Logic Paradigm for C++ [ Part 1 ]


About This Session

The Logic paradigm (LP) is a powerful, Turing-complete programming paradigm that has seen little representation in mainstream languages. LP is an important approach in Computer Science towards what is sometimes referred to as the Holy-Grail of programming "The user states the problem, the computer solves it". Origins of Logic theory dates back to about 300 B.C. when Aristotle founded Formal Logic to bring rigor to logical inferencing. The theory matured into Modern Logic more recently (early 1900s) when Russell & Whitehead showed that all of Mathematics could be reduced to Logic. This talk will provide a fast track introduction to the basics of LP in C++ without indulging too much in arcane theory. We will observe how blending LP into existing C++ concepts allows programmers to come up with really cool solutions. For this talk we shall use Castor, an open source C++ library which introduces LP into standard C++.
