Abstract

The thesis deals with a family of federated description logics

for creating modular ontologies in the semantic web. All these

logics share modularity, the possibility to reuse concept names

and role names by importing, and context-sensitive interpretation

of all logical connectives. Apart from the main basic language

F-ALCI, we present a lattice-based extension LF-ALCI, a

probabilistic extension PF-ALCI and an extension that employs

knowledge operators F-ALCIK. All languages are based on the

ordinary well-known description logic ALCI.
