Abstract, BiBTeX, PDF

The guarded fragment and its extensions and subfragments have often been considered as a framework for investigating the properties of description logics. But there are other decidable fragments which al l have in common that they generalise the standard translation of ALC to first-order logic. We provide a short survey of some of these fragments and motivate why they are interesting with respect to description logics. [an error occurred while processing this directive]
