S-stable models

Abstract Dialectical Frameworks (ADF) allow to represent and reason on argumentations. There are several semantics for ADF. One of them was proposed by Strass (AIJ paper), and can be computed using ASP solvers as described in the following paper:

The script can be run as follows:

$ s-stable-models.py  | clasp 0

where filename is the file containing the ADF specification. For example:

$ s-stable-models.py example3.adf | clasp 0
clasp version 1.3.6

Models      : 2     
Time        : 0.000s (Solving: 0.00s 1st Model: 0.00s Unsat: 0.00s)

where example3.adf encodes the Nixon’s diamond problem:

s(X) :- ac(X,_).

ac(a, neg(p)).
ac(p, neg(a)).
