> 中文摘要: 提出了一种将布尔公式划分为子句组来进行布尔可满足性判定的方法.CNF(conjunctive normal form)公式是可满足的当且仅当划分产生的每个子句组都是可满足的,因此,通过判定子句组的可满足性来判定原公式的可满足性,相当于用分治法将复杂问题分解为多个子问题来求解.这种分治判定方法一方面降低了原公式的可满足性判定复杂度;另一方面,由于子句组的判定可以并行,因而判定速度能够得到进一步的提高.对于不能直接产生布尔子句组划分的情形,提出了一种利用聚类技术将CNF公式聚类成多个簇,然后消去簇间的公共变量来产生子句组划分的方法.

Abstract:A partition based Boolean satisfiability solving method is proposed. By partitioning a CNF(conjunctive normal form) formula into several clause groups, Boolean satisfiability problem can be divided into small sub-problems, hence reducing the complexity of the original problem. Meanwhile, the satisfiability of different clause group can be solved in parallel, thus further speeding up the decision procedure. For the formula that clause group partition cannot be generated directly, a clustering algorithm is given to cluster clauses into clusters so that clause group partition can be generated by eliminating common variables among clusters.
