Agent strands in the action language nC+

Robert Craven, Marek Sergot
2008 Journal of Applied Logic  
The action language C+ of Giunchiglia, Lee, Lifschitz, McCain and Turner is a formalism for specifying and reasoning about the effects of actions and the persistence ('inertia') of facts over time.  ...  An 'action description' in C+ defines a labelled transition system of a certain kind. nC+ is an extended form of C+ designed for representing normative and institutional aspects of (human or computer)  ...  The example works just as well with more rooms, more than two categories of agents, and a wider repertoire of actions that the agents are able to perform.  ...

On the other hand, one can also imagine more advanced agents that may decide their actions on their own, and if they violate any norms, the system (or rather a part of it, called an electronic institution  ...  Interesting issues then arise about how to achieve such systems in which agents abide by the rules, so to speak.  ...  Together these form a mechanism whereby agents come to be in charge of recognizing which institutional facts follow from brute facts. • In "Agent strands in the action language nC+" by Craven and Sergot  ...

Oligomerization of bovine ribonuclease A: structural and functional features of its multimers

Massimo LIBONATI, Giovanni GOTTE
2004 Biochemical Journal  
The fact that both activity against double-stranded RNA and the antitumour action increase with the size of the oligomer suggests that these activities may share a common structural requirement, such as  ...  The same is true for the remarkable antitumour activity of the oligomers, displayed in vitro and in vivo, in contrast with monomeric RNase A, which lacks these activities.  ...  Laurents for criticism, suggestions, and improvement of language and style.  ...

The syntactic status of noun incorporation in the tenetehára language (Tupi-Guarani family)

Ricardo Campos de Castro, Quesles Fagundes Camargos
2021 Revista Brasileira de Linguística Antropológica  
In summary, we propose that, in the Tenetehára language, the driving force responsible for the incorporation of the noun into the head of a vP is the [+non-individuated] formal feature.  ...  This paper aims at proposing a theoretical analysis that explains the noun incorporation process in the Tenetehára language (Tupi-Guarani).  ...  However, in the example (34b), the affixation of the morpheme {ze-} generates a reflexive structure. In this case, the subject becomes the agent of an action that reflects on itself.  ...

We also propose and discuss a set of transformations on protocol insecurity problems whose application has a dramatic effect on the size of the propositional encoding obtained with our SAT-compilation  ...  Our approach results from the combination of a reduction of protocol insecurity problems to planning problems and well-known SAT-reduction techniques developed for planning.  ...  An action is applicable in a state S iff the action preconditions occur in S and the application of the action leads to a new state obtained from S by removing the fluents in Del and adding those in Add  ...
