    • n alces A genus of ruminant mammals of the deer family, Cervidæ. They are of immense stature, and have a heavy, ungainly body, very high at the withers; a short, thick neck, with a beard at the throat; a tumid muzzle: broadly palmate horns in the male; long ears; coarse, brittle hair; and no metatarsal gland, but a small tarsal gland covered with reversed hair. The genus includes two species, or one species of two varieties, namely, the animal of northern Europe called the elk and the corresponding animal of northern North America known as the moose. See elk, 2, and moose.

The decomposition of Global Conformal Invariants I: On a conjecture of Deser and Schwimmer
The basic Boolean description logic ALC has as its constructors the Boolean connectives and the universal restriction ∀r, which, for a concept C and a binary relation symbol r, gives the concept ∀r.C containing precisely those ob jects x from the underlying domain for which y ∈ C whenever xry .
Undecidability of the unification and admissibility problems for modal and description logics
The language ALC is a notational variant of the basic modal logic K with infinitely many modal operators: propositional variables correspond to atomic concepts, while ∀r.C is interpreted in a relational structure in the same way as 2r (the modal box interpreted by the accessibility relation r).

We refer the reader to [Baader et al. 2003] for precise definitions and a discussion of syntax and semantics of ALC and other description logics.
Undecidability of the unification and admissibility problems for modal and description logics
Baader and Kuesters [2001] and Baader and Narendran [2001] develop decision procedures for the concept unification problem for a number of sub-Boolean DLs, that is, DLs which do not have all the Boolean connectives as constructors and are, therefore, either properly less expressive than ALC or incomparable with ALC .

Boolean DLs, that is, ALC and its extensions, is left as an open research problem.

However, we obtain the undecidability of this problem for extensions of ALC with nominals.
Undecidability of the unification and admissibility problems for modal and description logics
The smallest description logic containing ALC and nominals is known as ALCO, and by extending the mapping between modal and description languages indicated above, one can see that ALCO is a straightforward notational variant of the modal logic with infinitely many modal operators and nominals.
