Description Logics That Count, and What They Can and Cannot Count (Extended Abstract)

Franz Baader, Filippo De Bortoli
2020 International Workshop on Description Logics  
Simple counting quantifiers that can be used to compare the number of role successors of an individual or the cardinality of a concept with a fixed natural number have been employed in Description Logics  ...  Basically, we showed there that ALCSCC ∞ concepts can go beyond first-order logic (recall the concept description succ(|r ∩ A| = |r ∩ ¬A|) mentioned earlier) and determined a sub-logic of ALCSCC ∞ , called  ...

A Formalization and Proof of the Extended Church-Turing Thesis -Extended Abstract-

Nachum Dershowitz, Evgenia Falkovich
2012 Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science  
We prove the Extended Church-Turing Thesis: Every effective algorithm can be efficiently simulated by a Turing machine.  ...  This is accomplished by emulating an effective algorithm via an abstract state machine, and simulating such an abstract state machine by a random access machine, representing data as a minimal term graph  ...  Introduction The Church-Turing Thesis asserts that all effectively computable numeric functions are recursive and, likewise, they can be computed by a Turing machine, or-more precisely-can be simulated  ...

Standard State Space Models of Unawareness (Extended Abstract)

Peter Fritz, Harvey Lederman
2016 Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science  
The impossibility theorem of Dekel, Lipman and Rustichini has been thought to demonstrate that standard state-space models cannot be used to represent unawareness.  ...  We then distinguish three notions of awareness, and argue that although one of them may not be adequately modeled using standard state spaces, there is no reason to think that standard state spaces cannot  ...  In fact, the model used in the above proof of Theorem 2 can also be used to show that DLR's other two results cannot be extended either.  ...

Abstracting abstract control

James Ian Johnson, David Van Horn
2014 Proceedings of the 10th ACM Symposium on Dynamic languages - DLS '14  
Recent advances have shown that higher-order programs can be approximated with pushdown systems.  ...  to dynamic language analysis since all that is required is a machine description of the interpreter.  ...  The basic idea is that abstract machines implement a language's concrete semantics, so we transform them slightly so that they also implement a language's abstract semantics (thus "abstracting" abstract  ...

Lagrangian Decomposition for Classical Planning (Extended Abstract)

Florian Pommerening, Gabriele Röger, Malte Helmert, Hadrien Cambazad, Louis-Martin Rousseau, Domenico Salvagnin
2020 Proceedings of the Twenty-Ninth International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
This allows us to view the computation as an iterative process that can be seeded with any cost partitioning and that improves over time.  ...  In the case of non-negative cost partitioning of abstraction heuristics the computation reduces to independent shortest path problems and does not require an LP solver.  ...  This supports predictive abilities beyond what those features can provide individually and can be interpreted as using a logical conjunction 'AND' to combine these fea- tures F x (u s ) = F int (u s )×  ...

Lost in Abstraction: Monotonicity in Multi-Threaded Programs (Extended Technical Report) [article]

Alexander Kaiser, Daniel Kroening, Thomas Wahl
2014 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we show that the act of obtaining finite-data thread abstractions for model checking can be at odds with monotonicity: Predicate-abstracting certain widely used monotone software results  ...  We demonstrate how the abstract programs can be modified into monotone ones, without affecting safety properties of the non-monotone abstraction.  ...  As a result, their technique cannot be extended to unbounded thread counts with well quasi-ordered systems technology.  ...

Some Programming Languages Suggested by Game Models (Extended Abstract)

John Longley
2009 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
We consider a simple and well-known category of alternating games (also known as sequential data structures) and several categories derived from it.  ...  The quest for such languages results in a novel selection of language primitives for state encapsulation, coroutining and backtracking.  ...  we ask what programming languages might correspond to them (in the sense of full abstraction and definability).  ...
