Reasoning about procedural programs in a chess ending
Number of Authors: 2
1988 (English)Report (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

We demonstrate how to reason about plans by treating them as programs expressed in a simple imperative language, and illustrate this using an example originally suggested by McCarthy and later discussed at length by McDermott. A detailed correctness proof is provided, which it is argued is greatly superior to McDermott's.
