Justin Pearson: The Essence of Constraint Programming
Constraint Programming (CP) is a relatively young paradigm, geared
towards the elegant modelling and efficient solving of combinatorial
problems, which are so ubiquitous and important in management,
engineering, and science. CP works in a way orthogonal and
complementary to other optimisation technologies, such as integer
programming (IP), Boolean satisfiability (SAT), and answer-set
programming (ASP). CP has become the technology of choice in some
areas, such as scheduling and configuration.
I will present the essential principles of CP and combinatorial
optimisation, and present some our research group's
(http://www.it.uu.se/research/group/optimisation research activities
within CP and optimisation.
