Towards a Symmetric Treatment of Satisfaction and Conflicts in Quantified Boolean Formula Evaluation [chapter]

Lintao Zhang, Sharad Malik
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we describe a new framework for evaluating Quantified Boolean Formulas (QBF). The new framework is based on the Davis-Putnam (DPLL) search algorithm.  ...  We show that in a QBF setting, conflicting leaves and satisfying leaves of the search tree both provide valuable information to the solver in a symmetric way.  ...  A symmetric treatment of satisfaction and conflict is highly desirable (and useful) and is the focus of this paper.  ...

A Framework for Concrete Reputation-Systems

Karl Krukow, Mogens Nielsen, Vladimiro Sassone
2005 BRICS Report Series  
We provide a mathematical framework for a class of simple reputation-based systems.  ...  A naturally occurring problem becomes how to efficiently re-evaluate a policy when new behavioural information is available.  ...  (∀ or ∃), and φ is a quantifier-free boolean formula (i.e., a propositional formula) with fv (φ) ⊆ {x 1 , . . . , x n }.  ...

Management of Inconsistencies in Data Integration

Ekaterini Ioannou, Slawek Staworko, Marc Herbstritt
2013 Dagstuhl Publications  
One of the most challenging tasks for data integration is handling the inconsistencies that appear in the integrated data in an efficient and effective manner.  ...  In this chapter, we provide a survey on techniques introduced for handling inconsistencies in data integration, focusing on two groups.  ...  This check allows to compute consistent query answers to arbitrary Boolean quantifier-free queries: if we take a Boolean quantifier-free query in CNF Φ = Ψ 1 ∧ . . . ∧ Ψ n , then true is not the consistent  ...

From boolean algebra to unified algebra

Eric C. R. Hehner
2004 The Mathematical intelligencer  
A large part of the answer may be in the terminology and symbols used, and in the explanations of boolean algebra found in textbooks.  ...  This paper points out some of the problems delaying the acceptance and use of boolean algebra, and suggests some solutions.  ...  Dijkstra, Wim Hesselink, and Jim Grundy corrected some errors and caused me to improve some explanations.  ...

Deontic Logics Based on Boolean Algebra [chapter]

Pablo F. Castro, Piotr Kulicki
2013 Outstanding Contributions to Logic  
These combinators resemble boolean operators, and therefore the theory of boolean algebra offers a well-known mathematical framework to study the properties of the classic deontic operators when applied  ...  Some standard action combinators are action conjunction, choice between actions and not doing a given action.  ...  Using v we define a satisfaction relationship A between boolean algebras, valuation functions, and formulae, as follows: • A , v A α = β ⇐⇒ v(α) = v(β ). • A , v A Forb(α) ⇐⇒ v(α) ∈ F. • A , v A Perm(α  ...

Only knowing with degrees of confidence

Arild Waaler, Johan W. Klüwer, Tore Langholm, Espen H. Lian
2007 Journal of Applied Logic  
A new logic of belief (in the "only knowing" family) with confidence levels is presented.  ...  The article also contains a conceptual analysis of basic notions like belief, co-belief and degrees of confidence.  ...  Observe that all points in a model agree on the truth value of every completely modalized formula. Hence, for such formulae the notions of satisfaction and truth in a model coincide.  ...

Augmenting tractable fragments of abstract argumentation

Wolfgang Dvořák, Sebastian Ordyniak, Stefan Szeider
2012 Artificial Intelligence  
We present a new approach to the efficient solution of important computational problems that arise in the context of abstract argumentation.  ...  Other tractable fragments such as the fragments of symmetrical and bipartite frameworks seem to prohibit an augmentation: the acceptance problems are already intractable for frameworks at distance 1 from  ...  Acknowledgements We thank the anonymous reviewers for their valuable suggestions that helped to improve the presentation of the paper.  ...

Theorem Proving and Algebra [article]

Joseph A. Goguen
2021 arXiv   pre-print
This book can be seen either as a text on theorem proving that uses techniques from general algebra, or else as a text on general algebra illustrated and made concrete by practical exercises in theorem  ...  However, we do emphasize equational logic, and for simplicity we use only the OBJ3 software system, though it is used in a rather flexible manner.  ...  However, we will show that explicit quantifiers E9 are necessary for an adequate treatment of satisfaction.  ...

Consistent document engineering

Also, I would like to Introductory Survey It proposes changes to one of the variables k or d, in order to invert the truth value of k = key(d), if its boolean result is False.  ...  The hint for the atomic formula dId(m) = kId(d) sets the field dId of the manual m only; we would never change the key definition d in case dId(m) = kId(d) is violated.  ...  Our incremental algorithm deviates from brute force evaluation mostly in the treatment of quantified formulae. • Due to miniscoping, only atomic formulae can appear in a negated context.  ...

Computational Complexity of Deciding Provability in Linear Logic and its Fragments [article]

Florian Chudigiewitsch
2021 arXiv   pre-print
A central problem of the logic is the question whether a given list of formulas is provable with the calculus.  ...  We prove an original complexity characterization of a fragment of the logic and present ideas for a new, structural approach to the examination of provability in linear logic.  ...  We prove this by reduction from QBF in two major steps: • We show that the evaluation of quantifier-free Boolean functions can be simulated by cut-free proof search in MALL. • We then show that the evaluation  ...

Possibility Theory and Its Applications: Where Do We Stand? [chapter]

Didier Dubois, Henry Prade
2015 Springer Handbook of Computational Intelligence  
Shackle also introduces a notion of conditional possibility, whereby the degree of surprise of a conjunction of two events A and B is equal to the maximum of the degree of surprise of A, and of the degree  ...  Possibility theory lies at the crossroads between fuzzy sets, probability and non-monotonic reasoning. Possibility theory can be cast either in an ordinal or in a numerical setting.  ...  On the other hand, a possibilistic treatment of uncertainty and exceptions can be performed on top of a description logic in a possibilistic logic style [105] .  ...

Finally we briefly discuss the difficult aspects of validation and evaluation.  ...  We first present different types of information encountered in fusion problems, and different aims of the fusion process.  ...  For instance, in expert opinion pooling, it means the calibration of experts for evaluating their faithfulness and their tendency toward overconfidence.  ...
