Abstract : Abstract In this paper, we propose a qualitative formalism for representing and reasoning about time at different scales. It extends some of the results of Euzenat [1995] and overcomes their major limitations, allowing one to reason about relations between points and intervals. Our approach is more expressive than most algebras of temporal relations : for instance, some relations are more relaxed than those in Allen's [1983] algebra, while others are stricter. In particular, it enables the modeling of imprecise , gradual, or intuitive relations, such as " just before " or " almost meet ". In addition, we give several results about how a relation changes when considered at different granularities. Finally, we provide an algorithm to compute the algebraic closure of a temporal constraint * Ceci est la version française de l'article An Algebra of Gra-nular Temporal Relations for Qualitative Reasoning , ` a paraˆtre dans les actes de la conférence IJCAI 2015. network in our formalism, which can be used to check its consistency.
