On the Approximability of Weighted Model Integration on DNF Structures

02/17/2020 ∙ by Ralph Abboud, et al. ∙ 0

Weighted model counting admits an FPRAS on DNF structures. We study weighted model integration, which is a generalization of weighted model counting, and pose the following question: Does weighted model integration on DNF structures admit an FPRAS? Building on classical results, we show that this problem can indeed be approximated for a class of weight functions. Our approximation algorithm is based on three subroutines, each of which can be a weak (i.e., approximate), or a strong (i.e., exact) oracle, and in all cases, comes along with accuracy guarantees. We experimentally verify our approach, and show that our algorithm scales to large problem instances, which are currently out of reach for existing, general-purpose weighted model integration solvers.
