Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Symmetries arise in planning in a variety of ways. This paper describes the ways that symmetry aises most naturally in planning problems and reviews the approaches that have been applied to exploitation of symmetry in order to reduce search for plans. It then introduces some extensions to the use of symmetry in planning before moving on to consider how the exploitation of symmetry in planning might be generalised to offer new approaches to exploitation of symmetry in other combinatorial search problems.
