Introduction to Mathematics of Satisfiability (Chapman & by Victor W. Marek

By Victor W. Marek

Although this quarter has a background of over eighty years, it was once no longer till the production of effective SAT solvers within the mid-1990s that it grew to become essentially vital, discovering purposes in digital layout automation, and software program verification, combinatorial optimization, and extra. Exploring the theoretical and useful features of satisfiability, Introduction to arithmetic of Satisfiability specializes in the satisfiability of theories inclusive of propositional good judgment formulation. It describes how SAT solvers and methods are utilized to difficulties in arithmetic and laptop technological know-how in addition to vital functions in machine engineering.

The ebook first offers with good judgment basics, together with the syntax of propositional good judgment, entire units of functors, common varieties, the Craig lemma, and compactness. It then examines clauses, their facts conception and semantics, and uncomplicated complexity problems with propositional good judgment. the ultimate chapters on wisdom illustration conceal finite runs of Turing machines and encodings into SAT. one of many pioneers of resolution set programming, the writer exhibits how constraint delight platforms could be labored out by way of satisfiability solvers and the way resolution set programming can be utilized for wisdom representation.
