Reasoning with Prioritized Defaults
The purpose of this paper is to investigate the methodology of reasoning with prioritized defaults in the language of logic programs under the answer set semantics. We present a domain independent system of axioms, written as an extended logic program, which defines reasoning with prioritized defaults. These axioms are used in conjunction with a description of a particular domain encoded in a simple language allowing representation of defaults and their priorities. Such domain descriptions are of course domain dependent and should be specified by the users. We give sufficient conditions for consistency of domain descriptions and illustrate the use of our system by formalizing various examples from the literature. Unlike many other approaches to formalizing reasoning with priorities ours does not require development of the new semantics of the language. Instead, the meaning of statements in the domain description is given by the system of (domain independent) axioms. We believe that i...
