    \subsection{Deductive Databases} In the field of deductive databases there has been extensive research on the optimization of queries for Datalog (and its variants). The major interest has been the optimization of recursive queries. Ceri et al~\cite{ceri-gottlob-tanca-1989} provide an excellent summary of the field. The evaluation or comparison of optimization strategies is typified by Bancilhon and Ramakrishnan~\cite{br1986,br1988} who develop analytical cost models for the optimization strategies

    database:- Deductive database systems are database management systems which are basically designed around a logical model of data. In this type of database systems deductions are made based on the rules and facts stored in the database. We use a language called Datalog which are typically used to specify facts,rules and queries in database. Deductive Database is an advanced form of relational database. When we compare deductive database with relational database we can find that deductive database is

    Is human reasoning rational? Draw on theories of deductive reasoning and your own experience with Sudoku puzzles. Reasoning can be defined as the problems that differ from other kinds of problems in that they often owe their origins to formal systems of logic (Eysenck and Keane (2005). Deductive reasoning is a type of reasoning that leads to conclusions that are definitely true given that statements the conclusion is based on are true. Rationality is the quality or state of being reasonable, based

    straightaway. DEDUCTIVE ARGUMENT Philosophers distinguish between two types of argument – deductive and inductive. Successful deductive arguments are valid – if the premises are true, then the conclusion must be true. In this case, we say that the conclusion is entailed by the premises. Here is a famous example: Premise 1: Socrates is a man. Premise 2: All men are mortal. Conclusion: Socrates is mortal. A valid deductive argument with true premises is called sound. But a valid deductive argument doesn’t

    The Deductive Problem of Evil      One of the major philosophical debates concerning God's existence involves the problem of evil.  The problem has two basic formulations, one is deductive, the other inductive.  The deductive form of the problem asks the following:  Is the existence of evil logically compatible with a necessarily benevolent and necessarily omnipotent being?  One of the philosophers who discusses the problem is Richard Gale.  I will begin this essay by outlining the deductive

    use a process of reasoning to explain how they have come to that conclusion” (Open University (“OU”) 2017 a). There are three forms of logical reasoning judges use; these are deductive, inductive and analogous. Deductive reasoning begins with a general principle and basing a conclusion on it. The most famous type of deductive reasoning is syllogism. Firstly, the reasoning begins with a statement that is true the major premise. Secondly there is a minor premise which is also known to be correct and

    by, more strategies come out for appropriate ways to teach grammar to students. Inductive and Deductive are the most common strategies used to teach grammar. While both methods are essential, differentiating instruction from general education students is key too (Varela, 2010, 40). Differentiation should be used to help ELLs succeed, and excel. Scaffolding differentiation and the inductive and deductive approaches allows ELLs to achieve more. All students who enters the classroom has their own thumbprint

  • Probabilist - Deductive Inference in Gassendi's Logic

    ‘Probabilist’ Deductive Inference in Gassendi's Logic* ABSTRACT: In his Logic, Pierre Gassendi proposes that our inductive inferences lack the information we would need to be certain of the claims that they suggest. Not even deductivist inference can insure certainty about empirical claims because the experientially attained premises with which we adduce support for such claims are no greater than probable. While something is surely amiss in calling deductivist inference "probabilistic," it

  • Hypothetico-Deductive Modeling to Q&A

    Hypothetico-Deductive Modeling to Q&A The Hypothetico-Deductive model is considered by some to be the hallmark of scientific research methods. The model is predicated on obtaining information in an effort to confirm or reject the hypothesis developed. This methodology requires the researcher to ask questions, hone in on the issue through preliminary research, formulate hypothesis and measurements, test, draw conclusions, refine and report. In order for the model to be effective the question being

  • Sound Deductive Argument Essay

    I. Conceptual Clarification A sound deductive argument, within the context of finding a definite answer, requires that, “it is both valid, and all of its premises are actually true.” (“Validity and Soundness”) In other words, a deductive argument is sound if the ‘things’ that it is standing on are real, and it relates these things in a way that logically leads to the argument’s conclusion. For example, a sound deductive argument could follow that, “If I fill up my car with gas, I will not wind
