Adaptive Logics for Defeasible Reasoning: Applications in by Christian Straßer

By Christian Straßer

This e-book offers adaptive logics as an intuitive and strong framework for modeling defeasible reasoning. It examines numerous contexts within which defeasible reasoning turns out to be useful and gives a compact advent into adaptive logics.

The writer first familiarizes readers with defeasible reasoning, the adaptive logics framework, mixtures of adaptive logics, and various beneficial meta-theoretic homes. He then deals a scientific learn of adaptive logics in response to a number of functions.

The publication offers formal types for defeasible reasoning stemming from assorted contexts, resembling default reasoning, argumentation, and normative reasoning. It highlights numerous meta-theoretic benefits of adaptive logics over different logics or logical frameworks that version defeasible reasoning. during this manner the booklet substantiates the prestige of adaptive logics as a conventional formal framework for defeasible reasoning.
