Description Logics for the Representation of Aggregated Objects

Ulrike Sattler

Aggregated objects play an important role in many knowledge representation applications. For the adequate representation of aggregated objects, it is crucial to represent part-whole relations. We discuss properties of part-whole relations and extend the description logic ALC with means for the adequate representation of part-whole relations and thus of aggregated objects.
