CMPE532 Constraint Programming Course Description:
Many computational problems can formulated as variables that take values from a certain domain, and restrictions on those values. Constraint programming is a problem solving technique that incorporates the idea of specifying a solution in terms of variables and restrictions on the values the variables. It benefits from methods and techniques of operations research, programming languages and artificial intelligence. It has been successfully applied to problems in scheduling, combinatorial optimization, diagnosis and reasoning, among others.
