A Fuzzy Description Logic with Product T-norm

In Proceedings of the IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (Fuzz-IEEE-07).

Fuzzy Description Logics} (fuzzy DLs) have been proposed as a language to describe structured knowledge with vague concepts. It is well known that the choice of the fuzzy operators may determine some logical properties. However, up to date the study of fuzzy DLs has been restricted to the Lukasiewicz logic and the ``Zadeh
semantics''. In this work, we propose a novel semantics combining the common product t-norm with the standard negation. We show some interesting properties of the logic and propose a reasoning algorithm based on a mixture of tableaux rules and the reduction to Mixed Integer Quadratically Constrained Programming.
