This tutorial covers the very basics of Description Logics (DLs): first, we present the primary DL ALC, namely its syntax, semantics, and reasoning problems, making use of a running example. Next, we discuss a few important extensions and explain DL’s relationship with first order logic, with modal logic, with OWL, and with rule-based formalisms, and give a brief sketch of tableau-based reasoning algorithms for DLs.
