**Description**:

This book shows solutions to problems that were in the first 10 Prolog Programming Contests. The solutions in this book were not constructed by participants during the contest, since the contest rules always prevented that. However, many of our solutions could have been constructed during the contest under extreme time pressure, and so you will find many solutions using the generate and test strategy, together with a higher than usual deployment of member/2, append/3, findall/3 and even reverse/2. On the other hand, we have avoided dynamic predicates (except in the solution of two problems), and we have often preferred the Prolog if-then-else and once/1 predicate over the use of the !. We have also avoided comments in the programs.
