Complexity classification in qualitative temporal constraint reasoning.

Jonsson, P. and Krokhin, A. (2004) 'Complexity classification in qualitative temporal constraint reasoning.', Artificial Intelligence., 160 (1-2). pp. 35-51.


We study the computational complexity of the qualitative algebra which is a temporal constraint formalism that combines the point algebra, the point-interval algebra and Allen's interval algebra. We identify all tractable fragments and show that every other fragment is NP-complete.
