TESTing Planning Systems.
Full text not available from this repository.
In this paper we introduce a system called TEST (Theory Extension Sepcification Tool) which allows one to construct functional specifications of AI planners. TEST Relies on an analysis of planning as theory extension. Theory extension is a non-deductive form of reasoning which attempts to add further assumptions to a system's knowledge base about the world. These asuumptions are new in the sense that they do not already logically follow from the system's knowledge. We do not conceive of planning and briefly describe the present implementation of TEST. We next show how the essential characteristics of various families of planner can be represented in our framework.
