PSE Research at Virginia Tech: An Overview
The purpose of this report is to give an overview of the activities of the research group in problem solving environments (PSEs) at Virginia Tech. Most of the report is devoted to an introduction to the area itself, with particular emphasis on our perspective and goals. After a brief attempt at defining the term PSE, we consider individually the three key words: problem: what problem domains are we addressing? solving: what characterizes the solution process? environment: what should the computational environment include? The final section summarize our current specific interests. For more information about PSE research at Virginia Tech, please visit our home page at www.cs.vt.edu/~pse.
