The volume opens with an extended version of a tutorial on nonmonotonic logic by G. Brewka, J. Dix, and K. Konolige. Fifteen selected papers follow, on a variety of topics. The majority of papers belong either to the area of nonmonotonic reasoning or to the field of inductive inference, but some papers integrate research from both areas. This proceedings volume contains revised and reviewed papers based on talks presented at the first International Workshop on Nonmonotonic and Inductive Logic held in Karlsruhe, December The workshop was supported by the Volkswagen-Stiftung, Hannover, and provided a forum for researchers. A non-monotonic logic is a formal logic whose consequence relation is not other words, non-monotonic logics are devised to capture and represent defeasible inferences (cf. defeasible reasoning), i.e., a kind of inference in which reasoners draw tentative conclusions, enabling reasoners to retract their conclusion(s) based on further evidence.

[J Dix; K P Jantke; P H Schmitt;] -- "This proceedings volume contains revised and reviewed papers based on talks presented at the first International Workshop on Nonmonotonic and Inductive Logic held in Karlsruhe, December Nonmonotonic reasoning and logic programs.- Supracompact inference operations.- Notions of nonmonotonic derivability.- Ranges of strong modal nonmonotonic logics.- On generation of cumulative inference operators by default deduction rules.- Qualitative magnitude reasoning.- Monotonic and non-monotonic inductive inference of functions and patterns Nonmonotonic reasoning provides formal methods that enable intelligent systems to operate adequately when faced with incomplete or changing information. In particular, it provides rigorous mechanisms for taking back conclusions that, in the presence of new information, turn out to be wrong and for deriving new, alternative conclusions instead.

Ronald Ortner, Hannes Leitgeb, As we have seen in Subsection , deductive closure in nonmonotonic logic as understood above is actually monotonic, and by the results in the last subsection the same is true of the relations of logical entailment introduced above, i.e.: if K B.

Ronald Ortner, Hannes Leitgeb, do have nice implementations in terms of PROLOG or logic programs, nonmonotonic reasoning in the preferential KLM style is implemented in very much the same manner as standard systems of modal. "The book is recommended reading for philosophers and logicians concerned with conditional logics and inductive inference and will interest researchers in artificial intelligence involved in nonmonotonic reasoning and belief revision." A. Florea, Computing ReviewsCited by: Mar 14,  · This book by Wiktor Marek and Miroslaw Truszczynski is an elegant treatment of a large body of these results. It provides the first comprehensive treatment of two influen tial nonmonotonic logics - autoepistemic and default logic - and describes a number . Nonmonotonic logic: Context-dependent reasoning They are commonly referred to as nonmonotonic logics. Our goal in this book is to present a thorough study of some of the most important.
