Aquarius is a distributed theorem prover for first order logic with equality, developed for a network of workstations. Given as input a theorem proving problem and a number n of active nodes, Aquarius creates n deductive processes, one on each workstation, which work cooperatively toward the solution of the problem. Aquarius realizes a number of variants of a general methodology for distributed deduction, called deduction by ClauseDiffusion, which appeared first in (Bonacina 1992). The… CONTINUE READING
