Abstract

© Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 1996.We present a semantic tableaux calculus for propositional nonmonotonic modal logics, based on possible-worlds characterisations for nonmonotonic modal logics. This method is parametric with respect to both the modal logic and the preference semantics, since it handles in a uniform way the entailment problem for a wide class of nonmonotonic modal logics: McDermott and Doyle's logics and ground logics. It also achieves the computational complexity lower bounds.
