English abstract:
This paper considers the setting of ontology-based query answering (OBQA). In this
setting, Description Logics (DLs) and existential rules (a.k.a. tuple-generating dependencies
or Datalogą rules) are popular ontology languages, while conjunctive queries
(CQs) is the main querying tool. Among KR researchers there is a clear consensus that
the required level of scalability in OBQA can only be achieved via query rewriting,
which attempts to reduce OBQA into the problem of evaluating a query over a relational
database. Two query languages are usually considered: first-order queries (FO)
and non-recursive Datalog queries (NDL).
An interesting approach to query rewriting is the polynomial combined approach [7],
which can be described as follows: an ontology Σ can be incorporated together with a
CQ q into a database query qΣ in polynomial time, and also with a database D into
a database DΣ in polynomial time, such that qΣ over DΣ yields the same result as q
evaluated over the knowledge base consisting of D and Σ. The polynomial combined
approach has been applied to ELHdr
⊥ [7], an extension of the well-known DL EL, to
horn [5, 6], one of the most expressive logics of the DL-Lite family, and only
recently to the main guarded- and sticky-based classes of existential rules [3].
