The Research on Mapping from DAML+OIL Ontology to Basic-Element and Complex-Element of Extenics

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7389)


DAML+OIL is an important ontology language. Basic-element and complex-element are the formalization basis of Extenics and used to solve the contradiction problems. We firstly introduced the DAML+OIL and the basic-element and complex-element. Secondly, we analyzed the element of DAML+OIL and the basic-element and complex-element, then gave the corresponding relation of them. Finally, we gave the mapping rules from DAML+OIL to the basic-element and complex-element. We studied how to transform DAML+OIL ontology to the basic-element and complex-element in syntax, and gave a way to solve the contradiction problem of the knowledge domain.
