The intelligent grounder of DLV. (English) Zbl 1357.68032

Erdem, Esra (ed.) et al., Correct reasoning. Essays on logic-based AI in honour of Vladimir Lifschitz. Berlin: Springer (ISBN 978-3-642-30742-3/pbk). Lecture Notes in Computer Science 7265, 247-264 (2012).
Summary: In this work, we give an overview of the DLV Intelligent Grounder, one of the most popular answer set programming instantiators, and a very strong point of the DLV system. Based on a variant of semi-naive evaluation, it also includes several advanced optimization techniques and supports a number of application-oriented features which allow for the successful exploitation of DLV in real-world contexts, also at an industrial level.
