Constrained programming is a powerful model for solving harmonic research problems that rely on a wide range of technologies from artificial intelligence, computer science, databases, programming languages, and process research. Restricted programming is currently successfully applied to many areas, such as scheduling, planning, vehicle orientation, configuration, networks, and bioinformatics. The purpose of this booklet is to identify the full scope and depth of the field of enrollment programming and to be encyclopedic in its scope and coverage. Although there are many excellent books on restrictive programming, these books necessarily focus on key concepts and techniques and also cannot cover extensions, applications, and languages. 

The brochure provides a reasonably complete coverage of all these lines of action, based on restricted programming, so that the reader can have a fairly accurate idea of ​​the entire field and its potential. Of course, every business line is treated in a survey-like manner, as some details may be ignored in favor of coverage. However, the extensive references for each chapter will help interested readers find suitable sources for the missing details. 

The purpose of each chapter is to be a self-survey of a topic, written by one or more of the leading researchers in the region. 

The intended audience of the booklet is researchers, graduate students, undergraduate students and practitioners who want to learn about the latest technologies in restricted programming.

No prior knowledge of the field is required in order to read the chapters and gather useful knowledge.
 Researchers from other fields should find in this booklet an effective way to learn about restricted programming and perhaps use some of the concepts and techniques of restricted programming in their work, thus providing a means for fruitful cross-fertilization between different areas of research. 

The guide is divided into two parts. Part one covers the basic foundations of constraint programming, including history, the concept of constraint constraint, basic research methods, global constraints, traceability and computational complexity, and important issues in modeling a problem as a constraint problem. The second part covers the constraint and solution languages, many useful additions to the base framework (such as separator restrictions, structured fields, distributed CSP providers), and successful application fields for constraint programming.
