Item description for The Resolution Calculus (Texts in Theoretical Computer Science) by Alexander Leitsch...

This is a completely new presentation of resolution as a logical calculus and as a basis for computational algorithms and decision procedures. The first part deals with the traditional topics (Herbrand's theorem, completeness of resolution, refinements and deletion) but with many new features and concepts like normalization of clauses, resolution operators and search complexity. The second part gives a systematic treatment of recent research topics. It is shown how resolution decision procedures can be applied to solve the decision problem for some important first-order classes. The complexity of resolution is analyzed in terms of Herbrand complexity, new concepts are used to classify the complexity of refinements, and functional extension is introduced with resolution to give a strong calculus.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Resolution Calculus (Texts in Theoretical Computer Science)?

mathematical introduction to resolution theorem proving  Oct 12, 2000
This is an excellent book on resolution-based automated theorem proving. It is written at the level for a graduate level mathematics course. It is very precise and covers all the major aspects of the resolution calculus (refinements, deletion strategies, subsumption and unification algorithms). It proves the correctness of these strategies and then gives the algorithms. The last two chapters cover the complexity of resolution. This is unusual for a theorem proving book, but very interesting. Does not cover paramodulation, though.
