  • The goal of this course is to have each student acquire the knowledge on a new programming paradigm based on constraints over finite domains and provide experience of how to use these methods for solving combinatorial problems.
  • Introduction to constraint programming.
    Basic algorithms used in constraint programming systems
    (constraint satisfaction and consistency, optimisation).
    Finite domain constraints.
    Modelling with finite domain constraints.
    Searching methods and optimisation.
    Selected advanced issues.
Knowledge and Understanding
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able to use basic concepts of constraint programming
    be able to explain principles of constraint programming and define constraints for simple problems.
Competences and Skills
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able to model and implement constraint programs for a combinatorial problem
    be able to use appropriate heuristics to implement efficient search methods.
Judgement and Approach
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • demonstrate the ability to critically evaluate and compare different methods to solve combinatorial problems with help of constraint programming
