Nominal Schemas for Integrating Rules and Description Logics
Nominal Schemas for Integrating Rules and Ontologies
Abstract. We propose an extension of SROIQ with nominal schemas which can be used like "variable nominal concepts" within axioms. This feature allows us to express arbitrary DL-safe rules in description logic syntax. We show that adding nominal schemas to SROIQ does not increase its worst-case reasoning complexity, and we identify a family of tractable DLs SROELVn that allow for restricted use of nominal schemas.
