Causal Networks and Nonmonotonic Temporal Reasoning

Abstract

We show that the theory of causation that makes use of causal networks is intimately related to nonmonotonic temporal reasoning. Applying the theory of causal networks in a logical context yields a new approach to nonmonotonic temporal reasoning that can be proven to be a generalization and/or correction of many existing ones, and that provides new insights on the old question on how, and whether at all, causation may be defined in logical terms.
