Abstract

Although studies of a number of parallel implementations of logic programming languages are now available, the results are difficult to interpret due to the multiplicity of factors involved, the effect of each of which is difficult to sepárate. In this paper we present the results of a highlevel simulation study of or- and independent and-parallelism with a wide selection of Prolog programs that aims to facilítate this separation. We hope this study will be instrumental in better understanding and comparing results from actual implementations, as shown by an example in the paper. In addition, the paper examines some of the issues and tradeoffs associated with the combination of and- and or-parallelism and proposes reasonable solutions based on the simulation data.
