Enumerating Minimally Revised Specifications using Dualization

We consider the problem of enumerating minimally revised software specifications in the situation where a new specification is added to the current specification and causes a conflict. We assume that a specification is expressed as a set of Horn clauses which is divided into two sets Tpst and Ttmp that are the unchangeable and changeable parts of the specification, respectively. Since a minimal revision is obtained by removing a minimal set of clauses from Ttmp so that the remaining set is consistent, our task can be restated as enumerating maximal consistent subsets of a given set of Horn clauses. Moreover, consistency property is monotone, that is, if a set of Horn clauses is consistent then every subset of the set is also consistent. Then, we can apply our previous method of enumerating maximal frequent sets in data mining which can be used for any enumeration for maximal subsets w.r.t. a monotone property. We analyze this algorithm by query complexity and sample complexity.
