An Approach for Partial Semantics of Argumentation

Abstract

In various argumentation systems, under most situations, only the status of some arguments of the systems should be evaluated, while that of others does not necessarily need to be figured out. Based on this observation, we first introduce an efficient method to evaluate the status of a part of arguments in an abstract argumentation framework. Given an argumentation framework and a subset of arguments within it, the minimal set of arguments that are relevant to this subset (called the set of relevant arguments of the subset) is identified. The set of extensions of the sub-framework induced by the set of relevant arguments of the given subset (called a partial semantics of ...
