A prototype system is described whose core functionality is, based on propositional logic, the elimination of second-order operators, such as Boolean quantifiers and operators for projection, forgetting and circumscription. This approach allows to express many representational and computational tasks in knowledge representation -- for example computation of abductive explanations and models with respect to logic programming semantics -- in a uniform operational system, backed by a uniform classical semantic framework.**Forschungsgruppe:****Research Group:**WissensverarbeitungKnowledge Representation and Reasoning
