By Christian Straßer
This ebook offers adaptive logics as an intuitive and robust framework for modeling defeasible reasoning. It examines numerous contexts within which defeasible reasoning comes in handy and provides a compact advent into adaptive logics.
The writer first familiarizes readers with defeasible reasoning, the adaptive logics framework, combos of adaptive logics, and quite a number beneficial meta-theoretic houses. He then deals a scientific examine of adaptive logics according to numerous purposes.
The publication provides formal versions for defeasible reasoning stemming from diverse contexts, similar to default reasoning, argumentation, and normative reasoning. It highlights quite a few meta-theoretic merits of adaptive logics over different logics or logical frameworks that version defeasible reasoning. during this means the e-book substantiates the prestige of adaptive logics as a time-honored formal framework for defeasible reasoning.
