Query Answering for OWLDL with Rules
 Journal of Web Semantics
, 2004
"... Both OWLDL and functionfree Horn rules are decidable fragments of firstorder logic with interesting, yet orthogonal expressive power. A combination of OWLDL and rules is desirable for the Semantic Web; however, it might easily lead to the undecidability of interesting reasoning problems. Here, w ..."

A Fixpoint Semantics and an SLDResolution Calculus for Modal Logic Programs
, 2001
"... We propose a modal logic programming language called MProlog, which is as expressive as the general modal Horn fragment. We give a fixpoint semantics and an SLDresolution calculus for MProlog in all of the basic serial modal logics KD, T, KDB, B, KD4, S4, KD5, KD45, and S5. For an MProlog program P ..."

VHorn: a Hornbased secondorder theory of arithmetic
, 2000
"... In this thesis we present a secondorder theory of arithmetic VHorn, which encompasses polytime reasoning. It is equivalent in power to Zambella's Pdef and Cook's QP V or P V1; however, whereas those systems contain function symbols for all polytime functions, VHorn achieves the same po ..."

A direct algorithm for type inference in the rank2 fragment of the secondorder λcalculus
, 1993
"... We study the problem of type inference for a family of polymorphic type disciplines containing the power of CoreML. This family comprises all levels of the stratification of the secondorder lambdacalculus by "rank" of types. We show that typability is an undecidable problem at every ran ..."

Simplifying the signature in secondorder unification
, 2009
"... SecondOrder Unification is undecidable even for very specialized fragments. The signature plays a crucial role in these fragments. If all symbols are monadic, then the problem is NPcomplete, whereas it is enough to have just one binary constant to lose decidability. In this work we reduce SecondO ..."

HigherOrder Horn Clauses
 JOURNAL OF THE ACM
, 1990
"... A generalization of Horn clauses to a higherorder logic is described and examined as a basis for logic programming. In qualitative terms, these higherorder Horn clauses are obtained from the firstorder ones by replacing firstorder terms with simply typed #terms and by permitting quantification ..."

by interweaving higherorder unification with backchaining and goal reductions, and constitutes a higherorder generalization of SLDresolution. These results have a practical realization in the higherorder logic programming language called λProlog.
Decidable Fragments of FirstOrder Temporal Logics
, 1999
"... In this paper, we introduce a new fragment of the firstorder temporal language, called the monodic fragment, in which all formulas beginning with a temporal operator (Since or Until) have at most one free variable. We show that the satisfiability problem for monodic formulas in various linear time ..."

structures can be reduced to the satisfiability problem for a certain fragment of classical firstorder logic. This reduction is then used to single out a number of decidable fragments of firstorder temporal logics and of twosorted firstorder logics in which one sort is intended for temporal reasoning
Ordering Constraints over Feature Trees Expressed in Secondorder Monadic Logic
 Information and Computation
, 1998
"... The language FT of ordering constraints over feature trees has been introduced as an extension of the system FT of equality constraints over feature trees. While the firstorder theory of FT is well understood, only few decidability results are known for the firstorder theory of FT . We introduc ..."

introduce a new method for proving the decidability of fragments of the firstorder theory of FT . This method is based on reduction to second order monadic logic that is decidable according to Rabin's famous tree theorem. The method applies to any fragment of the firstorder theory of FT for which
