Equivalences in Euler-based diagram systems through normal forms

Andrew Fish, John Taylor
2014 LMS Journal of Computation and Mathematics  
In particular, we consider Euler diagrams with shading, and then we conservatively extend the system to include projections, which allow for a much greater degree of flexibility of representation.  ...  AbstractThe form of information presented can influence its utility for the conveying of knowledge by affecting an interpreter's ability to reason with the information.  ...  The authors would like to acknowledge UK EPSRC grants EP/E011160: Visualisation with Euler Diagrams, and EP/J010898/1: Automatic Diagram Generation.

Visualizing Sets: An Empirical Comparison of Diagram Types [chapter]

Peter Chapman, Gem Stapleton, Peter Rodgers, Luana Micallef, Andrew Blake
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
To address this knowledge gap, this paper empirically evaluates four diagram types: Venn diagrams, Euler diagrams with shading, Euler diagrams without shading, and the less well-known linear diagrams.  ...  There are a range of diagram types that can be used to visualize sets. However, there is a significant lack of insight into which is the most effective visualization.  ...  An interesting point is that the Euler diagrams with shading and the Venn diagrams used in the study were all well-formed, whereas those that did not use shading were all non-well-formed (see e.g.  ...

Two Types of Diagrammatic Inference Systems: Natural Deduction Style and Resolution Style [chapter]

Koji Mineshima, Mitsuhiro Okada, Ryo Takemura
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Since the 1990s, reasoning with Venn and Euler diagrams has been studied from mathematical and logical viewpoints.  ...  On the one hand, a diagram construed as a set of regions corresponds to a disjunctive normal form formula and the inference system based on such diagrams corresponds to a resolution calculus.  ...  Euler diagrams in the region-based framework, called Euler diagrams with shading, are obtained by considering some shaded regions of Venn diagrams as "missing" regions.  ...

Using DAG Transformations to Verify Euler/Venn Homogeneous and Euler/Venn FOL Heterogeneous Rules of Inference

Nik Swoboda, Gerard Allwein
2003 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
It has been shown that a special collection of directed acyclic graphs (DAGs) can be used interchangeably with Euler/Venn diagrams in reasoning processes [4] .  ...  Thus, proofs which include Euler/Venn diagrams can be thought of as proofs with DAGs where steps involving only Euler/Venn diagrams can be treated as particular DAG transformations.  ...  To define observation for all formulas in monadic first order logic (MFOL), we introduce a special normal form called EVCNF.  ...

Intuitionistic Euler-Venn Diagrams (extended) [article]

Sven Linker
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We present an intuitionistic interpretation of Euler-Venn diagrams with respect to Heyting algebras.  ...  In contrast to classical Euler-Venn diagrams, we treat shaded and missing zones differently, to have diagrammatic representations of conjunction, disjunction and intuitionistic implication.  ...  For an Euler-Venn diagram d = (L, Z, Z * ) we will write Venn(d) = (L, Venn(L), Z * ) for the Venn diagram with the same set of shaded zones as d, and Euler(d) = (L, Z) for the pure Euler diagram with  ...

Tactical Diagrammatic Reasoning

Sven Linker, Jim Burton, Mateja Jamnik
2017 Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science  
In this paper we take an interactive proof assistant for Euler diagrams, Speedith, and add tactics to its reasoning engine, providing a level of automation in the construction of proofs.  ...  Although automated reasoning with diagrams has been possible for some years, tools for diagrammatic reasoning are generally much less sophisticated than their sentential cousins.  ...  Although our work is concerned only with Euler diagrams, we chose Speedith as the basis for extension due to its code base with effective visualisation of all Euler diagrams.  ...

Proof-Theoretical Investigation of Venn Diagrams: A Logic Translation and Free Rides [chapter]

Ryo Takemura
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Then we study a logic translation of the Venn diagrammatic system with the aim of investigating how our inference rules are rendered to resolution calculus.  ...  Furthermore, our translation provides a more in-depth analysis of the free ride. In particular, we calculate how many pieces of information are obtained in the manipulation of Venn diagrams.  ...  For any non-empty clause set Γ = {r 1 , . . . , r m }, we denote by d(Γ), the disjunctive normal form (DNF) formula (∧r 1 ) ∨ · · · ∨ (∧r m ).  ...

Nik Swoboda, Gerard Allwein
2005 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
The main goal of this paper is to present the basis for a heterogeneous Euler/Venn diagram and First Order Logic (FOL) reasoning system.  ...  We will begin by defining a homogeneous reasoning system for Euler/Venn diagrams including named constants and show this system to be sound and complete.  ...  This is done to ensure that any Euler/Venn diagram with shading can be redrawn as a logically equivalent Euler/Venn diagram with any shaded area removed.  ...
