McCluskey, T.L. and Simpson, R.M. (2005) Towards an Algebraic Formulation of Domain Definitions using Parameterised Machines. Proceedings of the Annual PLANSIG Conference. ISSN 1368-5708

Abstractly specifying, rapidly creating, and re-using models of domain structure are desirable
goals for knowledge engineering in AI Planning. However, while planning algorithms, and now knowledge engineering itself, are maturing areas of research, the descriptions used to formulate
dynamic domain descriptions is under researched. In this paper we describe on-going work
attempting to establish an algebraic approach to constructing domain descriptions.
We postulate that this formulation will serve several purposes: it will help descriptions of
domains to be rapidly built up by composing and interfacing pre-defined abstract, primitive machines.
It will help engineers re-use existing domains, and it will serve as a semantics for concrete
description languages such as PDDL.
