Abstract : Meta-level Representation System (MRS) is a logic programming system with extensive meta-level facilities. As such it can be used to implement virtually all kinds of artificial intelligence (AI) applications in a wide variety of architectures. This guide is intended to be a comprehensive text and reference for MRS. It also attempts to explain the foundations of the logic programming approach from the ground up, and it is hoped that it will thus provide access, even for the uninitiated, to all the benefits of AI methods. The only prerequisites for understanding MRS are a passing acquaintance with LISP and an open mind. The first part of the book deals with the principles and basic commands of MRS, and is sufficient to allow the reader to begin creating fairly complex systems. The second part covers the advanced features of MRS that enable the user to tailor the system to her own needs and increase performance functionality as desired.
