This e-book constitutes the refereed lawsuits of the ninth overseas Symposium on practical and common sense Programming, FLOPS 2008, held in Ise, Japan, in April 2008.

The 20 revised complete papers offered including three invited contributions have been rigorously reviewed and chosen from fifty nine submissions. The papers are geared up in topical sections on constraints, optimistic mathematics, based varieties, rewriting, software transformation, good judgment and lambda-calculus, forms, and debugging.

**Technologically Enhanced Natural Radiation**

This e-book on TENR discusses the fundamental Physics and Chemistry ideas of natural radiation. the present wisdom of the organic results of usual radiation is summarized. a wide selection of issues, from cosmic radiation to atmospheric, terrestrial and aquatic radiation is addressed, together with radon, thoron, and depleted uranium.

This e-book constitutes the complaints of the thirteenth overseas Workshop on Computational common sense in Multi-Agent structures, CLIMA XIII, held in Montpellier, France, in August 2012. The eleven commonplace papers have been rigorously reviewed and chosen from 27 submissions and offered with 3 invited papers. the aim of the CLIMA workshops is to supply a discussion board for discussing suggestions, in keeping with computational common sense, for representing, programming and reasoning approximately brokers and multi-agent platforms in a proper manner.

This booklet constitutes the completely refereed post-conference court cases of the eighth foreign Workshop on Computational good judgment for Multi-Agent structures, CLIMA VIII, held in Porto, Portugal, in September 2007 - co-located with ICLP 2008, the foreign convention on common sense Programming. The 14 revised complete technical papers and 1 approach description paper awarded including 1 invited paper have been rigorously chosen from 33 submissions and went via at the least rounds of reviewing and development.

The e-book '. .. can be guaranteed of the eye of the numerous on each side of the Atlantic who're fascinated about this topic. ' John Hick

Suppose we would like to schedule an action a such that it occurs either between 3am and 5am or between 7am and 8am. To represent this restriction, we would require a constraint of the form, if action ‘a’ occurs at step S and step S occurs at time T , then T cannot be outside intervals [3-5] or [7-8]. We cannot represent this directly in AC 0 . Instead we introduce two r-atoms int1 and int2 to represent intervals [3-5] and [7-8] respectively. The r-atom int1 denotes that action a occurs in interval [3-5].

For rules with a dynamic priority, this is obviously not always the case. Example 5. Consider the rule X+Y :: r @ a(X,Z) \ b(Y,Z), c(X,Y) <=> d(X). 2 3 The Schedule transition corresponds to the Activate transition in ωr . We use the notation c#i @ {p1 , . . , pn } to denote {c#i @ p1 , . . , c#i @ pn }. 38 L. J. J. Duck In this rule the c/2 constraint with ground arguments X and Y knows the priority of the rule, but neither the a/2 nor the b/2 constraints do. Given the a/2 constraint, we need to combine (join) it with either the b/2 or c/2 constraint to determine the actual priority.

We have already shown how this aﬀects the leq benchmark. Similarly, it also aﬀects the sudoku benchmark which has (amongst others) 11% more rule ﬁrings, hence the increase in runtime. Moreover, late indexing only reduces the amount of index insertions by 3% in this benchmark. Leuven CHR system under the ωr semantics. For leq, loop and union-find, we execute the same code ignoring priorities (though sometimes relying on rule order). Leuven CHR code encodes equivalent behavior obtained using priorities by other methods.
