and automated reasoning formalisms to carry out logical
reasoning. The project will develop, study and implement
practical resolution-based approaches for reasoning about
expressive web ontology languages and expressive agent logics.
The research at Manchester will focus on reasoning for the
semantic web, ontologies, and description logics, while the
