Titre : Solving Stochastic Boolean Satisfiability of Formulas with Two Quantification Levels

Speaker :
Jie-Hong Roland Jiang, National Taiwan University

Abstract :
Stochastic Boolean Satisfiability (SSAT) is a powerful formalism to represent computational problems with uncertainty, such as belief network inference, probabilistic planning, posteriori hypothesis, maximum expected utility, etc. Solving SSAT formulas lies in the PSPACE-complete complexity class same as solving Quantified Boolean Formulas (QBFs). While many endeavors have been made to enhance QBF solving in recent years, SSAT has drawn relatively less attention. In this seminar, we examine the special classes of SSAT formulas with two quantification levels. By combining SAT, QBF, and model counting techniques, we develop SSAT solvers with distinct advantages.

(This seminar is based on the joint work with Nian-Ze Lee and Yen-Shi Wang published in IJCAI 2017 and 2018.)
