The Semantics of Predicate Logic as a Programming Language
The operational and fixpoint semantics of predicate logic programs are defined, and the connections with the proof theory and model theory of logic are investigated. Expand

An Abstract, Argumentation-Theoretic Approach to Default Reasoning
Abstract We present an abstract framework for default reasoning, which includes Theorist, default logic, logic programming, autoepistemic logic, non-monotonic modal logics, and certain instances of circumscription as special cases. Expand

Predicate Logic as Programming Language
A stroller having side frame sections which are adapted to fold longitudinally and also laterally toward and away from one another, with a flexible seat and flexible seat back extending therebetween, and with preferably transparent side panels extending vertically from the seat back to the side sections of the frame, to retain a child between the side panels both in a downwardly retracted generally horizontal position of the seatback and in upper variously inclined positions thereof.

Algorithm = logic + control
The notion that computation = controlled deduction was first proposed by Hayes [19] and more recently by Bibel [2] and Vaughn-Pratt [31]. Expand

The British Nationality Act as a logic program
The formalization of legislation and the development of computer systems to assist with legal problem solving provide a rich domain for developing and testing artificial-intelligence technology. Expand
