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

It is not surprising that structures underly many of the problems that we find interesting in planning. However, the planners that we develop are not always capable of acting on them as they increase in size. For example, the errors caused through relaxations in a heuristic can grow quickly when acting on a structure. Macro actions can help to compensate for heuristic error; however, researchers have investigated finite length macro actions limiting the benefit when the underlying problem is an arbitrary sized structure. In this work we design a specific set of arbitrary length macros, providing a vocabulary for acting on structures.
