10th International Conference on Automated Deduction: by Robert S. Boyer, J Strother Moore (auth.), Mark E. Stickel

By Robert S. Boyer, J Strother Moore (auth.), Mark E. Stickel (eds.)

This quantity comprises the papers awarded on the tenth overseas convention on automatic Deduction (CADE-10). CADE is the most important discussion board at which examine on all facets of computerized deduction is gifted. even supposing automatic deduction learn can also be provided at extra common synthetic intelligence meetings, the CADE meetings don't have any peer within the focus and caliber in their contributions to this subject. The papers integrated diversity from idea to implementation and experimentation, from propositional to higher-order calculi and nonclassical logics; they refine and use a wealth of equipment together with answer, paramodulation, rewriting, crowning glory, unification and induction; and so they paintings with a number of purposes together with software verification, good judgment programming, deductive databases, and theorem proving in lots of domain names. the quantity additionally includes abstracts of 20 implementations of automatic deduction platforms. The authors of approximately part the papers are from the us, many are from Western Europe, and plenty of too are from the remainder of the area. The court cases of the fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth CADE meetings are released as Volumes 87, 138, a hundred and seventy, 230, 310 within the sequence Lecture Notes in laptop Science.

Example text

Thus the semantic proof system brings a solution to this problem by making use of problem domain knowledge represented in an interpretation. Now the question is how to design an interpretation for a given theorem. This is not a trivial question. It is difficult to automate since problem domain knowledge is usually required and it is hard to give a precise description of what is a suitable interpretation. The difficulty for a h u m a n to design an interpretation lies in the interpretation of the skolem functions [15].

Usually, however, a human has a natural interpretation in mind when he states a theorem. A method for designing interpretations for a set of clauses is proposed in [15]. the input clauses for the semantic proof system. The basic idea of Wang's method is to put together all the clauses containing the same uninterpreted symbol, often skolem function symbols, and use some interpretation rules to interpret the uninterpreted symbol. We will briefly present Wang's method and the modification below. 23 Given a natural interpretation I for a t h e o r e m and the natural interpretations of the function symbols and predicate symbols, we need to interpret the uninterpreted symbols.

L , where --,L1 v -4_,2 v • • • v --tLn is a clause in S. We have the following set of inference rules. For each Horn-like clause L : - L1, L2 . . . Ln, the clause rule M [ = E L , [Fo----*L1=> FI'-'+L1] , [FI"*L2 => Fz'+L2] . . . -~L The assumption axioms are F--,L=>F---~L if L E F I'---~--,L => P, -,L--,-~L L is a literal. L is a positive literal. Note that the semantic proof system differs from the modified problem reduction in that contrapositives are used and the semantic tests M I=~ L are added to the rules.
