Granular Spatial Calculi of Relative Directions or Movements with Parallelism: Consistent Account (Short Paper)

Authors: Reinhard Moratz, Leif Sabellek, and Thomas Schneider

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 142, 14th International Conference on Spatial Information Theory (COSIT 2019)


Abstract
The OPRA* calculus family, originally suggested by Frank Dylla, adds parallelism to the OPRA calculus family which is very popular in Qualitative Spatio-temporal Reasoning (QSTR). Adding parallelism enables the direct representation of parallel moving objects, which is relevant in many applications like traffic monitoring. However, it turned out that it is hard to derive a sound geometric analysis. So far no sound spatial reasoning was supported. Our new generic analysis based on combining condensed semantics lower bounds with upper bounds from algebraic mappings of related calculi already leads to a close and sound approximization. This approximization can be easily augmented with a manual analysis of few geometrically underconstrained cases and then yields a complete analysis of possible configurations in this oriented point framework. This for the first time enables sound standard QSTR constraint reasoning for the OPRA* calculus family.

Querying the Unary Negation Fragment with Regular Path Expressions

Authors: Jean Christoph Jung, Carsten Lutz, Mauricio Martel, and Thomas Schneider

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 98, 21st International Conference on Database Theory (ICDT 2018)


Abstract
The unary negation fragment of first-order logic (UNFO) has recently been proposed as a generalization of modal logic that shares many of its good computational and model-theoretic properties. It is attractive from the perspective of database theory because it can express conjunctive queries (CQs) and ontologies formulated in many description logics (DLs). Both are relevant for ontology-mediated querying and, in fact, CQ evaluation under UNFO ontologies (and thus also under DL ontologies) can be `expressed' in UNFO as a satisfiability problem. In this paper, we consider the natural extension of UNFO with regular expressions on binary relations. The resulting logic UNFOreg can express (unions of) conjunctive two-way regular path queries (C2RPQs) and ontologies formulated in DLs that include transitive roles and regular expressions on roles. Our main results are that evaluating C2RPQs under UNFOreg ontologies is decidable, 2ExpTime-complete in combined complexity, and coNP-complete in data complexity, and that satisfiability in UNFOreg is 2ExpTime-complete, thus not harder than in UNFO.

Conservative Extensions in Guarded and Two-Variable Fragments

Authors: Jean Christoph Jung, Carsten Lutz, Mauricio Martel, Thomas Schneider, and Frank Wolter

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 80, 44th International Colloquium on Automata, Languages, and Programming (ICALP 2017)


Abstract
We investigate the decidability and computational complexity of (deductive) conservative extensions in fragments of first-order logic (FO), with a focus on the two-variable fragment FO2 and the guarded fragment GF. We prove that conservative extensions are undecidable in any FO fragment that contains FO2 or GF (even the three-variable fragment thereof), and that they are decidable and 2ExpTime-complete in the intersection GF2 of FO2 and GF.
