Summary: Reasoning on Constraint Handling Rules (CHR) programs and their executional behaviour is often ad-hoc and outside of a formal system. This is a pity, because CHR subsumes a wide range of important automated reasoning services. Mapping CHR to Transaction Logic (\(\mathcal{TR}\)) combines CHR rule specification, CHR rule application, and reasoning on CHR programs and CHR derivations inside one formal system which is executable. This new \(\mathcal{TR}\) semantics obviates the need for disjoint declarative and operational semantics.
