The paper outlines the paradigms within the programming arena that have a close link to mathematical logic and provides an explanation for that link. The paper points out that it is difficult to separate the mathematical logic from the programming paradigms, which highlights how connected each programming logic is to the mathematical concepts, functions, methods and logic.

From the Paper:

"The procedural paradigm refers to the programming language that specifies steps it takes to reach a desired state. Within the language the operations contain a series of steps that are completed to finalize a desired action. The object-oriented paradigm is the programming language where each object is considered a separate entity that translates processes, receives and sends data throughout the process, (Hudak 360). The objects are collectively responsible for operations, but each object has its clearly defined role within the system. Functional programming paradigm uses mathematical functions for processing and evaluating data, and focuses on the application of functions as the avenue for programming languages. The logic paradigm is the mathematical concepts for computer programming, with the programming language utilizing logic for the problem solving and model development process."
