FORMULATING ASPECTS OF PAYPAL IN THE LOGIC FRAMEWORK OF GBMF

Min Li, Chris J. Hogger

Abstract

Logic-based modelling methods can benefit business organizations in constructing models offering flexible knowledge representation supported by correct and effective inference. It remains a continuing research issue as to how best to apply logic-based formalization to informal/semi-formal business modelling. In this paper, we formulate aspects of the general business specification of PayPal in logic programming by applying this in logic-based GBMF which is a declarative, context-independent, implementable and highly expressive framework for modelling high-level aspects of business. In particular, we introduce the primary PayPal business concepts and relations; specify simple but essential PayPal business processes associated with a knowledge base, and set core business rules and controls to simulate the PayPal case in a fully automatic manner. This specific modelling method gives the advantages of general-purpose expressiveness and well-understood execution regimes, avoiding the need for a special-purpose engine supporting a specialized modelling language.
