This paper presents a general framework to define time granularity systems. We identify the main dimensions along which different systems can be characterized, and investigate the formal relationships among granularities in these systems. The paper also introduces the notion of a network of temporal constraints with (multiple) granularities emphasizing the semantic and computational differences from constraint networks with a single granularity. Consistency of networks with multiple… CONTINUE READING
