Automatic derivation of logic programs: the synthesis of eureka predicates.

ABSTRACT
We consider the problem of inventing new predicates when developing logic programs by transformation. The synthesis of those predicates allows efficiency improvements, but it is in general a very difficult task. We study a strategy, called loop absorption, which determines the new predicates to be defined. We study the interaction of that strategy with the generalization strategy and we also consider a class of programs for which loop absorption is successful.
