Abstract
We investigate the problem of reasoning with
partitions of related logical axioms. Our moti­
vation is two­fold. First, we are concerned with
how to reason effectively with multiple knowl­
edge bases that have overlap in content. Second,
and more fundamentally, we are concerned with
how to exploit structure inherent in a set of logi­
cal axioms to induce a partitioning of the axioms
that will lead to an improvement in the efficiency
of reasoning. To this end, we provide algorithms
for reasoning with partitions of axioms in propo­
sitional and first­order logic. Craig's interpola­
