Logic and Programming
Methods and foundations of logic-based
tools for dealing with hard
plays a fundamental role in many computer science areas:
databases, programming languages, software engineering,
In fact, logic has been called "the calculus of computer
it plays a similar role in computer science to that of
calculus in the
physical sciences and traditional engineering disciplines (M.
group has done research in automated theorem proving in
first-order logic with equality (paramodulation)
and in higher-order logic (higher-order
unification). Nowadays the group is interested in
(SAT) and SAT modulo theories (SMT) and their applications to
problems in areas such as planning and scheduling:
timetabling, task sequencing in industrial processes, etc.
