The class of Horn clause sets in propositional logic is extended to a larger class for which the satisfiability problem can still be solved by unit resolution in linear time. It is shown that to. A Horn clause is a clause with at most one positive literal, called the head of the clause, and any number of negative literals, forming the body of the clause. A Horn formula is a propositional formula formed by conjunction of Horn clauses. The problem of Horn satisfiability is solvable in linear time. Horn clauses. In this subsection we introduce a special class of formulae which are of particular interest for logic programming. Furthermore it turns out that these formulae admit an efficient test for satisfiability. Definition 9. A formula is a Horn formula if it is in CNF and every disjunction contains at most one positive literal. • Another useful class: Horn-SAT – A clause is a Horn clause if at most one literal is positive – If all clauses are Horn, then problem is Horn-SAT – E.g. Application: Checking that one finite-state system refines (implements) another 12 Phase Transitions in k-SAT • Consider a fixed-length clause model – k-SAT means that each clause containsFile Size: KB.

We propose an algorithm that prunes the search space for satisfiability in horn clauses and prove that the optimal solution is guaranteed to exist in the pruned space. The approach finds a model, if it exists, in polynomial time; otherwise it finds an interpretation that is most likely given the by: 1.   Horn formulae are widely used in different settings that include logic programming, answer set programming, description logics, deductive databases, and . 4 CS Knowledge Representation M.

0Reviews. This account of propositional logic concentrates on the algorithmic translation of important methods, especially of decision procedures for (subclasses of) propositional logic. Important classical results and a series of new results taken from the fields of normal forms, satisfiability and deduction methods are arranged in a uniform and complete theoretic framework. hand, the satisfiability of Horn clauses is decidable in polynomial time [6]. For modal logics, it has been proved [8] that the satisfiability problems of the modal logics K, T, and S4 are log-space complete in PSPACE, while the satisfiability. Finite satisfiability. A problem related to satisfiability is that of finite satisfiability, which is the question of determining whether a formula admits a finite model that makes it true. For a logic that has the finite model property, the problems of satisfiability and finite satisfiability coincide, as a formula of that logic has a model if and only if it has a finite g: Horn logic.
