How to Decide Query Containment under Constraints Using a Description Logic [chapter]

Ian Horrocks, Ulrike Sattler, Sergio Tessaris, Stephan Tobies
Logic for Programming and Automated Reasoning  
Discussion In this paper we have sketched how the problem of query containment under constraints can be decided using a KB (schema plus ABox) satisfiability tester for the SHIQ description logic, and we  ...  Introduction Query containment under constraints is the problem of determining whether the result of one query is contained in the result of another query for every database satisfying a given set of constraints  ...

How Can Reasoners Simplify Database Querying (And Why Haven't They Done It Yet)?

Michael Benedikt

Adding ABoxes to a Description Logic with Uniqueness Constraints via Path Agreements

Vitaliy L. Khizder, David Toman, Grant E. Weddell
2007 International Workshop on Description Logics  
We now know that the addition of a concept constructor called a Path Functional Dependency (PFD) to the Boolean-complete description logic DLF leads to undecidability of ABox consistency for DLF .  ...  This is accomplished indirectly by adding an additional concept constructor for rooted path equality, which has the added benefit of increasing the utility of DLF for reasoning about query containment  ...  Description logics have also been used for reasoning about query containment in the presence of rich database schema [5, 10] .  ...

Query Answering over Complete Data with Conceptual Constraints

Nhung Ngo
2016 Proceedings of the 2016 on SIGMOD'16 PhD Symposium - SIGMOD'16 PhD  
We first study the complexity of query answering problem under description logic constraints in the presence of complete data and show that complete data makes query answering become harder than query  ...  To deal with the problem, the ontology-based data access approach uses ontologies to capture both constraints and databases.  ...  Acknowledgement This research is partially supported by Free University of Bolzano, under project ORMiE.  ...

Knowledge Representation using Schema Tuple Queries

Michael Minock
2003 Knowledge Representation Meets Databases  
These properties enable the determination of query containment, equivalence and disjointness. Given this, the identified query class possesses many of the desirable properties of description logics.  ...  In particular a subclass of the schema tuple queries is identified that is decidable for satisfiability and is closed over syntactic query difference.  ...  Description Logics The description logics [7] [13] community has investigated 'query' containment under the name of concept subsumption.  ...

It can also be used in type-checkers and optimizing compilers that need to perform all kinds of compile-time analyses involving XPath queries and XML tree constraints.  ...  The tool can be used in query optimizers, in order to prove soundness of query rewriting.  ...  Then, we will demonstrate how to check for XPath expressions emptiness under type constraints, as well as path containment and equivalence.  ...

Satisfiability Checking and Conjunctive Query Answering in Description Logics with Global and Local Cardinality Constraints

Franz Baader, Bartosz Bednarczyk, Sebastian Rudolph
2019 International Workshop on Description Logics  
We prove that decidability of querying can be regained if global and local constraints are not mixed and the global constraints are appropriately restricted. locally, i.e., they refer to the role successors  ...  The logic ALCSCC ++ As in [1, 4] , we use the quantifier-free fragment of Boolean Algebra with Presburger Arithmetic (QFBAPA) to express our constraints.  ...  Let R be an RCBox with a model I. Then pump(I) is a model of R. Now we explain how to use the pumping method from the Definition 4 to erase non-tree query matches and obtain a counter-model. Lemma 6.  ...
