Class DirectionalAspicReasoner<T extends Invertable>

Type Parameters:
T - the type of formulas
All Implemented Interfaces:
QualitativeReasoner<AspicArgumentationTheory<T>,T>, Reasoner<Boolean,AspicArgumentationTheory<T>,T>

public class DirectionalAspicReasoner<T extends Invertable> extends AbstractAspicReasoner<T>
Computes a restricted AF by only considering relevant arguments to a query. An optional probability value for including only a certain subset of relevant arguments turns this reasoner into an approximative reasoner

  • Constructor Details

    • DirectionalAspicReasoner

      public DirectionalAspicReasoner(AbstractExtensionReasoner aafReasoner)
      Creates a new instance
      aafReasoner - Underlying reasoner for AAFs.
    • DirectionalAspicReasoner

      public DirectionalAspicReasoner(AbstractExtensionReasoner aafReasoner, double prob)
      Creates a new instance
      aafReasoner - Underlying reasoner for AAFs.
      prob - the probability of including a certain relevant argument

    • getDungTheory

      public DungTheory getDungTheory(AspicArgumentationTheory<T> aat, T query)
      Description copied from class: AbstractAspicReasoner
      Computes the Dung theory from which the answer will be derived
      Specified by:
      getDungTheory in class AbstractAspicReasoner<T extends Invertable>
      aat - some Aspic theory
      query - some query
      a Dung theory
    • asRestrictedDungTheory

      public DungTheory asRestrictedDungTheory(AspicArgumentationTheory<T> aat, boolean simplifyArgumentStructure, T conc)
      Generate restricted AF based on given theory and conclusion. The restricted AF contains only arguments with the given concusion, all the attackers of this argument, the attackers of those arguments, and so on. As long as the semantics that is employed satisfies directionality, this restricted AF is sufficient to determine the correct status of the conclusion.
      aat - The aspic theory to generate arguments from
      simplifyArgumentStructure - a boolean, see org.tweetyproject.arg.aspic.AbstractAspicReasoner#getDungTheory(org.tweetyproject.arg.aspic.AspicArgumentationTheory, org.tweetyproject.commons.Formula)
      conc - Conclusion to generate restricted AF for
      The restricted AF
    • getAttackingConclusions

      public Collection<T> getAttackingConclusions(AspicArgument<T> arg, RuleFormulaGenerator<T> rfgen)
      Returns all "attacking conclusions" of the given argument. An attacking conclusion of an argument is a conclusion that, if it is a conclusion of another argument, then this argument will attack it.
      arg - Argument to generate attacking conclusions
      rfgen - Rule formula generator in use.
      Attacking conclusions of argument.

    • isInstalled

      public boolean isInstalled()
      if the solver is installed
