Minimizing conflicts: a heuristic repair method for constraint satisfaction and scheduling problems
 ARTIF. INTELL
, 1992
"... This paper describes a simple heuristic approach to solving largescale constraint satisfaction and scheduling problems. In this approach one starts with an inconsistent assignment for a set of variables and searches through the space of possible repairs. The search can be guided by a valueorderin ..."

ordering heuristic, the minconflicts heuristic, that attempts to minimize the number of constraint violations after each step. The heuristic can be used with a variety of different search strategies. We demonstrate empirically that on the nqueens problem, a technique based on this approach performs orders
For Most Large Underdetermined Systems of Linear Equations the Minimal ℓ1norm Solution is also the Sparsest Solution
 Comm. Pure Appl. Math
, 2004
"... We consider linear equations y = Φα where y is a given vector in R n, Φ is a given n by m matrix with n < m ≤ An, and we wish to solve for α ∈ R m. We suppose that the columns of Φ are normalized to unit ℓ 2 norm 1 and we place uniform measure on such Φ. We prove the existence of ρ = ρ(A) so that ..."

. In contrast, heuristic attempts to sparsely solve such systems – greedy algorithms and thresholding – perform poorly in this challenging setting. The techniques include the use of random proportional embeddings and almostspherical sections in Banach space theory, and deviation bounds for the eigenvalues
Topology Control of Multihop Wireless Networks using Transmit Power Adjustment
, 2000
"... We consider the problem of adjusting the transmit powers of nodes in a multihop wireless network (also called an ad hoc network) to create a desired topology. We formulate it as a constrained optimization problem with two constraints connectivity and biconnectivity, and one optimization objective ..."

For mobile networks, we present two distributed heuristics that adaptively adjust node transmit powers in response to topological changes and attempt to maintain a connected topology using
The geometry of graphs and some of its algorithmic applications
 COMBINATORICA
, 1995
"... In this paper we explore some implications of viewing graphs as geometric objects. This approach offers a new perspective on a number of graphtheoretic and algorithmic problems. There are several ways to model graphs geometrically and our main concern here is with geometric representations that res ..."

that respect the metric of the (possibly weighted) graph. Given a graph G we map its vertices to a normed space in an attempt to (i) Keep down the dimension of the host space and (ii) Guarantee a small distortion, i.e., make sure that distances between vertices in G closely match the distances between
Extensional versus intuitive reasoning: The conjunction fallacy in probability judgment
 Psychological Review
, 1983
"... Perhaps the simplest and the most basic qualitative law of probability is the conjunction rule: The probability of a conjunction, P(A&B), cannot exceed the probabilities of its constituents, P(A) and.P(B), because the extension (or the possibility set) of the conjunction is included in the exten ..."

in the extension of its constituents. Judgments under uncertainty, however, are often mediated by intuitive heuristics that are not bound by the conjunction rule. A conjunction can be more representative than one of its constituents, and instances of a specific category can be easier to imagine or to retrieve than
Conservation of resources: A new attempt at conceptualizing stress
 American Psychologist
, 1989
"... ABSTRACT: Major perspectives concerning stress are presented with the goal of clarifying the nature of what has proved to be a heuristic but vague construct. Current conceptualizations ofstress are challenged as being too phenomenological and ambiguous, and consequently, not given to direct empirica ..."

Automatic Construction of Decision Trees from Data: A MultiDisciplinary Survey
 Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery
, 1997
"... Decision trees have proved to be valuable tools for the description, classification and generalization of data. Work on constructing decision trees from data exists in multiple disciplines such as statistics, pattern recognition, decision theory, signal processing, machine learning and artificial ne ..."

Practical Feature Subset Selection for Machine Learning
, 1998
"... Machine learning algorithms automatically extract knowledge from machine readable information. Unfortunately, their success is usually dependant on the quality of the data that they operate on. If the data is inadequate, or contains extraneous and irrelevant information, machine learning algorithms ..."

Reasoning about beliefs and actions under computational resource constraints
 in Proceedings of the 1989 Workshop on Uncertainty and AI

Although many investigators arm a desire to build reasoning systems that behave consistently with the axiomatic basis dened by probability theory and utility theory, limited resources for engineering and computation can make a complete normative analysis impossible. We attempt to move discussion be ..."
