Consider a propositional formula F in Conjunctive Normal Form (CNF) on a set of Boolean variables {x1, x2, . . . , xn}. Thesatisfiability(SAT) problemconsists in testing whether clauses in F can all be satisfied by some consistent assignment of truth values (1 or 0) to variables. If it is the case, F is saidsatisfiable; otherwise,F is saidunsatisfiable. Let l with or without index be a literal. An equivalency clause of lengthk can be written as l1↔ l2↔ · · ·↔ lk, where operator↔ is commutative… CONTINUE READING
