This publication provides adaptive logics as an intuitive and robust framework for modeling defeasible reasoning. It examines a variety of contexts within which defeasible reasoning turns out to be useful and provides a compact advent into adaptive logics.

The writer first familiarizes readers with defeasible reasoning, the adaptive logics framework, mixtures of adaptive logics, and quite a number invaluable meta-theoretic homes. He then bargains a scientific examine of adaptive logics according to numerous functions.

The ebook offers formal versions for defeasible reasoning stemming from various contexts, resembling default reasoning, argumentation, and normative reasoning. It highlights a number of meta-theoretic benefits of adaptive logics over different logics or logical frameworks that version defeasible reasoning. during this means the booklet substantiates the prestige of adaptive logics as a everyday formal framework for defeasible reasoning.
