Abstract

This paper presents an approximation to the study of parallel systems using sequential tools. The Independent And-parallelism in Prolog is an example of parallel processing paradigm in the framework of logic programming, and implementations like <fc-Prolog uncover the potential performance of parallel processing. But this potential can also be explored using only sequential systems. Being the spirit of this paper to show how this can be done with a standard system, only standard Prolog will be used in the implementations included. Such implementations include tests for parallelism in And-Prolog, a correctnesschecking meta-interpreter of <fc-Prolog and a simulator of parallel execution for <fc-Prolog.
