Structure identification of Boolean relations and plain bases for co-clones

Nadia Creignou, Phokion Kolaitis, Bruno Zanuttini
2008 Journal of computer and system sciences (Print)  
Our algorithm is derived by first introducing the concept of a plain basis for a co-clone and then identifying natural plain bases for every co-clone in Post's lattice.  ...  We give a quadratic algorithm for the following structure identification problem: given a Boolean relation R and a finite set S of Boolean relations, can the relation R be expressed as a conjunctive query  ...  A (Boolean) clone is a set of Boolean functions closed under composition and containing all projections functions.  ...

Weak Bases of Boolean Co-Clones [article]

Victor Lagerkvist
2013 arXiv   pre-print
In this article we consider strong partial clones which can be seen as a more fine-grained framework than Post's lattice where each clone splits into an interval of strong partial clones.  ...  Universal algebra and clone theory have proven to be a useful tool in the study of constraint satisfaction problems since the complexity, up to logspace reductions, is determined by the set of polymorphisms  ...  Acknowledgements The author is grateful towards Peter Jonsson, Gustav Nordh and Bruno Zanuttini for helpful comments and suggestions.  ...
