A Proof Theory for Description Logics (SpringerBriefs in by Alexandre Rademaker

By Alexandre Rademaker

Description Logics (DLs) is a relatives of formalisms used to symbolize wisdom of a site. they're built with a proper logic-based semantics. wisdom illustration structures in line with description logics supply quite a few inference functions that deduce implicit wisdom from the explicitly represented knowledge.

A evidence concept for Description Logics introduces Sequent Calculi and ordinary Deduction for a few DLs (ALC, ALCQ). Cut-elimination and Normalization are proved for the calculi. the writer argues that such platforms can increase the extraction of computational content material from DLs proofs for rationalization purposes.
