Embedding Revision Programs in Logic Programming Situation Calculus

Chitta Baral


Revision programs were introduced by Marek and Truszczynski to specify change in knowledge bases. In this paper we show how to embed revision programs in logic programs with situation calculus notation. We extend Marek and Truszczynski's approach to allow incomplete initial knowledge base and extend the rules of revision programs to depend both on the initial and the final knowledge base. We show how revision programs and its proposed extension can be incorporated in theories of actions and how our usage of situation calculus notation makes this easier and elegant.
