[Prolog] Matrix Multiplication

[Prolog] Matrix Multiplication

[Prolog] Matrix Multiplication


I found some code for Matrix Multiplication in Prolog but I can't figure out what is wrong with it.

mmultiply([V0|Rest], V1, [Result|Others]):-  
            mmultiply(Rest, V1, Others),

multiply([V0|Rest], V1, [Result|Others]):-  
            multiply(Rest, V1, Others),

vmul([H1|T1], [H2|T2], Result):-
        vmul(T1,T2, Newresult),
        Result is H1*H2+Newresult.

When I call mmultiply([[1,2],[1,2]],X,[[1,2],[1,2]]). Prolog throws an error:
ERROR: is/2: Arguments are not sufficiently instantiated.

I'm new in Prolog and I don't know what is wrong.
Thanks for any suggestions.

RE: [Prolog] Matrix Multiplication

You can't use mmultiply this way.
arg 1 and 2 must be bound :
mmultiply([[1,2],[1,2]],[[1,2],[1,2]], X).
