Optimal Base Encodings for Pseudo-Boolean Constraints

  title={Optimal Base Encodings for Pseudo-Boolean Constraints},
  author={Michael Codish and Yoav Fekete and Carsten Fuhs and Peter Schneider-Kamp},
This paper formalizes the optimal base problem, presents an algorithm to solve it, and describes its application to the encoding of Pseudo-Boolean constraints to SAT. We demonstrate the impact of integrating our algorithm within the Pseudo-Boolean constraint solver MiniSat. Experimentation indicates that our algorithm scales to bases involving numbers up to 1,000,000, improving on the restriction in MiniSat to prime numbers up to 17. We show that, while for many examples primes up to 17 do… CONTINUE READING
