Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

The problem of general purpose planning is vast in terms of variety of domain. PDDL currently represents a subset of all possible domains. One type of domain that may be interesting to include under PDDL are those domains in which actions examine or update more of the current state. That is, in order to update a state, a complicated examination and update occurs each time an action is simulated. Apollo 13 is a new domain in which the whole current state must be considered in order to determine the next state. This kind of domain raises interesting questions about how best to represent these domains and the affect they might have on the language. One solution to the representation problem is for PDDL to support a foreign function interface.
