Chapter 2 Constraint Satisfaction: An Emerging Paradigm

Eugene C. Freuder, Alan K. Mackworth

This chapter focuses on the emergence of constraint satisfaction, with constraint languages, as a new paradigm within artificial intelligence and computer science during the period from 1965 (when Golomb and Baumert published “Backtrack programming” [34]) to 1985 (when Mackworth and Freuder published “The complexity of some polynomial network consistency algorithms for constraint satisfaction problems” [55]). The rest of this handbook will cover much of the material introduced here in more detail, as well as, of course, continuing on ...
