9780521825832: Principles of Constraint Programming

Scheduling, vehicle routing and timetabling are all examples of constraint problems, and methods to solve them rely on the idea of constraint propagation and search. This book meets the need for a modern, multidisciplinary introduction to the field that covers foundations and applications. Written by Krzysztof Apt, an authority on the subject, it will be welcomed by graduate students and professionals. With the insertion of constraint techniques into programming environments, new developments have accelerated the solution process. Constraint programming combines ideas from artificial intelligence, programming languages, databases, and operational research.

Book Description:

Scheduling, vehicle routing and timetabling are all examples of constraint problems, and methods to solve them rely on the idea of constraint propagation and search. With the insertion of constraint techniques into programming environments, new developments have accelerated the solution process: constraint programming combines ideas from artificial intelligence, programming languages, databases, and operational research. This book meets the need for a modern, multidisciplinary introduction covering both foundations and applications. Written by a leading figure in the subject, it will be welcomed by graduate students and professionals.

Review:

Review of the hardback: '... a fundamental new way of looking at constraint programming ... This book ... is a great present to the constraint programming community, which will certainly advance scientifically because of its publication. We need good books to educate new people to Constraint Programming in the best way, and this book is a great way to do this.' Theory and Practice of Logic Programming

Review of the hardback: '... a fundamental new way of looking at constraint programming ... done with the highest level of precision and formality, without however making the reading task too heavy, as it is typical of Apt's writing style ... I really enjoyed reading Apt's book and am using it for my current course on constraint programming ... it is extremely well written ... the formal style never makes reading a heavy task ... it provides a very original abstract view of the main concepts of constraint propagation and constraint programming, which can be very useful both for beginners who need to understand[ing] these concepts without getting lost, and also for experienced researchers ... I have always been stunned by his exceptional ability to be formal and clear. This book is yet another witness for this ability ... a great present to the constraint programming community, which will certainly advance scientifically because of its publication. Journal of TLP

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2010. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Constraints are everywhere: most computational problems can be described in terms of restrictions imposed on the set of possible solutions, and constraint programming is a problem-solving technique that works by incorporating those restrictions in a programming environment. It draws on methods from combinatorial optimisation and artificial intelligence, and has been successfully applied in a number of fields from scheduling, computational biology, finance, electrical engineering and operations research through to numerical analysis. This textbook for upper-division students provides a thorough and structured account of the main aspects of constraint programming. The author provides many worked examples that illustrate the usefulness and versatility of this approach to programming, as well as many exercises throughout the book that illustrate techniques, test skills and extend the text. Pointers to current research, extensive historical and bibliographic notes, and a comprehensive list of references will also be valuable to professionals in computer science and artificial intelligence.
