From Classic Computer Science Problems in Python by David Kopec
A large number of problems which computational tools solve can be broadly categorized as constraint-satisfaction problems (CSPs). CSPs are composed of variables with possible values which fall into ranges known as domains. Constraints between the variables must be satisfied in order for constraint-satisfaction problems to be solved. Those three core concepts—variables, domains, and constraints—are simple to understand, and their generality underlies the wide applicabilit
Six questions with Naomi Ceder, author of The Quick Python Book, Third Edition.
