  1. unification

    Unification is a process or action of making elements or parts into a coordinated whole, particularly in a conceptual, political, or organizational context. In computer science, it refers to an algorithmic process of solving equations between symbolic expressions. In logic, it's a concept of identifying or equating similar concepts. Thus unification has varying definitions under different contexts but generally pertains to the idea of bringing together separate components into a single, unified system.

  1. Unification

    Unification, in computer science and logic, is an algorithmic process by which one attempts to solve the satisfiability problem. The goal of unification is to find a substitution which demonstrates that two seemingly different terms are in fact either identical or just equal. Unification is widely used in automated reasoning, logic programming and programming language type system implementation. Several kinds of unification are commonly studied: that for theories without any equations is referred to as syntactic unification: one wishes to show that terms are identical. If one has a non-empty equational theory, then one is typically interested in showing the equality of terms; this is referred to as semantic unification. Since substitutions can be ordered into a partial order, unification can be understood as the procedure of finding a meet on a lattice. The first formal investigation of unification can be attributed to John Alan Robinson, who used first-order unification as a basic building block of his resolution procedure for first-order logic, a great step forward in automated reasoning technology, as it eliminated one source of combinatorial explosion: searching for instantiation of terms.
