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.
