## LM-cut landmark constraints

Computes a set of landmarks in each state using the LM-cut method. For each landmark L the constraint sum_{o in L} Count_o >= 1 is added to the operator counting LP temporarily. After the heuristic value for the state is computed, all temporary constraints are removed again. For details, see

## Posthoc optimization constraints

The generator will compute a PDB for each pattern and add the constraint h(s) <= sum_{o in relevant(h)} Count_o. For details, see

## State equation constraints

For each fact, a permanent constraint is added that considers the net change of the fact, i.e., the total number of times the fact is added minus the total number of times is removed. The bounds of each constraint depend on the current state and the goal state and are updated in each state. For details, see
