As logic, constraint satisfaction faces the problem of inconsistency which itself naturally leads to the need of expressing preferences. Starting from (Rosenfeld, Hummel, & Zucker 1976), which defined fuzzy constraint networks, a variety of extended constraint frameworks have been proposed. Since 1995, several general axiomatic frameworks that try to cover all these proposals have been introduced. In this paper, we show how algorithms and axioms interacts on a specific class of algorithms: arc… CONTINUE READING
