Constraint Modelling: A Challenge for First Order Automated Reasoning (Invited Talk)

John K. Slaney
2008 Conference on Automated Deduction  
Properties of the model independent of the data may thus be established by first order reasoning.  ...  The process of modelling a problem in a form suitable for solution by constraint satisfaction or operations research techniques, as opposed to the process of solving it once formulated, requires a significant  ...  1 We have benefitted greatly from being in a team that has included Michael Norrish, Rajeev Gore, Jeremy Dawson, Jia Meng, Anbulagan and Jinbo Huang, and from the presence in the same laboratory of an  ...

Mechanized Reasoning for Continuous Problem Domains (Invited Talk)

Rob Arthan
2008 Conference on Automated Deduction  
I discuss one approach to linear continuous control systems and consider the challenges and opportunities raised for mechanized reasoning.  ...  Specification and verification in continuous problem domains are key topics for the practical application of formal methods and mechanized reasoning.  ...  The approach to reasoning about linear systems is joint work with Ursula Martin, Erik Arne Mathiesen and Paulo Oliva and was supported by EPSRC grants GR/M98340 and GR/L48256.  ...

Analysing Privacy-Type Properties in Cryptographic Protocols (Invited Talk)

Stéphanie Delaune, Michael Wagner
2018 International Conference on Rewriting Techniques and Applications  
In order to ensure privacy, these chips include a mechanism, i.e. a cryptographic protocol, that does not let the passport disclose private information to external users except the intended terminal.  ...  For example, passports are no more pure paper documents. Instead, they contain a chip that stores additional information such as pictures and fingerprints of their holder.  ...  Nevertheless, all existing models share some common features: messages are modelled using first-order terms, and they propose some constructions for modelling communication and taking into account the  ...

Formalizing the metatheory of logical calculi and automatic provers in Isabelle/HOL (invited talk)

Jasmin Christian Blanchette
2019 Proceedings of the 8th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Certified Programs and Proofs - CPP 2019  
In this paper, I describe and reflect on three verification subprojects to which I contributed: a first-order resolution prover, an imperative SAT solver, and generalized term orders for λ-free higher-order  ...  At the heart of the project is the conviction that proof assistants have become mature enough to actually help researchers in automated reasoning when they develop new calculi and tools.  ...  A First-Order Ordered Resolution Prover Nearly two decades after its publication, the Handbook of Automated Reasoning [84] remains an invaluable resource for researchers in the area.  ...

Business Visibility with Web Services: Making Sense of Your IT Operations and of What They Mean To You (Invited talk)

Fabio Casati, Vijay Machiraju
2003 International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering  
Establishing this correlation enables application management to become a tool for managing not only the IT infrastructure, but also the business.  ...  comprehensive visibility over the execution of IT operations and, perhaps even more importantly, how it is possible to assess the correlation between IT operations and metrics that are relevant from a  ...  This is possible for two main reasons: the first is that Web services are at a higher level of abstractions, closer to the business.  ...

Explaining Ourselves: Human-Aware Constraint Reasoning

Eugene Freuder
Constraint reasoning offers particular opportunities and challenges in this regard.  ...  A good foundation for human-awareness should enable ourselves and our "AIs" to "explain ourselves" naturally to each other.  ...  For example, Jean-Francois Puget, now an IBM Distinguished Engineer, gave an invited talk at CP 2004 entitled "The next challenge for CP: Ease of use" (Puget 2004) .  ...

Proofs by Deduction [chapter]

2017 Logic and Language Models for Computer Science  
Models and proofs even play an integral role within deductive tools as major methods for efficient proof search rely on refining a simultaneous search for a model or a proof.  ...  Proofs and models serve two main purposes: (1) as an upcoming paradigm towards the next generation of automated deduction tools where search relies on (partial) proofs and models; (2) as the actual result  ...  that satisfy the specification to a set of first-order constraints.  ...

Research-based assessment affordances and constraints: Perceptions of physics faculty

Adrian Madsen, Sarah B. McKagan, Mathew Sandy Martinuk, Alexander Bell, Eleanor C. Sayre
2016 Physical Review Physics Education Research  
To help faculty use research-based materials in a more significant way, we learn about their perceived needs and desires and use this information to suggest ways for the Physics Education Research community  ...  First, many faculty are interested in using RBAs but have practical needs around how to do so: how to find them, which ones there are, and how to administer them.  ...  Many faculty talked about wanting a human connection, which suggests that the most common dissemination model of change is insufficient to meet this need.  ...

Expressive power and abstraction in Essence

David G. Mitchell, Eugenia Ternovska
2008 Constraints  
Development of languages for specifying or modelling problems is an important direction in constraint modelling.  ...  Our study is an application of descriptive complexity theory, and illustrates the value of taking a logic-based view of modelling and specification languages.  ...  The constraints are, except for a small syntactic change, formulas of multisorted first order logic.  ...

Signal Classification under structure sparsity constraints [article]

Tiep Huu Vu
2018 arXiv   pre-print
A key emphasis of this work is to formulate novel optimization problems for learning dictionary and structured sparse representations.  ...  Object Classification is a key direction of research in signal and image processing, computer vision and artificial intelligence.  ...  For the shared part, we impose two intuitive constraints. First, the shared dictionary must have a low-rank structure.  ...
