Abstract: We study here schedulers for a class of rules that naturally arise in the context of rule-based constraint programming. We systematically derive a scheduler for them from a generic iteration algorithm of Apt (2000). We apply this study to so-called membership rules of Apt and Monfroy (2001). This leads to an implementation that yields a considerably better performance for these rules than their execution as standard CHR rules. Finally, we show how redundant rules can be identified and how appropriately reduced sets of rules can be computed. © 2005 Cambridge University Press.
