Second of a three-volume edited collection of key papers from the field of AI and design, aimed at providing a state-of-the-art description of the field, and focusing on how ideas and methods from artificial intelligence can help engineers in the design of physical artifacts and processes. The volumes survey a wide variety of applications in the areas of civil, chemical, electrical, computer, VLSI, and mechanical engineering, and are intended for those working in these fields and for AI researchers interested in AI applications to engineering design. Volume II covers such topics as models of innovative design - advanced reasoning and design systems based on case-based reasoning, structural mutation, multiple knowledge sources, and planning of the design process; reasoning about physical systems - AI approaches for performing temporal qualitative reasoning about physical systems; and reasoning about geometry - AI approaches for reasoning about geometry and kinematics.
