Solving propositional satisfiability problems
- 250 Downloads
We describe an algorithm for the satisfiability problem of prepositional logic, which is significantly more efficient for this problem than is a general mixed-integer programming code. Our algorithm is a list processor using a tree-search method, and is based on Loveland's form of the algorithm of Davis and Putnam.
