Example text

This includes a method to specify a background theory as part of the logic program. In accordance with the branching time structure used in the semantics for GOLOG, the domain axiomatization is based on the concept of a situation. In this setting, also known as the Situation Calculus, all precondition axioms are of the simplified form Poss(A(x), s ) ≡ π A [s ] with the understanding that an action always ends in the successor situation Do(A(x), s ), so that the above is a mere abbreviation of the standard axiom Poss(A(x), s , t) ≡ π A [s ] ∧ t = Do(A(x), s ) The effects of actions are encoded by so-called successor state axioms, which are a compact form of general effect axioms under the assumption that all actions are deterministic.

Given a preference specification, the association of a weight with every sequence of situations provides a straightforward measure by which plans can be compared according to the extent to which they take into account the preferences. An ideal plan leads to an overall weight of 0 for all preferences, and if we have two plans p 1 and p 2 , then one is preferred over the other just in case it determines a lower overall weight.

Cls 52 July 5, 2008 10:2 ACTION PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES As before, the solution strategy is based on the recognition of specific patterns. 3(a). For the ALP, an instance of a pattern is encoded as a list of cells, the first of which denotes the position of the catalyst peg. The way to solve a pattern can then be defined as patternSolved(P) :- member(Y,P), do(jump(X,Y,Z)), patternSolved(P). (peg(Catalyst)), empty(P). Put in words, the catalyst position is occupied while all other cells of the pattern, given in the tail list P, no longer contain a peg: empty([]).
