We propose a new method of feature extraction that allows to apply pattern-recognition abilities of neural networks to data-mine automated proofs. We propose a new algorithm to represent proofs for first-order logic programs as feature vectors; and present its implementation. We test the method on a number of problems and implementation scenarios, using… (More)

Every variable-free logic program induces a P f P f-coalgebra on the set of atomic formulae in the program. The coalgebra p sends an atomic formula A to the set of the sets of atomic formulae in the antecedent of each clause for which A is the head. In an earlier paper, we identified a variable-free logic program with a P f P f-coalgebra on Set and showed… (More)

Coalgebra may be used to provide semantics for SLD-derivations, both finite and infinite. We first give such semantics to classical SLD-derivations, proving results such as adequacy, soundness and completeness. Then, based upon coalgebraic semantics, we propose a new sound and complete algorithm for parallel derivations. We analyse this new algorithm in… (More)

Coinductive definitions, such as that of an infinite stream, may often be described by elegant logic programs, but ones for which SLD-refutation is of no value as SLD-derivations fall into infinite loops. Such definitions give rise to questions of lazy corecursive derivations and parallelism, as execution of such logic programs can have both recursive and… (More)

In Constructive Type Theory, recursive and corecursive definitions are subject to syntactic restrictions which guarantee termination for recursive functions and productivity for corecursive functions. However, many terminating and productive functions do not pass the syntactic tests. Bove proposed in her thesis an elegant reformulation of the method of… (More)

Logic programming, a class of programming languages based on first-order logic, provides simple and efficient tools for goal-oriented proof-search. Logic programming supports recursive computations, and some logic programs resemble the inductive or coinductive definitions written in functional programming languages. In this paper, we give a coalgebraic… (More)

We demonstrate the interplay between learning and deductive algorithms in logic and neural networks. In particular, we show how learning algorithms recognised in neurocomputing can be used to built connectionist neural networks which simulate the work of semantic operator for logic programs with uncertainty and conventional algorithm of SLD-resolution.

We present a novel technique for combining statistical machine learning for proof-pattern recognition with symbolic methods for lemma discovery. The resulting tool, ACL2(ml), gathers proof statistics and uses statistical pattern-recognition to pre-processes data from libraries, and then suggests auxiliary lemmas in new proofs by analogy with already seen… (More)

We propose a (limited) solution to the problem of constructing stream values defined by recursive equations that do not respect the guardedness condition. The guardedness condition is imposed on definitions of corecursive functions in Coq, AGDA, and other higher-order proof assistants. In this paper, we concentrate in particular on those non-guarded… (More)

Hölldobler and Kalinke showed how, given a propositional logic program P , a 3-layer feedforward artificial neural network may be constructed, using only binary threshold units, which can compute the familiar immediate-consequence operator TP associated with P. In this chapter, essentially these results are established for a class of logic programs which… (More)
