Design and Implementation of Aggregate Functions in the DLV System
Cumulated results for Timetabling and Seating are provided in Tables 1 and 2, respectively.
Design and Implementation of Aggregate Functions in the DLV System
For Timetabling we report the execution time and the size of the residual ground instantiation (the total number of atoms occurring in the instantiation, where multiple occurrences of the same atom are counted separately and atoms occurring in the sets of the aggregates are considered, too).
