"The Crossword puzzle (CP) is a simple problem to illustrate the formalization process of a problem into a CSP. The problem is to place words of a dictionary in a given structure satisfying certain constraints. The variables are the rows and columns in the crossword, and their values are the words in a dictionary."

As a creative marketer, you are already living and breathing the content you create, manage, and deliver to your audience. But if you're like most of us, it can sometimes be hard to see the forest for the trees. With that in mind, we have developed a powerful new platform for exploring and managing content within the Boomtrain Marketing Engine. This new feature allows you to easily see what content Boomtrain has ingested from your site, explore your content through flexible and powerful filtering, and establish global constraints for content recommendations within Boomtrain.

Provides readable, inductive definitions and offers a unified framework using Getzen systems. This textbook, aimed at junior to senior undergraduate students and first-year graduate students, presents artificial intelligence (AI) using a coherent framework to study the design of intelligent computational agents. This book has been written for both professional programmers and home hobbyists who already know how to program in Java and who want to learn practical AI programming techniques. Provides readable, inductive definitions and offers a unified framework using Getzen systems.
This paper explores new approaches to the symmetric traveling-salesman problem in which 1-trees, which are a slight variant of spanning trees, play an essential role. A 1-tree is a tree together with an additional vertex connected to the tree by two edges. We observe that (i) a tour is precisely a 1-tree in which each vertex has degree 2, (ii) a minimum 1-tree is easy to compute, and (iii) the transformation on “intercity distances” cij → Cij + πi + πj leaves the traveling-salesman problem invariant but changes the minimum 1-tree.
