A Framework for the Specification of Random SAT and QSAT Formulas [chapter]

Nadia Creignou, Uwe Egly, Martina Seidl
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We present the framework [q]bfGen which allows the declarative specification of random models for generating SAT and QSAT formulas not necessarily in (prenex) conjunctive normal form.  ...  Consequently, the implementation of specific random formula generators becomes obsolete, because our framework subsumes their functionality.  ...  Conclusion and Future Work We introduced the framework [q]bfGen which provides a language for specifying SAT and QSAT random models and a formula generator which interprets such specifications and which  ...

Traceability Analyses between Features and Assets in Software Product Lines

Ganesh Narwane, José Galindo, Shankara Krishna, David Benavides, Jean-Vivien Millo, S. Ramesh
2016 Entropy  
In a Software Product Line (SPL), the central notion of implementability provides the requisite connection between specifications and their implementations, leading to the definition of products.  ...  The methodology scales much better than the SAT-based solutions hinted in the literature and were demonstrated through a tool called SPLAnE (SPL Analysis Engine) on a large set of SPL models.  ...  Author Contributions: Ganesh Khandu Narwane is responsible for writing the formal framework for SPL.  ...

Exact finite-state machine identification from scenarios and temporal properties

Vladimir Ulyantsev, Igor Buzhinsky, Anatoly Shalyto
2016 International Journal on Software Tools for Technology Transfer (STTT)  
This paper presents four exact methods to tackle the problem of minimum FSM identification from a set of test scenarios and a temporal specification represented in linear temporal logic.  ...  The methods are implemented as an open-source tool. Three of them are based on translations of the FSM identification problem to SAT or QSAT problem instances.  ...  The second type of specification is a set of LTL formulae. An FSM complies with an LTL formula, if the formula holds for each possible execution of the FSM.  ...

Algorithms for Quantified Constraint Satisfaction Problems [chapter]

Nikos Mamoulis, Kostas Stergiou
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Many propagation and search algorithms have been developed for constraint satisfaction problems (CSPs). In a standard CSP all variables are existentially quantified.  ...  We also show how the notion of value interchangeability can be exploited to break symmetries and speed up search by orders of magnitude.  ...  Acknowledgements Kostas Stergiou is a member of the APES research group and would like to thank all other members. We especially thank I. Gent, P. Nightingale, and A. Rowley.  ...

Adversarial satisfiability problem

Michele Castellana, Lenka Zdeborová
2011 Journal of Statistical Mechanics: Theory and Experiment  
We also conduct a numerical study of the problem, and find that there are very strong pre-asymptotic effects that are due to the fact that for small sizes exponential and factorial growth is hardly distinguishable  ...  This is one case of a general class of adversarial optimization problems that often arise in practice and are algorithmically much harder than the standard optimization problems.  ...  comments about a preliminary version of the manuscript.  ...

Model Checking Firewall Policy Configurations

Alan Jeffrey, Taghrid Samak
2009 2009 IEEE International Symposium on Policies for Distributed Systems and Networks  
BDDs are a rich data structure, supporting more logical operations than just solving boolean formulae. Typically, search algorithms for boolean satisfiability (so-called SAT-solvers) outperform BDDs.  ...  To mitigate this problem, there has been recent interest in the use of model checking techniques for analyzing the behavior of firewall policy configurations, and reporting anomalies.  ...  Satisfiability of quantified boolean formulae (QSAT) is the canonical PSPACE-complete problem, in the same way that satisfiability of boolean formulae (SAT) is the canonical 1 Quantified boolean formulae  ...

Responsibility and verification: Importance value in temporal logics [article]

Corto Mascle, Christel Baier, Florian Funke, Simon Jantsch, Stefan Kiefer
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We study this idea in the framework of model-checking with various classical types of linear-time specification, and propose several ways to transpose it to branching ones.  ...  We aim at measuring the influence of the nondeterministic choices of a part of a system on its ability to satisfy a specification.  ...  We will now prove that the QSAT formula is valid if and only if state s is useful. Suppose the QSAT formula is valid, let T = {c i | Q i = ∃}.  ...

Hence, QBFs provide an attractive framework for encoding many applications from verification, artificial intelligence, and synthesis, thus motivating the quest for efficient solving technology.  ...  In the same way as the satisfiability problem of propositional logic is the archetypical problem for NP, the satisfiability problem of QBFs is the archetypical problem for PSPACE.  ...  A natural extension of SAT is QSAT, the satisfiability problem of quantified Boolean formulas (QBFs) [32, 47] .  ...

Model-Based Testing for Verification Back-Ends [chapter]

Cyrille Artho, Armin Biere, Martina Seidl
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We applied this approach to our SAT solver Lingeling and compared it to existing testing approaches, revealing the effectiveness of MBT for the development of reliable SAT solvers.  ...  Many verification tools used in practice rely on sophisticated SAT and SMT solvers. These reasoning engines are assumed and expected to be correct, but, in general, too complex to be fully verified.  ...  It increased the efficiency and productivity of our development process considerably, and particularly allowed us to produce much more complex code.  ...
