An introduction to interval-based constraint processing.
Renker, Gerrit; Ahriz, Hatem
Constraint programming is often associated with solving problems over finite domains. Many applications in engineering, CAD and design, however, require solving problems over continuous (real-valued) domains. While simple constraint solvers can solve linear constraints with the inaccuracy of floating-point arithmetic, methods based on interval arithmetic allow exact (interval) solutions over a much wider range of problems. Applications of interval-based programming extend the range of solvable problems from non-linear polynomials up to those involving ordinary differential equations. In this text, we give an introduction to current approaches, methods and implementations of interval-based constraint programming and solving. Special care is taken to provide a uniform and consistent notation, since the literature in this field employs many seemingly different, but yet conceptually related, notations and terminology.
