Broken Triangles Revisited
Refereed Conference Meeting Proceeding
A broken triangle is a pattern of (in)compatibilities between assignments in a binary CSP (constraint satisfaction problem). In the absence of certain broken triangles, satisfiability-preserving domain reductions are possible via merging of domain values. We investigate the possibility of maximising the number of domain reduction operations by the choice of the order in which they are applied, as well as their interaction with arc consistency operations. It turns out that it is NP-hard to choose the best order.
