1 is not so easily expressed in Prolog. If it is coded either as the fact not(soundsGreat(X), digital(X») or as the rule soundsGreat(X) +- not( digital(X», analog(X), with query? _ not(so'UndsGreat(X)), the system responds with failure, as the answer substitutions have been lost by using the negation by failure semantics. In fact, the well 1 We adopt the Prolog convention that variables are capitalized and constant function and predicate symbols are in lower case. e. soundsPoor(X) +- digital(X).

Q(W). - r(Z). pI is unsatisfiable, but unfortunately, the answers are lost! The problem is that there is no way of asserting that U, V and Ware in fact the same variable. Such an assertion would even violate the fact that clauses are universally quantified. 52 4 THE HORNLOG PROOF PROCEDURE The Hornlog method has the "flavor" of a number of previously reported theorem proving methods that either use graphs in some manner or are based on the problem reduction paradigm. However, there are significant differences between how other methods use various graph data structures and those in Hornlog.

Ingarden(X) +- shot( dave, X). shot(dave, X) +- ingarden(X), suspect(X). +- +- ? - -'shot(dave, X). The Hornlog system returns the expected substitutions, X and the indefinite answer X = dale V X = peter. = dave, X = jessica, A Prolog solution to the above example has a very different character that does not reflect the negative content of the information. 2, an answer was returned which was a disjunction of substitutions, an indefinite answer. 2 model-theoretically implies that one of X = dale or X = peter is true, but it is not known specifically which one.
