Introduction to this research theme: Logic/Symbolic Vector Processing

Explanation: There are many research results on high-speed execution of Prolog (logic programming language) by using parallel or pipelined scalar computers. However, this paper aimed accelerating logic language execution by using so-called supercomputer, i. e., vector-type pipelined computers at the first time. This paper only showed the outline of the method, but the following research enabled acceleration for a cirtain range of programs.

Keywords: Logic programming language, Programming language processor, Vectorization of symbol processing, Vectorized symbol processing, Parallel symbol processing, Supercomputing, Super symbol processing, Parallel processing, Vector processing
