The Complexity of Constraint Satisfaction Problems (Invited Talk)

Abstract

The tractability conjecture for constraint satisfaction problems (CSPs) describes the constraint languages over a finite domain whose CSP can be solved in polynomial-time. The precise formulation of the conjecture uses basic notions from universal algebra. In this talk, we give a short introduction to the universal-algebraic approach to the study of the complexity of CSPs. Finally, we discuss attempts to generalise the tractability conjecture to large classes of constraint languages over infinite domains, in particular for constraint languages that arise in qualitative temporal and spatial reasoning.
