Evaluating compliance: From LTL to abductive logic programming
MetadataShow full item record
The compliance verification task amounts to establishing if the execution of a system, given in terms of observed happened events, does respect a given property. In the past both the frameworks of Temporal Logics and Logic Programming have been extensively exploited to assess compliance in different domains, such as normative multi-agent systems, business process management and service oriented computing. In this work we review the LTL and SCIFF frameworks in the light of compliance evaluation, and formally investigate the relationship between the two approaches. We define a notion of compliance within each approach, and then we show that an arbitrary LTL formula can be expressed in SCIFF, by providing a translation procedure from LTL to SCIFF which preserves compliance.
