Unordered Domains

(Related publications: [PUBLink] [PUBLink])

State resource domains in our agent model may not only be two-valued, like the Door with Open and Closed values. For example, there may be an additional Locked value. In a situation of incomplete knowledge, each value must have an associated knowledge level of

The figure below shows an example of an agent going away and leaving a door open for which the agent has the only key.

Because of the XOR-relation of the domain values, some propagations can be made within a state resource. If only one domain value has a knowledge level of Unknown, then this value gets the knowledge level Known. If only one domain value is not Not, then this value must be the state resource's state.
