Whither Semantics? [article]

Samson Abramsky
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We discuss how mathematical semantics has evolved, and suggest some new directions for future work.  ...  As an example, we discuss some recent work on encapsulating model comparison games as comonads, in the context of finite model theory.  ...  A case study As a case study for this theme, we shall give a brief overview of some recent work on relating categorical semantics, which exemplifies Structure, to finite model theory, which exemplifies  ...

Integrating semantics and compilation

Peter Gottschling, Andrew Lumsdaine
2008 Proceedings of the 7th international conference on Generative programming and component engineering - GPCE '08  
Concepts are a recently proposed extension to C++ for the direct linguistic support of generic programming.  ...  Concepts provide powerful type-checking capabilities for generic programming and the semantics associated with them present new and interesting capabilities for library-compiler interactions.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors are grateful to Amr Sabry, Karl Meerbergen, Toon Knappen, and Laura Hopkins for constructive and inspiring discussions.  ...

Mining the Semantic Web

Achim Rettinger, Uta Lösch, Volker Tresp, Claudia d'Amato, Nicola Fanizzi
2012 Data mining and knowledge discovery  
Third, the construction of ontological knowledge bases suitable for advanced reasoning techniques is complex, which ultimately results in a lack of such expressive real-world data sets with large amounts  ...  This is intended to show the breadth and general potential of this exiting new research and application area for data mining.  ...  This section is intended to give an overview of real world SW-related data mining tasks as listed in Sec. 2 by reporting our recent experimental results.  ...

Verifiable semantic difference languages

Thibaut Girka, David Mentré, Yann Régis-Gianas
2017 Proceedings of the 19th International Symposium on Principles and Practice of Declarative Programming - PPDP '17  
What if the programmer was given semantically grounded and high-level difference languages?  ...  Using these languages, the intent behind patches could be expressed, mechanically checked and reviewed in a high-level and semantic-aware setting, paving the way for certified evolution of software.  ...  in the future.  ...

Quantitative Automata under Probabilistic Semantics [article]

Krishnendu Chatterjee, Thomas A. Henzinger, Jan Otop
2019 arXiv   pre-print
We show that several problems that are undecidable for the classical questions of emptiness and universality become decidable under the probabilistic semantics.  ...  Automata with monitor counters, where the transitions do not depend on counter values, and nested weighted automata are two expressive automata-theoretic frameworks for quantitative properties.  ...  Quantitative automata and logic have been extensively and intensively studied in recent years. The book [26] presents an excellent collection of results of weighted automata on finite words.  ...

Geospatial Semantics [chapter]

Yingjie Hu
2018 Comprehensive Geographic Information Systems  
Meanwhile, the arrival of big geo data, especially the large amount of unstructured text data on the Web, and the fast development of natural language processing methods enable new research directions  ...  Geospatial semantics is a broad field that involves a variety of research areas. The term semantics refers to the meaning of things, and is in contrast with the term syntactics.  ...  In recent years, a lot of research on geospatial semantics has been conducted, and the results are published in journals or presented in conferences, such as the Conference on Spatial Information Theory  ...

Distance Semantics for Belief Revision [article]

Daniel Lehmann, Menachem Magidor, Karl Schlechta
2002 arXiv   pre-print
A vast and interesting family of natural semantics for belief revision is defined. Suppose one is given a distance d between any two models.  ...  One may then define the revision of a theory K by a formula a as the theory defined by the set of all those models of a that are closest, by d, to the set of models of K.  ...  Acknowledgement We would like to thank a referee for his very insightful comments, which have helped to improve the paper.  ...

A contextual semantics for concurrent Haskell with futures

David Sabel, Manfred Schmidt-Schauß
2011 Proceedings of the 13th international ACM SIGPLAN symposium on Principles and practices of declarative programming - PPDP '11  
As semantic model we introduce and analyze the process calculus CHF, which represents a typed core language of Concurrent Haskell extended by concurrent futures.  ...  An important result is that call-by-need and call-by-name evaluation are equivalent in CHF, since they induce the same program equivalence.  ...  Results We provide a semantic foundation for Concurrent Haskell extended by futures.  ...
