Verifying hardware in its software context

Kurshan, Levin, Minea, Peled, Yenigun
1997 Proceedings of IEEE International Conference on Computer Aided Design (ICCAD) ICCAD-97  
Thus, independent of the interface verification problem, this gives a general method for combining partial order reduction with symbolic model-checking.  ...  Our methodology incorporates partial order reduction on the software side, and localization reduction, to deal with the computational complexity of the verification.  ...  In particular, this gives a method for combining partial order reduction with symbolic search.  ...

Present and Future of Practical SAT Solving [chapter]

Oliver Kullmann
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
A general "modern" scheme for DPLL algorithms is presented, which allows natural representations for "modern" solvers of these two types.  ...  We review current SAT solving, concentrating on the two paradigms of conflict-driven and look-ahead solvers, and with a view towards the unification of these two paradigms.  ...  The three main paradigms for SAT solving, "conflict-driven", "look-ahead" and "local search" should be combined (in a new, intelligent way). 2.  ...

Hybrid CSP Solving [chapter]

Eric Monfroy, Frédéric Saubion, Tony Lambert
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This framework is used for the hybridization of local search and constraint propagation, and for the integration of genetic algorithms and constraint propagation.  ...  We develop a theoretical model based on chaotic iterations in which hybrid resolution can be achieved as the computation of a fixpoint of elementary functions.  ...  We would like to thank the program committee who gave us the opportunity of writing this paper and more especcially Christophe Ringeissen for his interesting remarks and useful comments.  ...

A comparative analysis of partial order planning and task reduction planning

Subbarao Kambhampati
1995 ACM SIGART Bulletin  
In this paper I will describe a generalized algorithm template for partial order planning based on refinement search, and extend it to cover HTN planning.  ...  Although task reduction (HTN) planning historically preceded partial order (PO) planning, and is believed to be more general than the latter, very little comparative analysis of the two planning formalisms  ...  Section 2, reviews the refinement search based semantics for partial order planning, and describes Refine-plan-PO, a generalized algorithm for partial order planning.  ...

On Hybridization of Local Search and Constraint Propagation [chapter]

Eric Monfroy, Frédéric Saubion, Tony Lambert
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we propose a theoretical model based on K.R. Apt's chaotic iterations for hybridization of local search and constraint propagation.  ...  Hybrid resolution can be achieved as the computation of a fixpoint of some specific reduction functions. Our framework opens up new and finer possibilities for hybridization/combination strategies.  ...  The authors are grateful to Willem Jan van Hoeve for the interesting remarks he made on a preliminary version of this paper and to the anonymous referees for their useful comments.  ...

Off the Trail: Re-examining the CDCL Algorithm [chapter]

Alexandra Goultiaeva, Fahiem Bacchus
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In the new formulation of CDCL as local search, the trail no longer plays a central role in the algorithm.  ...  We show that the standard formulation of CDCL as a backtracking search algorithm and our new formulation of CDCL as a local search algorithm are equivalent, up to tie breaking.  ...  5 v ← pickVar(I) 6 flip(v) 7 end 8 end 9 return true Local Search Algorithm 2 presents a generic local search algorithm.  ...

A Parallel Divide-and-Conquer based Evolutionary Algorithm for Large-scale Optimization [article]

Peng Yang, Ke Tang, Xin Yao
2018 arXiv   pre-print
As a powerful optimization tool for many real-world applications, evolutionary algorithms (EAs) fail to solve the emerging large-scale problems both effectively and efficiently.  ...  In this paper, we propose a novel Divide-and-Conquer (DC) based EA that can not only produce high-quality solution by solving sub-problems separately, but also highly utilizes the power of parallel computing  ...  In the t-th iteration (t < T ), a new populationX t will be first generated based on the last population X t via some specific randomized search operators, and then the candidate solutionsx t in the new  ...
