Abstract
In this paper we de ne an operational semantics for lazy functional logic programs
including notions like sharing, concurrency, non-determinism, etc. Such a seman-
tic description is not only important to provide appropriate language de nitions
to reason about programs and check the correctness of implementations but it is
also a basis to develop language-speci c tools, like program tracers, pro lers, op-
timizers, etc. First, we consider a \big-step" semantics in natural style to relate
expressions and their evaluated results. Since this semantics is not suÆcient to
cover concurrency, search strategies, or to reason about costs associated to par-
ticular computations, we de ne a \small-step" operational semantics covering the
features of modern functional logic languages.
