Probabilistic logic programming with conditional constraints
Thomas Lukasiewicz
Pages: 289-339
DOI: 10.1145/377978.377983
We introduce a new approach to probabilistic logic programming in which probabilities are defined over a set of possible worlds. More precisely, classical program clauses are extended by a subinterval of [0,1] that describes a range for the...

Proof-complexity results for nonmonotonic reasoning
Uwe Egly, Hans Tompits
Pages: 340-387
DOI: 10.1145/377978.377987
It is well-known that almost all nonmonotonic formalisms have a higher worst-case complexity than classical reasoning. In some sense, this observation denies one of the original motivations of nonmonotonic systems, which was the expectation taht...

Parametric temporal logic for “model measuring”
Rajeev Alur, Kousha Etessami, Salvatore La Torre, Doron Peled
Pages: 388-407
DOI: 10.1145/377978.377990
We extend the standard model checking paradigm of linear temporal logic, LTL, to a “model measuring” paradigm where one can obtain more quantitative information beyond a “Yes/No” answer. For this purpose, we define a...

Weak alternating automata are not that weak
Orna Kupferman, Moshe Y. Vardi
Pages: 408-429
DOI: 10.1145/377978.377993
Automata on infinite words are used for specification and verification of nonterminating programs. Different types of automata induce different levels of expressive power, of succinctness, and of complexity. Alternating automata...
