English abstract:
Ordered disjunctions have been introduced as a simple, yet
expressive approach for representing preferential knowledge
by means of logic programs. The semantics for the resulting
language is based on the answer-set semantics, but comes in
different variants, depending on the particular interpretation
of preference aggregation associated to the ordered disjunction
connective. While in standard answer-set programming
the question of when a program is to be considered equivalent
to another received increasing attention in recent years, this
problem has not been addressed for programs with ordered
disjunctions so far. In this paper, we discuss the concept of
strong equivalence in this setting. We introduce different versions
of strong equivalence for programs with ordered disjunctions
and provide model-theoretic characterisations, extending
well-known ones for strong equivalence between ordinary
logic programs. Furthermore, we discuss the relationships
between the proposed notions and study their computational
