Techniques in Qualitative Reasoning

This section presents an overview of the reasoning techniques which have been employed in qualitative reasoning systems. There are a few central methods which are employed in almost all qualitative reasoning systems, while others are applicable only to certain types of problem. I have distinguished between these cases, and also note which methods are particularly relevant to spatial reasoning.
