# Cardinality constraints [Using finite domain integers]

Collaboration diagram for Cardinality constraints:

## Detailed Description

Note:
Domain consistency on the extended cardinality variables of the Global Cardinality Propagator is only obtained if they are bounds consistent, otherwise the problem of enforcing domain consistency on the cardinality variables is NP-complete as proved by Qumiper et. al. in Improved Algorithms for the Global Cardinality Constraint"

Supports value (icl = ICL_VAL, default), bounds (icl = ICL_BND), and domain-consistency (icl = ICL_DOM).

Exceptions:
 Int::ArgumentSame thrown if x contains shared variables.
Parameters:
 x variables on which to perform propagation c specifying cardinality information as shown below m denotes the size of c unspec_low denotes the lower bound for those values not specified in c unspec_up denotes the upper bound for those values not specified in c min smallest domain value of x max largest domain value of x icl consistency level
Let and the set of values represented by c. Then this progator allows sets as well as .

In this interface values and their cardinality bounds have to specified such that c looks as follows (for example): , where the value 1 may occur zero times or once, the value 2 must occur at least once at most three times and the value 10 must occur at least 4 times and at most 5 times.

Furthermore, this interface requires that .
