Abstract/Summary Usually a default rule A : B/C is intended to mean that if A holds in a state of affairs a B is consistent, then C follows by default. However, C is not a necessary conclusion: different states of affairs are possible (conceivable). According to this view, Meyer and van der Hoek developed a multimodal logic, called S5P(n), for treating non-monotonic reasoning in a monotonic setting. In this paper we shall describe a proof search algorithm for S5P(n) which has been implemented as a Prolog Interpreter.
