|Title:||Maintaining generalized arc consistency on Ad-hoc n-ary boolean constraints||Authors:||Cheng, K.C.K.
|Issue Date:||2006||Citation:||Cheng, K.C.K.,Yap, R.H.C. (2006). Maintaining generalized arc consistency on Ad-hoc n-ary boolean constraints. Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence and Applications 141 : 78-82. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Binary decision diagrams (BDDs) can compactly rep- resent ad-hoc n-ary Boolean constraints. However, there is no gen- eralized arc consistency (GAC) algorithm which exploit BDDs. For example, the global case constraint by SICStus Prolog for ad-hoc constraints is designed for non-Boolean domains. In this paper, we introduce a new GAC algorithm, bddc, for BDD constraints. Our empirical results demonstrate the advantages of a new BDD-based global constraint-bddc is more efficient both in terms of mem- ory and time than the case constraint when dealing with ad-hoc Boolean constraints. This becomes important as the size of the ad- hoc constraints becomes large. © 2006 The authors.||Source Title:||Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence and Applications||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/77881||ISBN:||9781586036423||ISSN:||09226389|
