Abstract

The Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a language used to represent documents of the Semantic Web, the proposed infrastructure extension of the World Wide Web. In this project we implement the algorithms presented in a paper by Gutierrez, Hurtado, and Mendelson (Principles of Database Systems 2004) which are used to test for RDF equivalence. We also fill a gap in the paper by Gutierrez et al, by proving RDF-equivalence between two notions of graph closure used there.
