Abstract in LaTeX format:
We define the \Same\ and \UsedBy\ constraints. \UsedBy\ takes
two sets of variables $X$ and $Z$ such that $|X|\ge |Z|$ and
assigns values to them such that the multiset of values assigned
to the variables in $Z$ is contained in the multiset of values
assigned to the variables in $X$. \Same\ is the special case of
\UsedBy\ in which $|X|=|Z|$.
We show algorithms that achieve arc consistency and bound
consistency for these constraints.
