Chapter 25 Constraint Applications in Networks

Helmut Simonis

In this chapter we discuss the use of Constraint Programming (CP) for network applications. Network problems arise in many different domains, we take a rather narrow view in this presentation and concentrate on three areas:

• electrical networks
• water (oil) networks
• data networks

Some of the earliest examples for CLP(R) were for analysing analog circuits, whose behavior can be described by Ohm’s law for the relation between resistance, voltage and current and Kirchhoff’s laws which defines how connected circuits behave. This early analysis later was extended ...
