  author={Vladimir Lifschitz and Fangkai Yang},
Nonmonotonic causal logic is a knowledge representation language designed for describing domains that involve actions and change. Problems related to action domains described in this language can be often solved using computational methods of answer set programming. This idea has led researchers at the University of Potsdam to the development of COALA, a compiler from action languages to answer set programming. Our goal is to address a significant limitation of the theory that COALA is based on… CONTINUE READING
