A complete and sound inference system, termed LUST-resolution (Linear resolution with Unrestricted Selection function based on Trees), allowing the use of arbitrary selection functions is presented. The inference system extends SL-resolution developed independently by Kowalski and Kuehner [3], by Reiter [7] and by Loveland [4] to permit any literal in a clause to be used in an extensiofl operation.’ Briefly, in SL-resolution, clauses (called chains) are represented as sequences of literals… CONTINUE READING
