4.4. Further reading#

An introduction to Knowledge Representation can be found in (Ringland & Duce, 1989). (Brachman & Levesque, 1985) is a collection of papers discussing various aspects of Knowledge Representation, such as the difference between isa-links and instance-of-links in semantic networks. Papers about inheritance hierarchies can be found in (Lenzerini et al., 1991). LOGIN is an extension of Prolog in which inheritance is represented by terms rather than clauses (Aït-Kaci & Nasr, 1986).
