Course Material

I have developed Powerpoint for Windows 97 Version 7.0 slides for a medium length course in constraint programming based on the book. They are available here (gzipped). Only chapters 1--10 are covered and most starred material is ommitted. This is an updated version of the original slides with errors corrected and True Type Fonts included. The last makes them big but reduces problems in versions (apparently).

- Chapter 1: Constraints
- Chapter 2: Simplification, Optimization and Implication
- Chapter 3: Finite Domain Constraints
- Chapter 4: Constraint Logic Programs
- Chapter 5: Simple Modelling
- Chapter 6: Using Data Structures
- Chapter 7: Controlling Search
- Chapter 8: Modelling with Finite Domain Constraints
- Chapter 9: Advanced Programming Techniques
- Chapter 10: CLP Systems

Copies of the slides in postscript (gzipped) and PDF for handing out to students are included below. I have had problem printing these in the past so I apologise if you have these problems.
