The current PhD (Piled Higher and Deeper) comic (a comic written around the lives of doctoral and postdoc students: I fear I see too much of Dr. Smith in me!) revolves around Constraint Programming as applied to wedding planning. Karin Petrie, a well known constraint programmer, had lunch with the author of PhD, and I expect this is not a coincidence.
One thought on “Constraint Programming Makes the Big Time”
Of course. There is always the “do nothing” solution.
