Seminar: Satisfiability Checking

(S2, WS 2009/2010)

LuFG Informatik II


Prof. Dr. Erika Ábrahám, Prof. Dr. Jürgen Giesl, Xin Chen, Fabian Emmes, Carsten Fuhs, Nils Jansen, Ulrich Loup, Carsten Otto


The focus of this seminar is automatic satisfiability checking of formulae. Here we consider several logics, e.g., pure propositional logic, but also extensions like quantified boolean formulae or SAT modulo theories. We will discuss both techniques for efficient satisfiability checking and practical applications in program verification.


The seminar will take place at the end of the lecture period in February 2010. We have the following deadlines:


Your seminar paper should have 10 - 15 pages and be written in either English or German. With this number of pages, there should not be any index or table of contents. Nevertheless, you should give a list of your references. If there are more than ten grammatical or spelling mistakes on a single page, the review of your paper will be aborted, and it will be returned to you immediately (please use an automated spell checker!).
