Graph Invariants as Necessary Conditions for Global Constraints

Beldiceanu, Nicolas and Carlsson, Mats and Rampon, Jean-Xavier and Truchet, Charlotte (2005) Graph Invariants as Necessary Conditions for Global Constraints. [SICS Report]



This report presents a database of about 200 graph invariants for deriving systematically necessary conditions from the graph properties based representation of global constraints. This scheme is based on invariants on the graph characteristics used in the description of a global constraint. A SICStus Prolog implementation based on arithmetic and logical constraints as well as on indexicals is available.
