Logic for Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Book Excerpt:

Logic and its components (propositional, first-order,non-classical) play a key role in Computer Science and ArtificialIntelligence. While a large amount of information exists scatteredthroughout various media (books, journal articles, webpages, etc.),the diffuse nature of these sources is problematic and logic as atopic benefits from a unified approach. Logic for Computer Scienceand Artificial Intelligence utilizes this format, surveying thetableaux, resolution, Davis and Putnam methods, logic programming,as well as for example unification and subsumption. Fornon-classical logics, the translation method is detailed. Logic for Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence is theclassroom-tested result of several years of teaching at GrenobleINP (Ensimag). It is conceived to allow self-instruction for abeginner with basic knowledge in Mathematics and Computer Science,but is also highly suitable for use in traditional courses. Thereader is guided by clearly motivated concepts, introductions,historical remarks, side notes concerning connections with otherdisciplines, and numerous exercises, complete with detailedsolutions, The title provides the reader with the tools needed toarrive naturally at practical implementations of the concepts andtechniques discussed, allowing for the design of algorithms tosolve problems.

Logic for Artificial Intelligence and Information Technology Book Excerpt:

Logic for Artificial Intelligence and Information Technology is based on student notes used to teach logic to second year undergraduates and Artificial Intelligence to graduate students at the University of London since1984, first at Imperial College and later at King's College. Logic has been applied to a wide variety of subjects such as theoretical computer science, software engineering, hardware design, logic programming, computational linguistics and artificial intelligence. In this way it has served to stimulate the research for clear conceptual foundations. Over the past 20 years many extensions of classical logic such as temporal, modal, relevance, fuzzy, probabilistic and non-monotoinic logics have been widely used in computer science and artificial intelligence, therefore requiring new formulations of classical logic, which can be modified to yield the effect of the new applied logics. The text introduces classical logic in a goal directed way which can easily deviate into discussing other applied logics. It defines the many types of logics and differences between them. Dov Gabbay, FRSC, FAvH, FRSA, FBCS, is Augustus De Morgan Professor of Logic at the University of London. He has written over 300 papers in logic and over 20 books. He is Editor-in-Chief of several leading journals and has published over 50 handbooks of logic volumes. He is a world authority on applied logics and is one of the directors and founder of the UK charity the International Federation of Computational Logic

Handbook of Logic in Artificial Intelligence and Logic Programming Volume 5 Logic Programming Book Excerpt:

The Handbook of Logic in Artificial Intelligence and Logic Programming is a multi-volume work covering all major areas of the application of logic to artificial intelligence and logic programming. The authors are chosen on an international basis and are leaders in the fields covered. Volume 5 is the last in this well-regarded series. Logic is now widely recognized as one of the foundational disciplines of computing. It has found applications in virtually all aspects of the subject, from software and hardware engineering to programming languages and artificial intelligence. In response to the growing need for an in-depth survey of these applications the Handbook of Logic in Artificial Intelligence and its companion, the Handbook of Logic in Computer Science have been created. The Handbooks are a combination of authoritative exposition, comprehensive survey, and fundamental research exploring the underlying themes in the various areas. Some mathematical background is assumed, and much of the material will be of interest to logicians and mathematicians. Volume 5 focuses particularly on logic programming. The chapters, which in many cases are of monograph length and scope, emphasize possible unifying themes.

Logic Based Artificial Intelligence Book Excerpt:

The use of mathematical logic as a formalism for artificial intelligence was recognized by John McCarthy in 1959 in his paper on Programs with Common Sense. In a series of papers in the 1960's he expanded upon these ideas and continues to do so to this date. It is now 41 years since the idea of using a formal mechanism for AI arose. It is therefore appropriate to consider some of the research, applications and implementations that have resulted from this idea. In early 1995 John McCarthy suggested to me that we have a workshop on Logic-Based Artificial Intelligence (LBAI). In June 1999, the Workshop on Logic-Based Artificial Intelligence was held as a consequence of McCarthy's suggestion. The workshop came about with the support of Ephraim Glinert of the National Science Foundation (IIS-9S2013S), the American Association for Artificial Intelligence who provided support for graduate students to attend, and Joseph JaJa, Director of the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies who provided both manpower and financial support, and the Department of Computer Science. We are grateful for their support. This book consists of refereed papers based on presentations made at the Workshop. Not all of the Workshop participants were able to contribute papers for the book. The common theme of papers at the workshop and in this book is the use of logic as a formalism to solve problems in AI.

Logic for Programming Artificial Intelligence and Reasoning Book Excerpt:

This volume contains the papers presented at the Eighth International C- ference on Logic for Programming, Arti?cial Intelligence and Reasoning (LPAR 2001), held on December 3-7, 2001, at the University of Havana (Cuba), together with the Second International Workshop on Implementation of Logics. There were 112 submissions, of which 19 belonged to the special subm- sion category of experimental papers, intended to describe implementations or comparisons of systems, or experiments with systems. Each submission was - viewed by at least three program committee members and an electronic program committee meeting was held via the Internet. The high number of submissions caused a large amount of work, and we are very grateful to the other 31 PC members for their e?ciency and for the quality of their reviews and discussions. Finally, the committee decided to accept 40papers in the theoretical ca- gory, and 9 experimental papers. In addition to the refereed papers, this volume contains an extended abstract of the invited talk by Frank Wolter. Two other invited lectures were given by Matthias Baaz and Manuel Hermenegildo. Apart from the program committee, we would also like to thank the other people who made LPAR 2001 possible: the additional referees; the Local Arran- ` gements Chair Luciano Garc ́?a; Andr ́es Navarro and Oscar Guell, ̈ who ran the internet-based submission software and the program committee discussion so- ware at the LSI Department lab in Barcelona; and Bill McCune, whose program committee management software was used.

Logic for Programming Artificial Intelligence and Reasoning Book Excerpt:

This volume contains the papers presented at the 15th International Conference on Logic for Programming, Arti?cial Intelligence, and Reasoning (LPAR) held November22–27inDoha,QataronthepremisesoftheQatarcampusofCarnegie Mellon University. In its 15th edition, LPAR looked back at a rich history. The conference evolved out of the First and Second Russian Conferences on Logic Progr- ming, held in Irkutsk, in 1990, and aboard the ship “Michail Lomonosov” in 1991. The idea of organizing the conference came largely from Robert Kowalski, who also proposed the creation of the Russian Association for Logic Progr- ming. In 1992, it was decided to extend the scope of the conference. Due to considerableinterestinautomatedreasoningintheformerSovietUnion,thec- ference was renamed Logic Programming and Automated Reasoning (LPAR). Under this name three meetings were held during 1992–1994: again on board the ship “Michail Lomonosov” (1992), in St. Petersburg, Russia (1993), and on board the ship “Marshal Koshevoi” (1994). In 1999, the conference was held in Tbilisi, Georgia. At the suggestion of Michel Parigot,the conference changed its nameagaintoLogicforProgrammingandAutomatedReasoning(preservingthe acronym LPAR!) re?ecting an interest in additional areas of logic. LPAR 2000 was held on Reunion Island, France. In 2001, the name (but not the acronym) changed again to its current form. The 8th to the 14th meetings were held in the following locations: Havana, Cuba (2001) Tbilisi, Georgia (2002); Almaty, Kazakhstan(2003);Montevideo,Uruguay(2004);MontegoBay,Jamaica(2005); Phnom Penh, Cambodia (2006); and Yerevan, Armenia (2007).

This volume contains the papers selected for presentation at the conference and two abstracts from invited speakers. The programme committee selected these 25 papers from 12 countries out of 65 submissions from 17 countries. The rst JELIA meeting was in Rosco , France, ten years ago. Afterwards, it took place in the Netherlands, Germany, United Kingdom, Portugal, and now again in Germany. The proceedings of the last four meetings appeared in the Springer-Verlag LNCS series, and a selected series of papers of the English and the Portuguese meeting appeared as special issues in the Journal of Applied Non-Classical Logics and in the Journal of Automated Reasoning, respectively. The aim of JELIA was and still is to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and results in the domain of foundations of AI, focusing on rigorous descriptions of some aspects of intelligence. These descriptions are promoted by applications, and produced by logical tools and methods. The papers contained in this volume cover the following topics: 1. Logic programming 2. Epistemic logics 3. Theorem proving 4. Non-monotonic reasoning 5. Non-standard logics 6. Knowledge representation 7. Higher order logics We would like to warmly thank the authors, the invited speakers, the m- bers of the program committee, and the additional reviewers listed below. They all have made these proceedings possible and ensured their quality.
