Satisfiability of real-world Sat instances can be often decided by focusing on a particular subset of variables - a so-called Backdoor Set. In this paper we suggest two algorithms to compute Renameable Horn deletion backdoors. Both methods are based on the idea to transform the computation into a graph problem. This approach could be used as a preprocessing to solve hard real-world Sat instances. We also give some experimental results of the computations of Renameable Horn backdoors for several real-world instances.
