It is vital, that you have some prior knowledge about First Order Logic, Description Logics, and Logic Programs (especially ASP). If you passed Computational Logic before, you should be just fine. If you need to refresh your knowledge here, you can either look at the slides from Computational Logic, or in the recommended literature as listed below.


Following references cover the course content extensively and in further details. You're not expected to study all references listed here start-to-end, instead see references in lecture slides where to get more information on a given subject.

S druhou rozcvičkou boli trochu problémy, hlavne v korektnom zápise sledu argumentov. Jeden z môžných dôkazov nájdete v Súbor:R02riesenie.pdf
