  • Automatically improving constraint models in Savile Row through associative-commutative common subexpression elimination 

    Nightingale, Peter; Akgun, Ozgur; Gent, Ian P.; Jefferson, Christopher; Miguel, Ian (Springer, 2014-09-08) - Conference item
    When solving a problem using constraint programming, constraint modelling is widely acknowledged as an important and difficult task. Even a constraint modelling expert may explore many models and spend considerable time ...
  • Qualitative modelling via constraint programming 

    Kelsey, Tom; Kotthoff, Lars; Jefferson, Christopher Anthony; Linton, Stephen Alexander; Miguel, Ian James; Nightingale, Peter; Gent, Ian Philip (2014-04) - Journal article
    Qualitative modelling is a technique integrating the fields of theoretical computer science, artificial intelligence and the physical and biological sciences. The aim is to be able to model the behaviour of systems without ...
  • Maximal subsemigroups of finite transformation and diagram monoids 

    East, James; Kumar, Jitender; Mitchell, James D.; Wilson, Wilf A. (2018-06-15) - Journal article
    We describe and count the maximal subsemigroups of many well-known transformation monoids, and diagram monoids, using a new unified framework that allows the treatment of several classes of monoids simultaneously. The ...
  • Computing maximal subsemigroups of a finite semigroup 

    Donoven, C. R.; Mitchell, J. D.; Wilson, W. A. (2018-07-01) - Journal article
    A proper subsemigroup of a semigroup is maximal if it is not contained in any other proper subsemigroup. A maximal subsemigroup of a finite semigroup has one of a small number of forms, as described in a paper of Graham, ...
  • Proof-relevant Horn clauses for dependent type inference and term synthesis 

    Farka, František; Komendantskya, Ekaterina; Hammond, Kevin (2018) - Journal article
    First-order resolution has been used for type inference for many years, including in Hindley-Milner type inference, type-classes, and constrained data types. Dependent types are a new trend in functional languages. In this ...
