CSCI3180 — Principles of Programming Languages — Spring 2019 Assignment 4 — Declarative Programming Deadline Apr 24, 2019 (Wednesday) 23:59 1 Introduction Declarative programming is a programming paradigm that expresses the logic of a computation without describing its control flow. You will gain experience of declarative programming with an emphasis on Prolog and ML in this assignment. 2 Logic Programming Implement the required predicates or queries of the following two Problems in a Prolog program file named “Asg4.pl” You should clearly indicate using comments the corresponding question number of each sub-problem. Note that the answers which are queries should be written in comments as well.
- Recall the successor notation for representing natural numbers, and the sum(X,Y,Z) relation defined in the lecture which is true if Z is the sum of X and Y . (a) Define natNum(X) which is true if X is a natural number. (b) Define lt(X,Y) which is true if X is less than Y. (c) Give a query to find natural numbers less than 3. (d) Define geq(X,Y) which is true if X is equal to or greater than Y. (e) Define max(X,Y,Z) which is true if Z is the maximum of X and Y. (f) Based on sum/3, define difference(X,Y,Z) which is true if X minus Y is equal to Z. (g) Based on lt/2, geq/2 and difference/3, define mod(X,Y,Z) which is true if X mod Y is equal to Z.
- A binary tree is either empty or composed of a root and two children, which are binary trees themselves. The root of a binary tree is a node containing a value. Diagramatically, a binary tree consists of a set of nodes and lines connecting parents and children. The nodes are depicted by circles with values written inside. Empty binary trees are not shown in the diagram. Figure 1: An example of binary tree In Prolog, We represent an empty tree by the atom “nil” and a non-empty tree by the term “bt(X,L,R)”. where X denotes the root node, L and R denote the left and right subtrees respectively. 1 (a) Represent the binary tree shown in Figure 1 as a Prolog term. (b) Define the predicate isTree(Term), Where “Term” can be any Prolog Term. Predicate isTree(Term) is true if “Term” represents a binary tree. (c) defines the Predicate isLeaf(X,Tree), where “X” is a Tree node, Predicate isLeaf(X,Tree) is true if “X” is a leaf node of. Predicate isLeaf(X,Tree) is true if “X” is a leaf node of. Predicate isLeaf(X,Tree) is true if “X” is a leaf node of (D) Define the predicate numberOfLeaf(Tree,N), where ‘Tree’ is a binary Tree, “N” is the number of leaf nodes in the successor notation. Note that you could use the sum/3 defined previously. (E) the height of a binary tree is the length of the path from the root to the deepest leaf node (which must be an empty tree) in the tree. Here we define the height of an empty tree to be zero. Thus a tree with a single element node (with both children as empty) will have a height of one (s(0)), and so on. Define the predicate height(Tree,H), Where “Tree” is a term representing a binary Tree and H is the height of this Tree in the successor notation. You may want to use the max/3 defined above.
- Functional Programming Implement the required functions of the following problem in an ML program file named “ASG4.ML”. You should clearly indicate using comments the corresponding question number of each subproblem. This problem involves a card game invented just for this question. You will write several helper functions first and then implement a main program to track the progress of this game. The card game is played with a card-list, and the player will have a list of held-cards, initially empty. During each round of play, the player makes a move by choosing to draw a card from the card-list, or discarding one of the held-cards. The game will end either when the player chooses to stop or when the player already has six cards. The goal of this game is to end the game with a low score (0 is the best). The score is defined as the absolute value of the differences between sum of the red color card values and the sum of black color card values, and then plus six minuses the number of held cards. The details are shown in the following formula: Score = abs(sum(red values) sum(black values)) + (6 #held cards). The type definition of a card is shown below (The joker cards are not included in this game): datatype suit = Clubs | Diamonds | Hearts | Spades; datatype rank = Jack | Queen | King | Ace | Num of int; type card = suit * rank; Each card will have associated suit and rank. The suit of a card is related to the color and rank is related to the value of the card. The color type and move type are defined as datatype color = Red | Black; datatype move = Discard of card | Draw;
- Write an ML function abs, which takes an integer and returns its absolute value.
- Write an ML function cardColor, which takes a card as input and returns its color. Spades
and clubs are black, while diamonds and hearts are red. Note that one case-expression is
- Write an ML function cardValue, which takes a card as input and returns its value. Numbered
cards have their numbers as the value. Aces are 11, and everything else is 10.
- Write an ML function numOfCard, which takes a card list cardList and returns the number
of cards in the list.
- Write an ML function removeCard(cardList, c), which takes a card list cardList representing the held-cards, and a card c. It should return a list after removing card c from the list. If c is in the list more than once, Note that “=” can be used to compare. You could assume that C is always contained in the list cards.
- Write an ML function sumCards(cardList, col), which takes a list of cards cardList and
a color col. It will return the sum of the given color card values.
- Write an ML function score, which takes a card list cardList (the held-cards) and computes
the score as defined earlier.
- Write an ML function runGame(cardList, moveList), which takes a card list cardList
representing the cards from which the player can draw, a move list moveList (the moves
chosen by the player at each round of play), and returns the score at the end of the game
after processing the moves in the move list in order. As described above:
At the beginning of the game, the list representing held-cards should be empty.
If there are no more moves (i.e. the move list is empty), the game will end.
During each round of play, if the player choose to discard some card c, the game will
continue with the held-cards having c removed and the card list remains unchanged.
If a player chooses to draw a card and the card list is already empty, the game is
over. If drawing causes the number of the held-cards to exceed five, the game is over
(after drawing). Otherwise, the game continues with a larger held-cards and a smaller
