Systems of set constraints describe relations between sets of ground
terms; they have the form of inclusions between set expressions built
over a set of set-valued variables, constants and function symbols.
Set constraints have been successfully used in program analysis and
type inference algorithms for functional, imperative and logic
programming languages by a number of researchers. Solving a system of
set constraints is the main part of these algorithms.
The satisfiability problem for such constraints was studied by many
researchers. The complexity of these problems has also been considered.
In my talk, I shall give some hints of how set constraints can be
applied and shall provide the main ideas behind the decidability and
complexity results. Finally I shall mention recent applications to
