Adding Transitivity and Counting to the Fluted Fragment

Authors: Ian Pratt-Hartmann and Lidia Tendera

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 252, 31st EACSL Annual Conference on Computer Science Logic (CSL 2023)


Abstract
We study the impact of adding both counting quantifiers and a single transitive relation to the fluted fragment - a fragment of first-order logic originating in the work of W.V.O. Quine. The resulting formalism can be viewed as a multi-variable, non-guarded extension of certain systems of description logic featuring number restrictions and transitive roles, but lacking role-inverses. We establish the finite model property for our logic, and show that the satisfiability problem for its k-variable sub-fragment is in (k+1)-NExpTime. We also derive ExpSpace-hardness of the satisfiability problem for the two-variable, fluted fragment with one transitive relation (but without counting quantifiers), and prove that, when a second transitive relation is allowed, both the satisfiability and the finite satisfiability problems for the two-variable fluted fragment with counting quantifiers become undecidable.

On the Fluted Fragment (Invited Talk)

Authors: Lidia Tendera

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 187, 38th International Symposium on Theoretical Aspects of Computer Science (STACS 2021)


Abstract
The fluted fragment is a recently rediscovered decidable fragment of first-order logic whose history is dating back to Quine and the sixties of the 20th century. The fragment is defined by fixing simultaneously the order in which variables occur in atomic formulas and the order of quantification of variables; no further restrictions concerning e.g. the number of variables, guardedness or usage of negation apply. In the talk we review some motivation and the history of the fragment, discuss the differences between the fluted fragment and other decidable fragments of first-order logic, present its basic model theoretic and algorithmic properties, and discuss recent work concerning limits of decidability of its extensions.

The Fluted Fragment with Transitivity

Authors: Ian Pratt-Hartmann and Lidia Tendera

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 138, 44th International Symposium on Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science (MFCS 2019)


Abstract
We study the satisfiability problem for the fluted fragment extended with transitive relations. We show that the logic enjoys the finite model property when only one transitive relation is available. On the other hand we show that the satisfiability problem is undecidable already for the two-variable fragment of the logic in the presence of three transitive relations.

Quine's Fluted Fragment is Non-Elementary

Authors: Ian Pratt-Hartmann, Wieslaw Szwast, and Lidia Tendera

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 62, 25th EACSL Annual Conference on Computer Science Logic (CSL 2016)


Abstract
We study the fluted fragment, a decidable fragment of first-order logic with an unbounded number of variables, originally identified by W.V. Quine. We show that the satisfiability problem for this fragment has non-elementary complexity, thus refuting an earlier published claim by W.C. Purdy that it is in NExpTime. More precisely, we consider, for all m greater than 1, the intersection of the fluted fragment and the m-variable fragment of first-order logic. We show that this sub-fragment forces (m/2)-tuply exponentially large models, and that its satisfiability problem is (m/2)-NExpTime-hard. We round off by using a corrected version of Purdy's construction to show that the m-variable fluted fragment has the m-tuply exponential model property, and that its satisfiability problem is in m-NExpTime.

Means and Limits of Decision (Invited Talk)

Authors: Lidia Tendera

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 23, Computer Science Logic 2013 (CSL 2013)


Abstract
In this talk we survey recent work in the quest for expressive logics with good algorithmic properties, starting from the two-variable fragment of first-order logic and the guarded fragment. While tracing the boundary between decidable and undecidable fragments we describe their power, limitations, similarities and differences in order to stress out key properties responsible for their good or bad behaviour. We also highlight tools and techniques that have proven most effective for designing optimal algorithms, special attention giving to the more universal ones.

FO^2 with one transitive relation is decidable

Authors: Wieslaw Szwast and Lidia Tendera

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 20, 30th International Symposium on Theoretical Aspects of Computer Science (STACS 2013)


Abstract
We show that the satisfiability problem for the two-variable first-order logic, FO^2, over transitive structures when only one relation is required to be transitive, is decidable. The result is optimal, as FO^2 over structures with two transitive relations, or with one transitive and one equivalence relation, are known to be undecidable, so in fact, our result completes the classification of FO^2-logics over transitive structures with respect to decidability. We show that the satisfiability problem is in 2-NExpTime. Decidability of the finite satisfiability problem remains open.
