On a generalization of triangulated graphs for domains decomposition of CSPs
In [Jegou, 1993], a decomposition method has been introduced for improving search efficiency in the area of Constraint Satisfaction Problems. This method is based on properties of micro-structure of CSPs related to properties of triangulated graphs. This decomposition allows to transform an instance of CSP in a collection of sub-problems easier to solve, and then gives a natural and efficient way for a parallel implementation [Habbas et al, 2000]. In this paper, we present a generalization of this approach, which is based on a generalization of triangulated graphs. This generalization allows to define the level of decomposition which can be fixed by a graph parameter. The larger this parameter is, the more level of decomposition that is the number of sub-problems is. As a consequence, we can then define the level of decomposition, with respect to the nature of the parallel configuration used (the number of processors). First experiments reported here show that this extension increases...
