The Transformational Approach to Program Development

ABSTRACT
We present an overview of the program transformation techniques which have been proposed over the past twenty-five years in the context of logic programming. We consider the approach based on transformation rules and transformation strategies and we address the following two issues: (i)~the correctness of the transformation rules for various logic languages, and (ii)~the particular strategies to apply for improving program efficiency. We also describe the use of the transformation methodology for the synthesis of logic programs from first-order specifications. Finally, we illustrate some transformational techniques for verifying first-order properties of logic programs and their application to model checking for finite and infinite state concurrent systems.
