Beyond Finite Domains
, 1994
"... Introduction A finite domain constraint system can be viewed as an linear integer constraint system in which each variable has an upper and lower bound. Finite domains have been used successfully in Constraint Logic Programming (CLP) languages, for example CHIP [4], to attack combinatorial problems ..."

An OpenEnded Finite Domain Constraint Solver
, 1997
"... We describe the design and implementation of a finite domain constraint solver embedded in a Prolog system using an extended unification mechanism via attributed variables as a generic constraint interface. The solver is essentially a scheduler for indexicals, i.e. reactive functional rules encodin ..."

Entailment of Finite Domain Constraints
, 1994
"... Using a glassbox theory of finite domain constraints, FD, we show how the entailment of userdefined constraints can be expressed by antimonotone FD constraints. We also provide an algorithm for checking the entailment and consistency of FD constraints. FD is shown to be expressive enough to a ..."

Mixture Sets on Finite Domains
"... Mixture sets were introduced by Herstein and Milnor (1953) to prove a generalised expected utility theorem. Mixture sets provide an axiomatisation of convexity suitable for discrete, as well as continuous, environments (Mongin, 2001). However, the nature of mixture sets over finite domains has been ..."

Simplifiaction of Finite Domain Constraints
, 1998
"... An important issue in Constraint Logic Programming (CLP) systems is how to output constraints in a usable form. Typically, only a small subset ~ x of the variables in constraints is of interest, and so an informal statement of the problem at hand is: given a conjunction C(~x; ~ y) of constraints, e ..."

, express 9~y C(~x; ~ y) in the simplest form. [13] showed how a set of constraints over the real domain can be simplified. We present here how we can simplify a set of constraints over finite domains. First, we start by a bref sight on the simplification of the constraints over real domain, then we show
Ciphers with Arbitrary Finite Domains
, 2002
"... Abstract. We explore the problem of enciphering members of a finite set M where k = M  is arbitrary (in particular, it need not be a power of two). We want to achieve this goal starting from a block cipher (which requires a message space of size N =2 n, for some n). We look at a few solutions to t ..."

Hexagonal patterns in finite domains

"... In many mathematical models for pattern formation, a regular hexagonal pattern is stable in an infinite region. However, laboratory and numerical experiments are carried out in finite domains, and this imposes certain constraints on the possible patterns. In finite rectangular domains, it is shown t ..."
