Feb. 23. Some
solutions
to the exercises in Assignment 5 are available for
studying for the midterm.
Feb. 23. Sample

This is the code shown in class today.
Feb. 20. On Monday, February 23, there will be an optional
review session for anyone who wants to go over material
to be covered on Midterm 2. The session will take place
from 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM in Room 045 of EE1. This room is
next door to our regular classroom. Please note that I
will not be able to hold my Monday 2:30 office hour on the 23rd,
due to a Senate Executive Committee meeting from 2:30 to 4:30.
Feb. 11. The sample Prolog program for generating Roman numerals
is available
here. The "likes" program is
also available.
For Monday, February 9, complete the worksheet on Predicate
Calculus Resolution. Turn it in on Monday for credit.
For anyone who missed class on Feb.6,
the worksheet is available

In class we decided that the domain for this exercise
would be "the set of all buildings". Furthermore, we settled
on the use of the following predicates:
U(x): x belongs to UCLU; D(x): x has at least one dinghy;
R(x): x has an emergency rowboat; V(x): x is in violation of the Lake
Quake Code; C(x) x will be temporarily closed. The constant symbol s
will represent Schwimmschach Hall, and the function a(x) returns
the annex of x. There are many issues related to these choices, but
we decided to go with them for this exercise.
The programming part of Assignment 4 is a partnership activity.
Students in partnerships will receive extra credit simply by virtue
of being in partnerships. If you need a partner, don't be shy.
Use the class email list if you need to.
On Thursday, January 22, all members of the class are invited to a showing
of the movie "AI". Depending on how many people actually sign up,
we may have room for your guests, if you wish to bring guests.
The room holds about 1015 people. It will be in Sieg 322 at 8:00 PM.
