Constantdepth frege systems with counting axioms polynomially simulate nullstellensatz refutations. August 05 2003
 Comment
, 1998
"... Abstract. We show that constantdepth Frege systems with counting axioms modulo m polynomially simulate Nullstellensatz refutations modulo m. Central to this is a new definition of reducibility from propositional formulas to systems of polynomials. Using our definition of reducibility, most previous ..."

Counting axioms do not polynomially simulate counting gates
 In Proceedings 42nd Annual Symposium on Foundations of Computer Science
, 2001
"... For every prime m ≥ 2, we give a family of tautologies that require superpolynomial size constantdepth Frege proofs from Countm axioms, and whose algebraic translations have constantdegree, polynomial size polynomial calculus refutations over Zm. This shows that constantdepth Frege systems with ..."

with counting axioms modulo m do not polynomially simulate constantdepth Frege systems with counting gates modulo m. Our primary technical tool is a switching lemma that uses random substitutions of one variable for another in addition to random 0/1 restrictions. 1
Good Degree Bounds on Nullstellensatz Refutations of the Induction Principle
 IEEE Conference on Computational Complexity
, 1996
"... This paper gives nearly optimal, logarithmic upper and lower bounds on the minimum degree of Nullstellensatz refutations (i.e., polynomials) of the propositional induction principle. 1 Introduction A new propositional proof system based on Hilbert's Nullstellensatz was recently introduced in ..."

"... Term Rewriting Systems play an important role in various areas, such as abstract data type specifications, implementations of functional programming languages and automated deduction. In this chapter we introduce several of the basic comcepts and facts for TRS's. Specifically, we discuss Abstra ..."

Automatic verification of finitestate concurrent systems using temporal logic specifications
 ACM Transactions on Programming Languages and Systems
, 1986
"... We give an efficient procedure for verifying that a finitestate concurrent system meets a specification expressed in a (propositional, branchingtime) temporal logic. Our algorithm has complexity linear in both the size of the specification and the size of the global state graph for the concurrent ..."

The StructureMapping Engine: Algorithm and Examples
 Artificial Intelligence
, 1989
"... This paper describes the StructureMapping Engine (SME), a program for studying analogical processing. SME has been built to explore Gentner's Structuremapping theory of analogy, and provides a "tool kit" for constructing matching algorithms consistent with this theory. Its flexibili ..."

flexibility enhances cognitive simulation studies by simplifying experimentation. Furthermore, SME is very efficient, making it a useful component in machine learning systems as well. We review the Structuremapping theory and describe the design of the engine. We analyze the complexity of the algorithm

A Bayesian method for the induction of probabilistic networks from data

"... This paper presents a Bayesian method for constructing probabilistic networks from databases. In particular, we focus on constructing Bayesian belief networks. Potential applications include computerassisted hypothesis testing, automated scientific discovery, and automated construction of probabili ..."

of probabilistic expert systems. We extend the basic method to handle missing data and hidden (latent) variables. We show how to perform probabilistic inference by averaging over the inferences of multiple belief networks. Results are presented of a preliminary evaluation of an algorithm for constructing a belief
Logical foundations of objectoriented and framebased languages

We propose a novel formalism, called Frame Logic (abbr., Flogic), that accounts in a clean and declarative fashion for most of the structural aspects of objectoriented and framebased languages. These features include object identity, complex objects, inheritance, polymorphic types, query methods, encapsulation, and others. In a sense, Flogic stands in the same relationship to the objectoriented paradigm as classical predicate calculus stands to relational programming. Flogic has a modeltheoretic semantics and a sound and complete resolutionbased proof theory. A small number of fundamental concepts that come from objectoriented programming have direct representation in Flogic; other, secondary aspects of this paradigm are easily modeled as well. The paper also discusses semantic issues pertaining to programming with a deductive objectoriented language based on a subset of Flogic.
