Abstract:Search is ubiquitous in computer science, but most searches are performed under constraints: time, memory, dependences. We study several cases of constrained search and present methods for improving their performance. Execution of Prolog programs amounts to a search with several types of dependences. We present a method for static reordering of goals in Prolog clauses, characterizing the degrees of equivalence between the original and reordered code, characterizing restrictions on reordering, presenting a heuristic for choosing amongst permissible reorderings, and showing how to restore equivalence that might be lost in the reordering process. Heuristic search in restricted memory is another constrained search. We present a new method called speculative search which is competitive with other searches used when memory is limited.
