Description

This is the first of two columns on logic programming. It gives an introduction to the subject and develops a query evaluator in Mathematica. This query evaluator is an interpreter for a subset of the programming language Prolog. A prerequisite for it is unification, which is a generalization of the pattern matching that underlies Mathematica's own evaluator.
