Mixed-Strategies for Linear Tabling in Prolog


Tabling is an implementation technique that solves some limitations of Prolog's operational semantics in dealing with recursion and redundant sub-computations. Arguably, the SLDT and DRA strategies are the two most successful extensions to standard linear tabled evaluation. In this work, we propose a new strategy for linear tabling, named DRS, and we present a framework, on top of the Yap system, that supports the combination of variants of these three strategies.
