Programming Constraint Services: High-Level Programming of Standard and New Constraint Services (Lecture Notes in Computer Science)
Springer | 2002-04-29 | ISBN 3540433716 | PDF | Pages 176 | 1.91 MB
This book is concerned with the architecture and implementation of constraint engines. The author's main contribution is that constraint services, such as search and combinators, are made programmable; this is achieved by devising computation spaces as simple abstractions for programming constraint services at a high level. State-of-the-art and novel search strategies such as visual interactive search and parallel search are covered.
This book is indispensable reading for anyone seriously interested in constraint technology.
