Worst-Case Optimal Reasoning with Forest Logic Programs

Last modified: 2012-05-17

#### Abstract

The paper introduces a worst-case optimal tableau algorithm for reasoning with Forest Logic Programs, a decidable fragment of Open Answer Set Programming. FoLPs are a useful device for tight integration of the Description Logic and the Logic Programming worlds: reasoning with the DL SHOQ can be simulated within the fragment. The algorithm reuses a knowledge compilation technique previously introduced, but improves on previous results by decreasing the worst-case running time with one exponential level. The decrease in complexity is due to the usage in conjunction of a new redundancy and of a new caching rule.
