Jerzy Marcinkowski, Jakub Michaliszyn, Emanuel Kieroński
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We contribute to this eort by showing (among other results), that the fragment (where only the operators begins and during are allowed) is undecidable over discrete structures.  ...  The HalpernShoham logic is a modal logic of time intervals.  ...  In their paper, Halpern and Shoham show that (satisability of formulae of ) their logic is undecidable.  ...

The Last Paper on the Halpern-Shoham Interval Temporal Logic [article]

Jerzy Marcinkowski, Jakub Michaliszyn
2010 arXiv   pre-print
The Halpern-Shoham logic is a modal logic of time intervals.  ...  We contribute to this effort by showing - what we believe is quite an unexpected result - that the logic of subintervals, the fragment of the Halpern-Shoham where only the operator "during", or D, is allowed  ...  The operator O can be expressed using E and B. In their paper, Halpern and Shoham show that (satisfiability of formulae of) their logic is undecidable.  ...

Hybridizing Interval Temporal Logics: The First Step

Przemysław Wałęga
My main result is that the satisfiability problem in a hybridized fragment of Halpern-Shoham logic in which formulas are in a form of conjunction of Horn clauses and only box modal operators are allowed  ...  My work revolves around the latter type of methods which seem to be more human-like and more suitable for such applications as continuous process modelling.  ...  The author is supported by the Polish National Science Centre grant DEC-2011/02/A/HS1/00395.  ...

Interval Temporal Logics: a Journey

Dario Della Monica, Valentin Goranko, Angelo Montanari, Guido Sciavicco

Decidable and Undecidable Fragments of Halpern and Shoham's Interval Temporal Logic: Towards a Complete Classification [chapter]

Davide Bresolin, Dario Della Monica, Valentin Goranko, Angelo Montanari, Guido Sciavicco
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The full modal logic of Allen's relations, called HS, has been proved to be undecidable by Halpern and Shoham under very weak assumptions on the class of interval structures, and this result was discouraging  ...  This paper contributes to the characterization of the boundary between decidability and undecidability of HS fragments.  ...  Theorem 1 (Halpern and Shoham The undecidability of the satisfiability problem for HS in all the classes Theorem 1 refers to immediately follows.  ...

Horn Fragments of the Halpern-Shoham Interval Temporal Logic

Davide Bresolin, Agi Kurucz, Emilio Muñoz-Velasco, Vladislav Ryzhikov, Guido Sciavicco, Michael Zakharyaschev
2017 ACM Transactions on Computational Logic  
We investigate the satisfiability problem for Horn fragments of the Halpern-Shoham interval temporal logic depending on the type (box or diamond) of the interval modal operators, the type of the underlying  ...  Satisfiability of binary Horn formulas with both boxes and diamonds is always undecidable under the irreflexive semantics.  ...  Here we show that HS ✷ horn has sufficient counting power to make it undecidable (Theorem 4.5), and that even the seemingly very limited expressiveness of HS ✷ core is still enough to make it PSPACE-hard  ...

Decidability of Model Checking Multi-Agent Systems with Regular Expressions against Epistemic HS Specifications

Jakub Michaliszyn, Piotr Witkowski
2019 Proceedings of the Twenty-Eighth International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
Epistemic Halpern-Shoham logic (EHS) is an interval temporal logic defined to verify properties of Multi-Agent Systems.  ...  We achieve this by reducing the model checking problem to the satisfiability problem of Monadic Second-Order Logic on trees.  ...  Acknowledgements The first author was supported by Polish National Science Centre grant 2014/15/D/ST6/00719.  ...

A First Study of the Horn Fragment of the Modal Logic of Time Intervals

Davide Bresolin, Emilio Muñoz-Velasco, Guido Sciavicco
2014 Italian Conference on Computational Logic  
The most influential propositional interval-based logic is probably Halpern's and Shoham Modal Logic of Time Intervals, a.k.a. HS.  ...  Here, we approach this problem by considering the Horn fragment of HS and proving that the satisfiability problem remains undecidable, at least for discrete linear orders.  ...  Hence, we can assume w.l.o.g. that all configurations have the same length and that they are long enough to contain the relevant part of the tape. hAiu ^[U ](u !

Modal Logics of Topological Relations

Carsten Lutz, Frank Wolter, Yde Venema
2006 Logical Methods in Computer Science  
As our undecidability results also capture logics based on the real line, they improve upon undecidability results for interval temporal logics by Halpern and Shoham.  ...  The complexity ranges from (undecidable and) recursively enumerable to highly undecidable, where the recursively enumerable logics are obtained by considering substructures of structures induced by topological  ...  Acknowledgement The authors wish to acknowledge helpful comments from two anonymous referees.  ...

That, in particular, holds for most fragments of Halpern and Shoham's interval modal logic HS.  ...  The validity/satisfiability problem for most propositional interval temporal logics is (highly) undecidable, under very weak assumptions on the class of interval structures in which they are interpreted  ...  The first major step in this direction was taken by Halpern and Shoham themselves in their original paper, where they show that undecidability results for HS hold even if one restricts the logic to its  ...
