Abstract : This report combines information from several articles and theses. Those of particular interest are summarized here. 'Planning in an Uncertain and Dynamic Environment with Weak Domain Theory' summarizes the author's research and results in the field of planning in the Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) domain, as well as giving a comprehensive history of CBR and CBP. 'Similarity Measures for Case-Based Planning Systems' focuses on the case retrieval problem and the computation of similarity measures between cases. 'Planning with Dynamic Cases' describes the Case Representation Language (CRL) and the architecture of a Case-Based Planning (CBP) system. 'Representing Cases and Rules in Plausible Reasoning Systems' describes a hybrid system that integrates Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) and Rule-Based Reasoning (RBR) systems. 'Tachyon: A Constraint-Based Temporal Reasoning Model and Its Implementation' provides an overview of the Tachyon temporal's reasoning system and discusses its possible applications. 'Dual-Use Applications of Tachyon: From Force Structure Modeling to Manufacturing Scheduling' discusses the application of Tachyon to real world problems, specifically military force deployment and manufacturing scheduling.
