**Constraint (information theory)**— Constraint in information theory refers to the degree of statistical dependence between or among variables. Garner[1] provides a thorough discussion of various forms of constraint (internal constraint, external constraint, total constraint) with… …32

**Constraint-based Routing Label Distribution Protocol**— (CR LDP) is a control protocol used in some computer networks. As of February 2003, the IETF MPLS working group deprecated CR LDP and decided to focus purely on RSVP TE. It is an extension of the Label Distribution Protocol (LDP), one of the… …33

**Constraint satisfaction**— In artificial intelligence and operations research, constraint satisfaction is the process of finding a solution to a set of constraints that impose conditions that the variables must satisfy. A solution is therefore a vector of variables that… …38

**Constraint learning**— In constraint satisfaction backtracking algorithms, constraint learning is a technique for improving efficiency. It works by recording new constraints whenever an inconsistency is found. This new constraint may reduce the search space, as future… …39

**Constraint satisfaction dual problem**— The dual problem is a reformulation of a constraint satisfaction problem expressing each constraint of the original problem as a variable. Dual problems only contain binary constraints, and are therefore solvable by algorithms tailored for such… …40

**Constraint algorithm**— In mechanics, a constraint algorithm is a method for satisfying constraints for bodies that obey Newton s equations of motion. There are three basic approaches to satisfying such constraints: choosing novel unconstrained coordinates ( internal… …
