The first version of this solver was written as part of Key Hyckenberg's MSc thesis in 1995, with contributions from Greger Ottosson at the Computing Science Department, Uppsala University. The code was later rewritten by Mats Carlsson with contributions by Nicolas Beldiceanu. Péter Szeredi contributed material for this manual chapter.
The development of this software was supported by the Swedish National Board for Technical and Industrial Development (NUTEK) under the auspices of Advanced Software Technology (ASTEC) Center of Competence at Uppsala University.
We include a collection of examples, among which some have been distributed with the INRIA implementation of clp(FD) [Diaz & Codognet 93].
