Dynamic Logic

"... ed to be true under the valuation u iff there exists an a 2 N such that the formula x = y is true under the valuation u[x=a], where u[x=a] agrees with u everywhere except x, on which it takes the value a. This definition involves a metalogical operation that produces u[x=a] from u for all possibl ..."

square root of y, if it exists, would be the program x := 0 ; while x < y do x := x + 1: (1) In DL, such programs are firstclass objects on a par with formulas, complete with a collection of operators for forming compound programs inductively from a basis of primitive programs. To discuss
The Semantics of Predicate Logic as a Programming Language
 JOURNAL OF THE ACM

Sentences in firstorder predicate logic can be usefully interpreted as programs In this paper the operational and fixpoint semantics of predicate logic programs are defined, and the connections with the proof theory and model theory of logic are investigated It is concluded that operational seman ..."

Firstorder classical modal logic
 Studia Logica

"... Abstract. The paper focuses on extending to the first order case the semantical program for modalities first introduced by Dana Scott and Richard Montague. We focus on the study of neighborhood frames with constant domains and we offer a series of new completeness results for salient classical syst ..."

systems of first order modal logic. Among other results we show that it is possible to prove strong completeness results for normal systems without the Barcan Formula (like FOL+K) in terms of neighborhood frames with constant domains. The first order models we present permit the study of many epistemic
AgentSpeak(L): BDI Agents speak out in a logical computable language
, 1996
"... BeliefDesireIntention (BDI) agents have been investigated by many researchers from both a theoretical specification perspective and a practical design perspective. However, there still remains a large gap between theory and practice. The main reason for this has been the complexity of theoremprov ..."

In this paper, we provide an alternative formalization of BDI agents by providing an operational and proof
Uniform proofs as a foundation for logic programming
 ANNALS OF PURE AND APPLIED LOGIC
, 1991
"... A prooftheoretic characterization of logical languages that form suitable bases for Prologlike programming languages is provided. This characterization is based on the principle that the declarative meaning of a logic program, provided by provability in a logical system, should coincide with its ..."

that respects the interpretation of the logical connectives as search instructions. The concept of a uniform proof is used to define the notion of an abstract logic programming language, and it is shown that firstorder and higherorder Horn clauses with classical provability are examples of such a language
The Foundation of a Generic Theorem Prover
 Journal of Automated Reasoning
, 1989
"... Isabelle [28, 30] is an interactive theorem prover that supports a variety of logics. It represents rules as propositions (not as functions) and builds proofs by combining rules. These operations constitute a metalogic (or `logical framework') in which the objectlogics are formalized. Isabell ..."

. Isabelle is now based on higherorder logic  a precise and wellunderstood foundation. Examples illustrate use of this metalogic to formalize logics and proofs. Axioms for firstorder logic are shown sound and complete. Backwards proof is formalized by metareasoning about objectlevel entailment
Decidable Fragments of FirstOrder Modal Logics
 JOURNAL OF SYMBOLIC LOGIC
, 1999
"... The paper considers the set ML1 of firstorder polymodal formulas the modal operators in which can be applied to subformulas of at most one free variable. Using a mosaic technique, we prove a general satisfiability criterion for formulas in ML1, which reduces the modal satisfiability to the classica ..."

Bayesian Description Logics. In:

Abstract This chapter considers, on the one hand, extensions of Description Logics by features not available in the basic framework, but considered important for using Description Logics as a modeling language. In particular, it addresses the extensions concerning: concrete domain constraints; moda ..."

Topological Completeness of FirstOrder Modal Logic
"... As McKinsey and Tarski [20] showed, the Stone representation theorem for Boolean algebras extends to algebras with operators to give topological semantics for (classical) propositional modal logic, in which the “necessity ” operation is modeled by taking the interior of an arbitrary subset of a topo ..."
