Nominal schema absorption
FacultiesFakultät für Ingenieurwissenschaften und Informatik
Nominal schemas have recently been introduced as a new approach for the integration of DL-safe rules into the Description Logic framework. The efficient processing of knowledge bases with nominal schemas remains, however, challenging. We address this by extending the well-known optimisation of absorption as well as the standard tableau calculus to directly handle the (absorbed) nominal schema axioms. We implement the resulting extension of standard tableau calculi in the novel reasoning system Konclude and present further optimisations. In our empirical evaluation, we show the effect of these optimisations and we find that the proposed nominal schema handling performs well even when compared to (hyper)tableau systems with dedicated rule support.
