Abstract

In this paper, we propose an OBDD-based algorithm called greedy clique decomposition, which is a new variable grouping heuristic method, to solve difficult SAT problems. We implement our algorithm and compare it with several state-of-art SAT solvers including Minisat, Ebddres and TTS. We show that with this new heuristic method, our implementation of an OBDD-based satisfiability solver can perform better for selected difficult SAT problems, whose conflict graphs possess a clique-like structure.
