Computing Relaxations for the Three-Dimensional Stable Matching Problem with Cyclic Preferences

Authors: Ágnes Cseh, Guillaume Escamocher, and Luis Quesada

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 235, 28th International Conference on Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming (CP 2022)


Abstract
Constraint programming has proven to be a successful framework for determining whether a given instance of the three-dimensional stable matching problem with cyclic preferences (3dsm-cyc) admits a solution. If such an instance is satisfiable, constraint models can even compute its optimal solution for several different objective functions. On the other hand, the only existing output for unsatisfiable 3dsm-cyc instances is a simple declaration of impossibility. In this paper, we explore four ways to adapt constraint models designed for 3dsm-cyc to the maximum relaxation version of the problem, that is, the computation of the smallest part of an instance whose modification leads to satisfiability. We also extend our models to support the presence of costs on elements in the instance, and to return the relaxation with lowest total cost for each of the four types of relaxation. Empirical results reveal that our relaxation models are efficient, as in most cases, they show little overhead compared to the satisfaction version.

A Collection of Constraint Programming Models for the Three-Dimensional Stable Matching Problem with Cyclic Preferences

Authors: Ágnes Cseh, Guillaume Escamocher, Begüm Genç, and Luis Quesada

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 210, 27th International Conference on Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming (CP 2021)


Abstract
We introduce five constraint models for the 3-dimensional stable matching problem with cyclic preferences and study their relative performances under diverse configurations. While several constraint models have been proposed for variants of the two-dimensional stable matching problem, we are the first to present constraint models for a higher number of dimensions. We show for all five models how to capture two different stability notions, namely weak and strong stability. Additionally, we translate some well-known fairness notions (i.e. sex-equal, minimum regret, egalitarian) into 3-dimensional matchings, and present how to capture them in each model. Our tests cover dozens of problem sizes and four different instance generation methods. We explore two levels of commitment in our models: one where we have an individual variable for each agent (individual commitment), and another one where the determination of a variable involves pairing the three agents at once (group commitment). Our experiments show that the suitability of the commitment depends on the type of stability we are dealing with. Our experiments not only led us to discover dependencies between the type of stability and the instance generation method, but also brought light to the role that learning and restarts can play in solving this kind of problems.

Positive and Negative Length-Bound Reachability Constraints

Authors: Luis Quesada and Kenneth N. Brown

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 210, 27th International Conference on Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming (CP 2021)


Abstract
In many application problems, including physical security and wildlife conservation, infrastructure must be configured to ensure or deny paths between specified locations. We model the problem as sub-graph design subject to constraints on paths and path lengths, and propose length-bound reachability constraints. Although reachability in graphs has been modelled before in constraint programming, the interaction of positive and negative reachability has not been studied in depth. We prove that deciding whether a set of positive and negative reachability constraints are satisfiable is NP complete. We show the effectiveness of our approach on decision problems, and also on optimisation problems. We compare our approach with existing constraint models, and we demonstrate significant improvements in runtime and solution costs, on a new problem set.
