Example text

2) There is a (necessarily unique) unimax subtree R2 of T2 with the same size signature as R1. (3) For each subtree $2 of R2 such that IS2] > IS[, the multiplicity of $2 in R1 is greater than or equal to its multiplicity in R2 3 (4) For each subtree $2 of R2 such that ]$2] = ]S[ and $2 ~ S, the multiplicity of $2 in R1 is greater than or equal to its multiplicity in R2. (5) The multiplicity of S in R1 is strictly greater than the multiplicity of S in Tt2. L e m m a 5. If S weakly ~ -distinguishes T1 and T2, then T1 ~- T2.

One may interpret 'it is consistent to assume 13' as '--,13 cannot be deduced' [Besnard [1989]. But, the application of such a rule based on non-deducibility becomes noneffective. In the sequel we motivate and outline an alternative approach to generic reasoning, based on making precise the notion of 'most'. 2 Ultrafilters for Default Reasoning and Generic Statements Returning to the initial question, the nonmonotonic approach via default rules originated by Reiter bases generic reasoning on the idea of 'in the absence of any information to the contrary', and in this sense it favours a negative interpretation.

G. Barwise and Feferman [1985]). The logic obtained by adding V to classical firstorder logic will provide a tool for generic reasoning. In the next section we formalise this logic semantically and present a sound and complete deductive calculus for it. We then show how to use this logic for reasoning about 'generic' individuals. In some cases, the behaviour of the operator V as a generalised-quantifier may introduce some undesired side effects because of some unwanted inheritances. We later show how a sorted version of our approach can be employed to take care of distinct notions of 'large, thereby circumventing these undesirable inheritances.
