Course Description

We will approach automated deduction systems that follow different paradigms from the view of the application user. The tutorials require experimenting with the introduced systems and presenting solutions.

Discussed topics and systems will be

  1. Programming in logic, formula manipulation, interfacing with XML and RDF (SWI-Prolog)
  2. First-order theorem proving (Hyper [formerly called E-KRHyper], Prover9, E)
  3. Model computation, answer set programming (Hyper, Clingo [clasp/Gringo])
  4. Ontology reasoning (Protege/Hermit)
  5. Reasoning with forms of second-order quantifier elimination: Forgetting, uniform interpolation, projection computation, abduction
