<p>Structured matching is a task-specific technique for selecting one choice out of a small number of alternatives based on a given set of parameters. In structured matching, the knowledge and control for making a decision are integrated within a hierarchical structure. Each node in the hierarchy corresponds to a different aspect of the decision and contains knowledge for directly mapping the results of its children nodes (or selected parameters) into a choice on the subdecision. The root node selects the final choice for the decision. The authors formally characterize the task and strategy of structured matching and analyze its computational complexity. They believe that structured matching captures the essence of what makes a range of decision-making problems computationally feasible to solve.</p>
