Side Effect Analysis for Logic-Based Planning

Mowbray, Miranda; Eshghi, Kave



Abstract: In this paper we describe the algorithms for planning and, in particular, for side effect analysis used in a software tool for system management, called Dolphin, which is based on declarative programming. In Dolphin the user is given the option of declaring some side effects to be acceptable or unacceptable. This treatment of side effects makes our system different from those described in the logic-based planning literature.
