Abstract [en]

The current article is devoted to extensions of the rule query language 4QL proposed by Małuszyński and Szałas. 4QL is a Datalog¬¬-like language, allowing one to use rules with negation in heads and bodies of rules. It is based on a simple and intuitive semantics and provides uniform tools for lightweight versions of well-known forms of non-monotonic reasoning. In addition, 4QL is tractable w.r.t. data complexity and captures PTime queries. In the current article we relax most of restrictions of 4QL, obtaining a powerful but still tractable query language 4QL+. In its development we mainly focused on its pragmatic aspects: simplicity, tractability and generality. In the article we discuss our approach and choices made, define a new, more general semantics and investigate properties of 4QL+.
