An Expert System for Semantic and Relational Database Design

Mokrane Bouzeghoub
1989 International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering  
The expert system approach, described in this paper, is more adapted to the difficult problem of database modeling.  ...  It integrates algorithms, heuristics and practical know-how, and proposes an interactive methodology which is based on abstraction levels, user friendly interfaces and a modular knowledge base.  ...  For example. some logic based models allow to express most constraints as any first ~rder formu~as.  ...

LINCX: A Linear Logical Framework with First-Class Contexts [chapter]

Aina Linn Georges, Agata Murawska, Shawn Otis, Brigitte Pientka
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Linear logic provides an elegant framework for modelling stateful, imperative and concurrent systems by viewing a context of assumptions as a set of resources.  ...  Lincx allows us to model (linear) abstract syntax trees as syntactic structures that may depend on intuitionistic and linear assumptions.  ...  Having also additive operators would allow us to for example model the meta-theory of session type systems [5] and reason about concurrent computation.  ...

Query systems in similarity-based databases

Radim Belohlavek, Vilem Vychodil
2010 Proceedings of the 2010 ACM Symposium on Applied Computing - SAC '10  
A major implication of the paper is that similarity-based data querying can be made an integral part of an extended, similarity-based, relational model of data which is based on first-order predicate logics  ...  using residuated structures of truth values in much the same way as the querying in the Codd's model is based on the classic first-order predicate logic.  ...  In the classic model, 1 and 0 are manipulated according to the rules of classic first-order logic (in this sense, Codd's model is based on classic logic).  ...

Declarative Reflection and its Application as a Pattern Language

A. Herranz, J.J. Moreno, N. Maya
2002 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
The range of interesting applications is very wide: formal specification of interfaces and abstract classes, specification of component based software, formalization of design pattern, using Slam-sl as  ...  The paper presents the reflection facilities of the specification language Slam-sl. Slam-sl is an object oriented specification language where class methods are specified by pre and postconditions.  ...  The work in [1] is focused on the formalization of architectural design patterns based on an object oriented model integrated with a process oriented method to describe the patterns.  ...

Axiomatic Methods in Science [chapter]

Patrick Suppes

The first section gives a brief overview of the formalization of theories within frrst-order logic.  ...  To begin with, we use one standard notation for elementary logic. The sentential connectives  ...  , or at least a binary weak ordering relation in terms of which we may define both equilibrium and the relation of "inclination"; and finally a binary operation for combining objects, needed for the formulation  ...

Semantic Enrichment in Ontologies for Matching

Nwe Ni Tun, Satoshi Tojo
2006 International Journal on Semantic Web and Information Systems (IJSWIS)  
Therefore, I proposed a semantically-enriched model of ontologies (called EnOnto-Model) in which every domain concept is treated as a sort-an entity type that carries a criteria for determining the individuation  ...  I set up a logic-based formal system i to classify domain concepts into these sort categories, using three philosophical notions: identity, existential rigidity, and external dependency.  ...  For example, one model might use temporal representations based on interval logic, while another might use a representation based on point logic [66] . * Concept description: This type of difference is  ...

Ontology-based standards development: Application of OntoStanD to ebXML business process specification schema

Bahareh Rahmanzadeh Heravi, Mark Lycett, Sergio de Cesare
2014 International Journal of Accounting Information Systems  
The paper utilises the Ontology-based Standards Development methodology (OntoStanD) as a methodological approach for designing ontological models of standards.  ...  Business process standards are developed to provide a common understanding of the information shared between trading partners.  ...  We would like to thank Stephen Green, a voting member and one of the main contributors to ebBP standard, for his help and support during the development of this work.  ...

Telos: representing knowledge about information systems

John Mylopoulos, Alex Borgida, Matthias Jarke, Manolis Koubarakis
1990 ACM Transactions on Information Systems  
The design principles for the language are based on the premise that information system development is knowledge intensive and that the primary responsibility of any language intended for the task is to  ...  Indeed, the language is appropriate for representing knowledge about a variety of worlds related to an information system, such as the subject world (application domain), the usage world (user models,  ...  Suppose that one wishes to base requirements modeling on the notion of role rather than that of activity, as Pernici notes t431. For RML such a change of perspective amounts to a total discard.  ...

The qualitative behavior of the mechanism does not change when sitated within a large model of glycolysis/gluconeogenesis and the TCA cycle.  ...  When the simple model is supplanted with one in which the enzyme rate laws are derived from experimental data, the steady state of the mechanism furnions as an asymmetric fuzzy aggregation operator with  ...  Consider a network based on the logical equation: I1, OIZ= (1 AI2)A(I,AI2)) (12) where "$" stands for the XOR operation.  ...

The Logic of Brouwer and Heyting [chapter]

Joan Rand Moschovakis
2009 Handbook of the History of Logic  
This insight together with "the intuition of the bare two-oneness" guided the creation of intuitionistic logic and arithmetic, with full induction and a theory of the rational numbers.  ...  Brouwer objected to the general law of excluded middle as claiming a priori that every mathematical problem has a solution, and to the general law ¬¬AA of double negation as asserting that every consistent  ...  Acknowledgements I am grateful to the students of the Graduate Program in Logic and Algorithms (MΠΛA) in Athens, especially to Garyfallia Vafeiadou and Nikos Vaporis, for reviving and expanding my enthusiasm  ...

However, no bounds on the size of these explanations is given; for all we know, they may be unbearably tedious.  ...  Our main technical result is a general lower bound that, in particular, implies that the foregoing bound is asymptotically tight.  ...  Acknowledgement We have benefited from detailed and careful comments of the anonymous reviewers.  ...
