Precondition and successor state axioms can be straightforwardly encoded as logic programs. As an example, the following clauses form a suitable logic program for the background theory in the mail delivery world: poss(go(up),S) poss(go(down),S) :- holds(at(R),S), R<6. :- holds(at(R),S), R>1. poss(pick(P,B),S) :- holds(at(R),S), holds(request(P,R,R1),S), holds(empty(B),S).

The solution of a single pattern is embedded in the definition of the overall solution strategy for the Peg Solitaire agent: strategy :- boardSolved. strategy :- isPattern(P), patternSolved(P), strategy. Intuitively, the query strategy can be inferred from these clauses just in case there is a sequence of pattern-solving moves which leads from a given initial board configuration to a solved board. 3(a). 1: An example encoding for the cells of a Peg Solitaire board. (peg(X1) and peg(X2) and peg(X3)).

EndProc; ... proc Interaction . . endProc; Interaction∗ || ( while ¬(∃ p, r 1 , r 2 ) Request( p, r 1 , r 2 ) do Idle endWhile; Control ) In this way, the interaction part runs asynchronously with, and outside of, the main control program. The program itself acts as a simulator, because it generates arbitrary, nondeterministic interactions. Of course the addition and cancellation of requests need to follow some rules, too. Specifically, a request can only be added for a package that has not already been requested or collected, and only those requests can be canceled that are actually present.
