Answer Set Programming (ASP) is a prime approach to declarative problem solving. Although initially tailored to modeling problems in the area of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KRR), its attractive combination of a rich yet simple modeling language with high-performance solving capacities has sparked interests in academia and industry way beyond KRR. This course presents a detailed introduction to ASP, aiming at using ASP languages and systems for solving application problems. Starting from the essential formal foundations, it introduces ASP's solving technology, modeling language and methodology, while illustrating the overall solving process by practical examples.
