Foundations of Constraint Satisfaction
by Edward Tsang
Publisher: Academic Press 1993
Number of pages: 300
Constraint satisfaction is a general problem in which the goal is to find values for a set of variables that will satisfy a given set of constraints. It is the core of many applications in artificial intelligence, and has found its application in many areas, such as planning and scheduling. Published in 1993, this book was the first attempt to define the field of constraint satisfaction. It covers both the theoretical and the implementation aspects of the subject. It provides a framework for studying this field, relates different research, and resolves ambiguity in a number of concepts and algorithms in the literature.
