Communicating Answer Set Programs

Authors: Kim Bauters, Jeroen Janssen, Steven Schockaert, Dirk Vermeir, and Martine De Cock

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 7, Technical Communications of the 26th International Conference on Logic Programming (2010)


Abstract
Answer set programming is a form of declarative programming that has proven very successful in succinctly formulating and solving complex problems. Although mechanisms for representing and reasoning with the combined answer set programs of multiple agents have already been proposed, the actual gain in expressivity when adding communication has not been thoroughly studied. We show that allowing simple programs to talk to each other results in the same expressivity as adding negation-as-failure. Furthermore, we show that the ability to focus on one program in a network of simple programs results in the same expressivity as adding disjunction in the head of the rules.

Efficient Solving of Time-dependent Answer Set Programs

Authors: Timur Fayruzov, Jeroen Janssen, Dirk Vermeir, Chris Cornelis, and Martine De Cock

Abstract
Answer set programs with time predicates are useful to model systems whose properties depend on time, like for example gene regulatory networks. A state of such a system at time point t then corresponds to the literals of an answer set that are grounded with time constant t. An important task when modelling time-dependent systems is to find steady states from which the system's behaviour does not change anymore. This task is complicated by the fact that it is typically not known in advance at what time steps these steady states occur. A brute force approach of estimating a time upper bound tmax and grounding and solving the program w.r.t. that upper bound leads to a suboptimal solving time when the estimate is too low or too high. In this paper we propose a more efficient algorithm for solving Markovian programs, which are time-dependent programs for which the next state depends only on the previous state. Instead of solving these Markovian programs for a long time interval {0,...,tmax}, we successively find answer sets of parts of the grounded program. Our approach guarantees the discovery of all steady states and cycles while avoiding unnecessary extra work.
