The context of this paper is the problem of merging data provided by several information sources, which can be contradictory. It takes as a starting point, one of the majority merging operators that Konieczny and Pino-Perez have defined [ KPP98] , [ KPP99]. In these papers, the authors have characterized, from a semantical point of view, some majority merging operators. The aim of our work is to define a logical calculus which corresponds to one of these operators. This paper focuses on the case when the information sources are sets of literals. It presents a logic which is sound and complete for some interesting kind of formulas and an associated theorem prover.
