Abstract
Abductive problems and their solutions are presented by means of justification logic. We introduce additional meta-constructions in order to generate and compare different solutions to the same abductive problem. Our approach has three advantages: it makes structurally explicit the solution to an abductive problem ; it gives a precise meaning to the notion of evidence; it provides clear definitions and procedures for the comparison of solutions that can be adapted to different needs.
