In this paper, we introduce general techniques for extending classes of polynomially solvable SAT instances. We generalize the approach of Gallo and Scutellà, who defined the hierarchy {Γ i }, where Γl corresponds to the Generalized Horn class. We propose a family of polynomial hierarchies, where a polynomial hierarchy {Π i } is a sequence of polynomially solvable classes that cover the whole set of CNF formulas, and such that Π i ∩ Π i+1 fori≥0. Following a different approach, based on a new… CONTINUE READING
