Abstract
We present a new saturation-based decidability result for inductive validity. Let $\Sigma$ be a finite signature in which all function symbols are at most unary and let $N$ be a satisfiable Horn clause set without equality in which all positive literals are linear. If $N\cup\{A_1,\ldots,A_n\rightarrow\}$ belongs to a finitely saturating clause class, then it is decidable whether a sentence of the form $\forall\exists^* (A_1\wedge\ldots\wedge A_n)$ is valid in the minimal model of $N$.
