The Abductive Event Calculus as a General Framework for Temporal Databases

  title={The Abductive Event Calculus as a General Framework for Temporal Databases},
  author={Kristof Van Belleghem and Marc Denecker and Danny De Schreye},
In earlier work, we have shown that the formalism of ab-ductive logic programs with FOL integrity constraints provides, under a completion semantics, the same declarative expressivity for representing incomplete information as full rst order logic. We have shown how the combination of this formalism with a variant of the Event Calculus of Kowalski and Sergot results in a correct and very expressive framework for temporal reasoning and representation. In this paper we demonstrate how this… CONTINUE READING
