Background

This chapter aims to show:
  • that you understand what the problem is
  • that you are aware of the current state-of-the-art
  • that you can analyse and critique others' work
  • that there is an unsolved problem to be investigated
The chapter structure follows roughly these goals
  • describe the problem in detail, all issues/aspects
  • develop an approach for determining a "good" solution
  • describe and analyse previous work   (using this approach)
  • conclude that some aspect of the problem is not yet solved
