CHR Research Group

Constraint Handling Rules (CHR) is a concurrent committed-choice constraint logic programming language consisting of guarded rules that transform multi-sets of atomic formulas (constraints) until exhaustion. It was designed by Thom Fruehwirth in 1991. CHR can embed many rule-based formalisms and systems, and it can describe algorithms in a compact declarative way without compromising efficiency. The clean semantics of CHR ensures that several desirable properties hold for CHR programs and also facilitates sophisticated program analysis. CHR libraries exist for Prolog, Haskell, Java, Javascript, Python and C. CHR is also available online for experimentation with many example programs. More than 250 academic and industrial projects worldwide use CHR, and about 2500 research papers reference it.
