This equation is part of your program logic, and you cannot change it. However, you could construct a new array M2 that shares some of its elements with M: M = []([](2, 3, 5, X14), [](1, 4, 7, X24)), M2 = []([](2, 3, 5, X14, 34), [](1, 4, 7, X24, 87)). Here, not only are the corresponding numerical elements identical, the variable elements X14 and X24 are also shared, i.e. these variables occur simultaneously in both arrays. A more generic way to do that would be: ?- M = []([](2,3,5,_), [](1,4,7 _)), % example array dim(M2, [2, 5]), % make a larger array share_common_elements(M, M2). % share the overlap M = []([](2, 3, 5, _87), [](1, 4, 7, _102)) M2 = []([](2, 3, 5, _87, _574), [](1, 4, 7, _102, _580)) Yes (0.00s cpu) where share_common_elements/2 is defined as share_common_elements(A1, A2) :- dim(A1, [N1,M1]), dim(A2, [N2,M2]), ( multifor(Index,1,[min(N1,N2),min(M1,M2)]), param(A1,A2) do arg(Index, A1, X), arg(Index, A2, X) ). > The following is the way I need to add the constraint for the array. > > M[1, 4] + M[2, 4] #= 10, > > %Search API to solve the above constraint.. > > and provide solution as > > M = []([](2, 3, 5, 2, 34), [](1, 4, 7, 8, 87)), > > Please let me know if this is possible. Yes, this works exactly as you say: ?- M = []([](2,3,5,_),[](1,4,7,_)), M[1,4]+M[2,4] #= 10, M#::1..7, labeling(M). M = []([](2, 3, 5, 3), [](1, 4, 7, 7)) Yes (0.00s cpu, solution 1, maybe more) M = []([](2, 3, 5, 4), [](1, 4, 7, 6)) Yes (0.02s cpu, solution 2, maybe more) M = []([](2, 3, 5, 5), [](1, 4, 7, 5)) Yes (0.03s cpu, solution 3, maybe more) M = []([](2, 3, 5, 6), [](1, 4, 7, 4)) Yes (0.05s cpu, solution 4, maybe more) M = []([](2, 3, 5, 7), [](1, 4, 7, 3)) Yes (0.05s cpu, solution 5) -- JoachimReceived on Wed Dec 03 2014 - 17:08:19 CET
