The Well-Founded Semantics for General Logic Programs


A general logic program (abbreviated to \program" hereafter) is a set of rules that have both positive and negative subgoals. It is common to view a deductive database as a general logic program consisting of rules (IDB) sitting above elementary relations (EDB, facts). It is desirable to associate one Herbrand model with a program and think of that model as… (More)
