Completeness proofs that generalize the Anderson-Bledsoe excess literal argument are developed for calculi other than resolution. A simple proof of the completeness of regular, connected tableaux for formulas in conjunctive normal form (CNF) is presented. These techniques also provide completeness results for some inference mechanisms that do not rely on(More)
The goal of knowledge compilation is to enable fast queries. Prior approaches had the goal of small (i.e., polynomial in the size of the initial knowledge bases) compiled knowledge bases. Typically, query-response time is linear, so that the efficiency of querying the compiled knowledge base depends on its size. In this paper, a target for knowledge(More)
