Abstract: A model-intersection problem (MI problem) is a pair of a set of clauses and an exit mapping. We define MI
problems on specialization systems, which include many useful classes of logical problems, such as proof
problems on first-order logic and query-answering (QA) problems in pure Prolog and deductive databases.
The theory presented in this paper makes clear the central and fundamental structure of representation and
computation for many classes of logical problems by (i) axiomatization and (ii) equivalent transformation.
Clauses in this theory are constructed based on abstract atoms and abstract operation on them, which can be
used for representation of many specific subclasses of problems with concrete syntax. Various computation
can be realized by repeated application of many equivalent transformation rules, allowing many possible
computation procedures, for instance, computation procedures based on resolution and unfolding. This theory
can also be useful for inventing solutions for new classes of logical problems.(More)
