Deterministic Annealing for Semi-Supervised Structured Output Learning
In this paper we propose a new approach for semi-supervised structured output learning. Our approach uses relaxed labeling on unlabeled data to deal with the combinatorial nature ...

Exact Closest String as a Constraint Satisfaction Problem
We report the first evaluation of Constraint Satisfaction as a computational framework for solving closest string problems. We show that careful consideration of symbol occurrenc...

A survey of homogeneous structures
A relational first order structure is homogeneous if it is countable (possibly finite) and every isomorphism between finite substructures extends to an automorphism. This artic...

Integrity Constraints for Linked Data
Linked Data makes one central addition to the Semantic Web principles: all entity URIs should be dereferenceable to provide an authoritative RDF representation. URIs in a linked da...

Channel-based coordination via constraint satisfaction
Coordination in Reo emerges from the composition of the behavioural constraints of primitives, such as channels, in a component connector. Understanding and implementing Reo, howe...

Retractions to Pseudoforests
For a fixed graph H, let Ret(H) denote the problem of deciding whether a given input graph is retractable to H. We classify the complexity of Ret(H) when H is a graph (with loops ...

The complexity of temporal constraint satisfaction problems
A temporal constraint language is a set of relations that has a first-order definition in (Q, <), the dense linear order of the rational numbers. We present a complete comple...

Maintenance scheduling problems as benchmarks for constraint algorithms
The paper focuses on evaluating constraint satisfaction search algorithms on application based random problem instances. The application we use is a well-studied problem in the el...

Program Understanding as Constraint Satisfaction: Representation and Reasoning Techniques
The process of understanding a source code in a high-level programming language involves complex computation. Given a piece of legacy code and a library of program plan templates, ...
