On Deciding Admissibility in Abstract Argumentation Frameworks

Samer Nofal, Katie Atkinson, Paul Dunne


In the context of abstract argumentation frameworks, the admissibility problem is about deciding whether a given argument (i.e. piece of knowledge) is admissible in a conflicting knowledge base. In this paper we present an enhanced backtracking-based algorithm for solving the admissibility problem. The algorithm performs successfully when applied to a wide range of benchmark abstract argumentation frameworks and when compared to the state-of-the-art algorithm.
