The Distribution Semantics is Well-Defined for All Normal Programs

Fabrizio Riguzzi
2015 International Conference on Logic Programming  
The distribution semantics is an approach for integrating logic programming and probability theory that underlies many languages and has been successfully applied in many domains. When the program has function symbols, the semantics was defined for special cases: either the program has to be definite or the queries must have a finite number of finite explanations. In this paper we show that it is possible to define the semantics for all programs.
