This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Constraint Programming aims at solving hard combinatorial problems, with a computation time increasing in practice exponentially. The methods are today efficient enough to solve large industrial problems, in a generic framework. However, solvers are dedicated to a single variable type: integer or real. Solving mixed problems relies on ad hoc transformations. In another field, Abstract Interpretation offers tools to prove program properties, by studying an abstraction of their concrete semantics, that is, the set of possible values of the variables during an execution. Various representations for these abstractions have been proposed. They are called abstract domains. Abstract domains can mix any type of variables, and even represent relations between the variables. In this work, we define abstract domains for Constraint Programming, so as to build a generic solving method, dealing with both integer and real variables. We also study the octagons abstract domain, already defined in Abstract Interpretation. Guiding the search by the octagonal relations, we obtain good results on a continuous benchmark. We also define our solving method using Abstract Interpretation techniques, in order to include existing abstract domains. Our solver, AbSolute, is able to solve mixed problems and use relational domains. Exploits the over-approximation methods to integrate AI tools in the methods of CP Exploits the relationships captured to solve continuous problems more effectively Learn from the developers of a solver capable of handling practically all abstract domains

Summary : Constraint programming is like an octopus spreading its tentacles into databases, operations research, artificial intelligence, and many other areas. The concept of constraint programming was introduced in artificial intelligence and graphics in the 1960s and 1970s. Now the related techniques are used and studied in many fields of computing. Different ...

Summary : Abstract: "We present a unifying framework for integer linear programming and finite domain constraint programming, which is based on a distinction of primitive and non-primitive constraints and a general notion of branch-and-infer. We compare the two approaches with respect to their modeling and solving capabilities. We introduce symbolic constraint abstractions ...
