3.7.86. Dominating queens

A constraint that can be used for modelling the dominating queens problem. Place a number of queens on a n by n chessboard in such a way that all squares are either attacked by a queen or are occupied by a queen. A queen can attack all squares located on the same column, on the same row or on the same diagonal. Values of the minimum number of queens for n less than or equal to 120 are reported in [OstergardWeakley01]. They are in fact all either equal to n+1 2 or to n+1 2+1.
