A Generative Expert System for the Design of Building Layouts
Each representation is an abstraction since it supresses certain properties of the solution it describes. Different solutions can therefore have the same representation, and each representation consequently describes not a single solution, but an entire class or subset of solutions. Under a suitably selected representation, the (possibly infinite) set of solutions is divided into a finite set of subsets which can be enumerated by generating all well-formed representations as objects.
