A proof theoretical approach to default reasoning I: tableaux for default logic

1996 Journal of Logic and Computation  
We present a general proof theoretical methodology for default systems. Given a default theory W, D , the default rules D are simply understood as restrictions on the tableaux construction of the logic. Different default approaches have their own way of understanding these restrictions and executing them. For each default approach (such as Reiter, Brewka or Lukaszewicz), the allowable default extensions can be obtained from the default tableau construction. The advantage of our approach,
