Abduction and Diagnostic Inference
Abduction is a type of logic or reasoning which derives plausible explanations for the data at hand. In this book, formal and computational models of the abductive reasoning process that underlies diagnostic problem- solving are considered. The core material presented is that of “parsimonious covering theory” and various extensions to it. Among other things, this theory provides a theoretical foundation for the recent and continuing efforts to automate abductive reasoning in diagnostic problem-solving.
