Abstract

This paper presents a backward sharing analysis for logic programs. The analysis computes pre-conditions for a query that guarantee a given post-condition is satisfied after the query is successfully executed. The analysis uses a pair sharing domain and is capable of inferring pre-conditions that ensure the absence of sharing. This, in turn, has many applications in logic programming. The work is unique in that it demonstrates that backward analysis is applicable even for properties that are not closed under instantiation.
