A survey of reasoning systems based on Euler diagrams

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Euler diagrams have been used for centuries as a means for conveying ideas in an intuitive, informal way. Recently much research has been conducted to develop formal, diagrammatic reasoning systems based on Euler diagrams. Most of these systems extend Euler diagrams by adding further syntax to increase expressiveness. In this paper we survey such systems and draw comparisons between them.
