Example text

Given a term t in U , the function F(S) maps t to the term S(t). Given terms t1 and t2, the function F(+) maps the pair (t1, t2) to the term +(t1, t2), and the function F(×) is defined analogously. , the set of atoms that do not contain variables) is sometimes called the Herbrand base of LN . There is a natural one-one correspondence 24 Theoretical Background between interpretations of LN that extend the Herbrand preinterpretation and subsets of the Herbrand base of LN . One Herbrand interpretation of particular interest is the one that mimics the usual interpretation.

One Herbrand interpretation of particular interest is the one that mimics the usual interpretation. In particular, this interpretation maps ≤ to the set I I {(t1, t2) | (t1 N , t2 N ) ∈ ≤IN }. We now turn to the notion of satisfaction of a formula by an interpretation. The definition is recursive on the structure of formulas; as a result we need the notion of variable assignment to accommodate variables occurring free in formulas. Let L be a language and I an interpretation of L with universe U .

3 Basics from Logic The field of mathematical logic is a main foundation for database theory. It serves as the basis for languages for queries, deductive databases, and constraints. We briefly review the basic notions and notations of mathematical logic and then mention some key differences between this logic in general and the specializations usually considered in database theory. The reader is referred to [EFT84, End72] for comprehensive introductions to mathematical logic, and to the chapter [Apt91] in [Lee91] and [Llo87] for treatments of Herbrand models and logic programming.
