Should mathematicians learn the Prolog language? Due to its ability of modeling algebraic structures having complex operations and its backtracking algorithm able to scan a search space looking for solutions, Prolog becomes a great tool to study complex algebraic structures. The model of interactions between compilers when computer scientists are attempting to bootstrap a system or to create a new language or a new compiler is such an algebraic structure. This paper tries to answer “yes'' our previous question.
