Optimized solvers for the Boolean Satisfiability (SAT) found many applications in areas such as hardware and software verification, FPGA routing, planning in AI, etc. Further uses are complicated by the need to express " counting constraints " in conjunctive normal form (CNF). Expressing such constraints by pure CNF leads to more complex SAT instances.(More)
Research in algorithms for Boolean satisfiability (SAT) and their implementations [45, 41, 10] has recently outpaced benchmarking efforts. Most of the classic DIMACS benchmarks [21] can now be solved in seconds on commodity PCs. More recent benchmarks [54] take longer to solve due of their large size, but are still solved in minutes. Yet, small and(More)
Boolean satisfiability (SAT) solvers have experienced dramatic improvements in their performance and scalability over the last several years [5, 7] and are now routinely used in diverse EDA applications. Nevertheless, a number of practical SAT instances remain difficult to solve [9] and continue to defy even the best available SAT solvers [5, 7]. Recent(More)
Given a Boolean satisfiability (Sat) problem whose variables have non-negative weights, the minimum-cost satisfiability (MinCostSat) problem finds a satisfying truth assignment that minimizes a weighted sum of the truth values of the variables. Many NP-optimization problems are either special cases of MinCostSat or can be transformed into MinCostSat(More)
Many popular algorithms that work with Boolean functions are dramatically dependent on the order of variables in input representations of Boolean functions. Such algorithms include satisfiability (SAT) solvers that are critical in formal verification and Binary Decision Diagrams (BDDs) manipulation algorithms that are increasingly popular in synthesis and(More)
— The paper evaluates the security status of Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN) used by residents and companies in two major cities of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The goal is to study the security vulnerabilities that lie beneath the usage of WLAN by the public in UAE. Data will be collected from various populated sites and will be analyzed to better(More)

The increasing popularity of SAT and BDD techniques in verification and synthesis encourages the search for additional speed-ups. Since typical SAT and BDD algorithms are exponential in the worst-case, the structure of real-world instances is a natural source of improvements. While SAT and BDD techniques are often presented as mutually exclusive(More)
