Some of these solvers have been integrated into a programming language, thus defining a new programming paradigm called constraint programming: to solve a CSP with constraint programming language
, it is sufficient to specify constraints; their resolution is supported automatically (without needing a program) by constraint solvers integrated language.
SET provides a very general framework for adding sets to a constraint programming language.
The ability to treat set operations as constraints allows partially specified sets to be managed in a very flexible way, while preserving the clean declarative structure of (pure) logic and constraint programming languages.
The third part shows how the ant colony may be integrated within a constraint programming language, thus combining the expressive power of constraint programming languages, to describe problems in a declarative way, and the solving power of ant colony optimization to efficiently solve these problems.
It describes the main existing approaches for solving constraint satisfaction problems, including complete tree search approaches and metaheuristics, and shows how they can be integrated within constraint programming languages.
Indeed CLIC can be thought of as a hybrid imperative-logic constraint programming language.
One of the most promising innovations in recent programming language design are constraint programming languages and, in particular, constraint logic programming (CLP) languages which combine constraints with logic programming (e.
More generally, the proof theory defined for CCP can be applied to CLP with dynamic scheduling by translating the latter into a concurrent constraint programming language which we call [Delta]-CCP and which is basically an extension of CCP with local choice.
The concurrent constraint programming languages are defined parametrically with respect to a given constraint system.
Vijay Saraswat has won the 1989 ACM Doctoral Dissertation Award for his thesis, Concurrent Constraint Programming Languages.
Concurrent Constraint Programming Languages introduces a novel class of programming languages with important consequences for logic programming, constraint systems and parallel processing.
