Consider the following axioms:

  1. All hounds howl at night.
  2. Anyone who has any cats will not have any mice.
  3. Light sleepers do not have anything which howls at night.
  4. John has either a cat or a hound.
  5. (Conclusion) If John is a light sleeper, then John does nothave any mice.

The conclusion can be proved using Resolution as shown below. The firststep is to write each axiom as a well-formed formula in first-orderpredicate calculus. The clauses written for the above axioms are shownbelow, using LS(x) for `light sleeper'.

  1. ∀ x (HOUND(x) → HOWL(x))
  2. ∀ x ∀ y (HAVE (x,y) ∧ CAT (y) → ¬ ∃ z (HAVE(x,z) ∧ MOUSE (z)))
  3. ∀ x (LS(x) → ¬ ∃ y (HAVE (x,y) ∧ HOWL(y)))
  4. ∃ x (HAVE (John,x) ∧ (CAT(x) ∨ HOUND(x)))
  5. LS(John) → ¬ ∃ z (HAVE(John,z) ∧ MOUSE(z))

The next step is to transform each wff into Prenex Normal Form, skolemize,and rewrite as clauses in conjunctive normal form; these transformationsare shown below.

  1. ∀ x (HOUND(x) → HOWL(x))

    ¬ HOUND(x) ∨ HOWL(x)

  2. ∀ x ∀ y (HAVE (x,y) ∧ CAT (y) →¬ ∃ z (HAVE(x,z) ∧ MOUSE (z)))

    ∀ x ∀ y (HAVE (x,y) ∧ CAT (y) →∀ z ¬ (HAVE(x,z) ∧ MOUSE (z)))

    ∀ x ∀ y ∀ z (¬ (HAVE (x,y) ∧ CAT (y))∨ ¬ (HAVE(x,z) ∧ MOUSE (z)))

    ¬ HAVE(x,y) ∨ ¬ CAT(y) ∨ ¬ HAVE(x,z) ∨ ¬ MOUSE(z)

  3. ∀ x (LS(x) →¬ ∃ y (HAVE (x,y) ∧ HOWL(y)))

    ∀ x (LS(x) → ∀ y ¬ (HAVE (x,y) ∧ HOWL(y)))

    ∀ x ∀ y (LS(x) → ¬ HAVE(x,y) ∨ ¬ HOWL(y))

    ∀ x ∀ y (¬ LS(x) ∨ ¬ HAVE(x,y) ∨ ¬ HOWL(y))

    ¬ LS(x) ∨ ¬ HAVE(x,y) ∨ ¬ HOWL(y)

  4. ∃ x (HAVE (John,x) ∧ (CAT(x) ∨ HOUND(x)))

    HAVE(John,a) ∧ (CAT(a) ∨ HOUND(a))

  5. ¬ [LS(John) → ¬ ∃ z (HAVE(John,z)∧ MOUSE(z))] (negated conclusion)

    ¬ [¬ LS (John) ∨ ¬ ∃ z (HAVE (John, z) ∧ MOUSE(z))]

    LS(John) ∧ ∃ z (HAVE(John, z) ∧ MOUSE(z)))

    LS(John) ∧ HAVE(John,b) ∧ MOUSE(b)

The set of CNF clauses for this problem is thus as follows:

(Video) Resolution example | FOL | Artificial intelligence | Lec-37 | Bhanu Priya

  1. ¬ HOUND(x) ∨ HOWL(x)
  2. ¬ HAVE(x,y) ∨ ¬ CAT(y) ∨ ¬ HAVE(x,z) ∨ ¬ MOUSE(z)
  3. ¬ LS(x) ∨ ¬ HAVE(x,y) ∨ ¬ HOWL(y)
    1. HAVE(John,a)
    2. CAT(a) ∨ HOUND(a)
    1. LS(John)
    2. HAVE(John,b)
    3. MOUSE(b)

Now we proceed to prove the conclusion by resolution using the above clauses.Each result clause is numbered; the numbers of its parent clauses are shownto its left.

[1.,4.(b):] 6. CAT(a) ∨ HOWL(a)


7. ¬ HAVE(x,y) ∨ ¬ CAT(y) ∨ ¬ HAVE(x,b)


8. ¬ HAVE(John,y) ∨ ¬ CAT(y)


9. ¬ HAVE(John,a) ∨ HOWL(a)


10. HOWL(a)


11. ¬ LS(x) ∨ ¬ HAVE(x,a)


12. ¬ LS(John)




1. Unify (if possible) the following pairs of predicates and give theresulting substitutions. b is a constant.

a. P(x, f(x), z)

  5. John owns a dog.
  6. Someone who hates something owned by another person will not datethat person.
  7. (Conclusion) If Mary does not own a grocery store, she will not dateJohn.

Represent these clauses in predicate calculus, using only those predicateswhich are necessary. For example, you need not represent `person', andphrases such as `who buys carrots by the bushel' may be represented bya single predicate. Negate the conclusion and convert to clause form,skolemizing as necessary. Prove the unsatisfiability of the resultingset of clauses by resolution.

Every animal either likes to eat all plants or all animals muchsmaller than itself that like to eat some plants. Caterpillars and snailsare much smaller than birds, which are much smaller than foxes, whichin turn are much smaller than wolves. Wolves do not like to eat foxesor grains, while birds like to eat caterpillars but not snails. Caterpillarsand snails like to eat some plants. Therefore there is an animal thatlikes to eat a grain-eating animal.

What is resolution technique explain with example? ›

Resolution is a theorem proving technique that proceeds by building refutation proofs, i.e., proofs by contradictions. It was invented by a Mathematician John Alan Robinson in the year 1965. Resolution is used, if there are various statements are given, and we need to prove a conclusion of those statements.
