W LODZIMIERZ DRABENT. SLDNF-resolution is a standard operational semantics for negation as ((nite) failure. For some programs and goals SLDNF-resolution is incomplete with respect to the Kunen semantics (program completion in 3-valued logic). Intuitively, the reason of incompleteness is oundering. This fact has however not been proven formally. The existing papers study syntactic classes of programs and goals for which SLDNF-resolution is complete. We prove completeness of SLDNF-resolution for… CONTINUE READING
