To give a more extensive description of abductive reasoning we will divide the reasoning process into three parts that are examined independently. First, we will give a formal description of the abductive task that determines the underlying model. We discuss the setcover-based approach, the logic-based and knowledge-level approaches as well as semantic accounts for abduction. Methods for hypothesis generation are presented in section 3. In particular, we treat generation by resolution and generation by an Assumption-based Truth Maintenance System.

FLACH AND ANTONIS C. KAKAS on a deeper level of integration of the two forms of reasoning, where induction is perceived as hypothesising abductive (rather than deductive) theories. The deductive coverage relation for learning is replaced by abductive coverage, such that an inductive hypothesis H is a valid generalisation if the observations can be abductively explained by T' = T U H, rather than deductively entailed. A simple example of this is the extension of Explanation-Based Learning with abduction [Cohen, 1992; O'Rorke, 1994], such that deductive explanations are allowed to be completed by abductive assumptions before they are generalised.
