Dear Christian,

some time ago I wrote an implementation of a dual constraint; I am
sending it as an attachment. Sorry, the comments are in Italian.

Basically, you have to state that each variable of the primal CSP takes
one value.

Variables in the dual CSP represent allowed tuples in the (primal)
constraint. In your example, V1 corresponds to a constraint c1:
X1+X2+X6#=1, and thus V1 can take the value (0,0,1), which satisfies the
constraint c1. This means that you can assign X1=0, X2=0, X6=1 and c1 is
satisfied. Same for V2, that corresponds to the constraint c2: X1-X3+X4
#= 1.

Now, you have to state that variable X1 takes the same value in both
constraints c1 and c2, i.e., that the first element in the tuple
assigned to V1 is equal to the first element in the tuple assigned to
V2. In order to impose this condition, you can use the (attached) constraint

dual_ac(V1,1,V2,1)

So, considering only the first two variables V1 and V2:

[eclipse 2]: [V1]::[(0,0,1),(0,1,0),(1,0,0)],
[V2]::[(0,0,1),(1,0,0),(1,1,1)],
dual_ac(V1,1,V2,1).

V1 = V1{[(0, 0, 1), (0, 1, 0), (1, 0, 0)]}
V2 = V2{[(0, 0, 1), (1, 0, 0), (1, 1, 1)]}

Delayed goals:
dual_ac(V1{[(0, 0, 1), (0, 1, 0), (1, 0, 0)]}, 1, V2{[(0, 0,
1), (1, 0, 0), (1, 1, 1)]}, 1)
Yes (0.00s cpu)
[eclipse 3]: [V1]::[(0,0,1),(0,1,0),(1,0,0)],
[V2]::[(0,0,1),(1,0,0),(1,1,1)],
dual_ac(V1,1,V2,1), labeling([V1,V2]).

V1 = 0, 0, 1
V2 = 0, 0, 1
Yes (0.00s cpu, solution 1, maybe more) ? ;

V1 = 0, 1, 0
V2 = 0, 0, 1
Yes (0.00s cpu, solution 2, maybe more) ? ;

V1 = 1, 0, 0
V2 = 1, 0, 0
Yes (0.00s cpu, solution 3, maybe more) ? ;

V1 = 1, 0, 0
V2 = 1, 1, 1
Yes (0.00s cpu, solution 4)

Cheers,
Marco
