Description Logics (DL)

The term "description logic" refers to a logic that focuses on descriptions as its principal means for expressing logical expressions. A description logic system emphasizes the use of classification and subsumption reasoning as its primary mode of inference.

Today description logic has become a cornerstone of the Semantic Web for its use in the design of ontologies. The OWL-DL and OWL-Lite sub-languages of the W3C-endorsed Web Ontology Language (OWL) are based on a description logic.
