On Enumerating Short Projected Models

by   Sibylle Möhle, et al.

Propositional model enumeration, or All-SAT, is the task to record all models of a propositional formula. It is a key task in software and hardware verification, system engineering, and predicate abstraction, to mention a few. It also provides a means to convert a CNF formula into DNF, which is relevant in circuit design. While in some applications enumerating models multiple times causes no harm, in others avoiding repetitions is crucial. We therefore present two model enumeration algorithms, which adopt dual reasoning in order to shorten the found models. The first method enumerates pairwise contradicting models. Repetitions are avoided by the use of so-called blocking clauses, for which we provide a dual encoding. In our second approach we relax the uniqueness constraint. We present an adaptation of the standard conflict-driven clause learning procedure to support model enumeration without blocking clauses.Our procedures are expressed by means of a calculus and proofs of correctness are provided.
