Project Description

Solving systems of linear inequalities and closely related optimisation problems are fundamental mathematical problems with a wide range of applications such verification, constraint solving, planning and scheduling. Recently we have discovered two novel algorithms for solving linear constraints: conflict resolution [1] and bound propagation [2]. These methods were inspired by techniques which made propositional satisfiability scalable to industrial-size problems: unit propagation, backjumping and learning. This is just one example of the sort of project that might be available in this research group. The precise project will be decided upon in consultation with the supervisor.


Requirements: Candidates should have a strong interest in logic/math, willingness to program and experiment with new ideas.
