The concept of planning occurs in a variety of academic contexts and forms, not least in the cognitive psychology of problem solving and in computing science. Although disparate theoretical contexts may be an obstacle to defining the invariants of planning, they become a rich resource when the aim is to provide a description of its general properties. As the cognitve sciences pool resources from psychology to artificial intelligence, reflections on common concepts becomes a necessity.The aim of this book is to furnish a theoretical framework for current planning research in both cognitive psychology and artificial intelligence. It is unique in its integrated and interdisciplinary perspective and is a useful asset to those working in psychology, artificial intelligence, cognitive ergonomics, human-computer interaction, and related disciplines.
