"This analysis revealed the surprising result that, although the three semantics are closely related, it may be arbitrarily more difficult to enforce arguments using stable rather than semi-stable semantics, and also using semi-stable rather than preferred semantics."


Would you please explain what "enforce arguments" means?

https://books.google.com.tr/books?i...d also using semi-stable rather than"&f=false


Thank you.

Yes, to enforce arguments means to 'strengthen one's position' in the argument, and to make one's point almost undeniable.

Above context is about programing. I cannot understand your explanation because I cannot determine anyone's position there.

Thank you.

My guess is the author was thinking about enforcing rules about the data type of arguments to a function or method.
