for backward chaining
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :
An algorithm for proving a goal by recursively
breaking it down into sub-goals and trying to prove these
until facts are reached. Facts are goals with no sub-goals
which are therefore always true. Backward training is the
program execution mechanism used by most logic programming
language like Prolog.
Opposite: forward chaining.
