Problem-solving methods for knowledge-based systems establish the behavior of such systems by de ning the roles in which domain knowledge is used and the ordering of inferences. Developers canâ€¦ (More)

Sorting a permutation by block moves is a task that every bridge player has to solve every time she picks up a new hand of cards. It is also a problem for the computational biologist, for block movesâ€¦ (More)

Purpose â€“ During the last decades, different quality management concepts, including total quality management (TQM), six sigma and lean, have been applied by many different organisations. Althoughâ€¦ (More)

We present a unified theory for permutation models of all the infinite families of finite and affine Weyl groups, including interpretations of the length function and the weak order. We also give newâ€¦ (More)
