q(X), \+ r(Y)) is logically equivalent to may be equivalent to

Refinement subset([], S2) subset([H|T], S2) :- member(H,S2), subset(T, S2) subset(S1, S2) list(S1) list(S2) E.(member(E,S1) member(E,S2)) subset(S1, S2) :- list(S1),list(S2), \+ (member(E,S1), \+ member(E,S2))

4 Logic Programming School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh Why Worry About Specifications? Desirable properties (e.g. termination) subset([], S2) subset([H|T], S2) member(H,S2) subset(T, S2) size(subset([H|T], S2)) = len([H|T]) + len(S2) = len(T) len(S2) > len(S2) = size(member(H,S2)) size(subset ([H|T], S2)) = len([H|T]) + len(S2) = len(T) len(S2) > len(T) + len(S2) = size(subset(T,S2)) size(member(H,[H|T])) = len([H|T]) = len(T) + 1 > len(T) = size(member(H,T)) len([H|T]) = len(T) + 1 size(subset(S1,S2)) = len(S1) + len(S2) size(member(E,S)) = len(S) Given:
