We show that global caching can be used with propagation of both satisfiability and unsatisfiability in a sound manner to give an EXPTIME algorithm for checking satisfiability w.r.t. a TBox in the basic description logic ALC. Our algorithm is based on a simple traditional tableau calculus which builds an and-or graph where no two nodes of the graph contain the same formula set. When a duplicate node is about to be created, we use the pre-existing node as a proxy, even if the proxy is from a...[Show more]
