SAT Solver Progress 1960 -2010

Model Checking (CE81,QS82)

- Specification temporal logic
- Model finite state transition graph
- Advantages
- Always terminates
- Automatic
- Usually fast
- Can handle partially specified models
- Counterexample if specification is false

Symbolic Model Checking

- Method used by most industrial strength model

checkers. - Uses Boolean encoding for state machine and sets

of states. - Can handle much larger designs hundreds of

state variables. - BDDs traditionally used to represent Boolean

functions.

Problems with BDDs

- BDDs are a canonical representation. Often become

too large. - Variable ordering must be uniform along paths.
- Selecting right variable ordering very important

for obtaining small BDDs. - Often time consuming or needs manual

intervention. - Sometimes, no space efficient variable ordering

exists. - This talk describes alternative approaches
- to model checking that use SAT procedures.

Advantages of SAT Procedures

- SAT procedures also operate on Boolean formulas

but do not use canonical forms. - Do not suffer from the potential space explosion

of BDDs. - Different split orderings possible on different

branches. - Very efficient implementations exist.

Bounded Model Checking

CT is the completeness threshold

The Completeness Threshold

- Computing CT is as hard as model checking.
- Idea Compute an over-approximation to the actual

CT - Consider system P as a graph.
- Compute CT from structure of P.

Basic notions

- Diameter D(M) longest shortest path between any

two reachable states. - Recurrence Diameter RD(M) longest loop-free

path between any two reachable states. - The initialized versions DI(M) and RDI(M)

start from an initial state.

D(M) 2

RD(M) 3

CT for safety properties

- Theorem for AGp properties CT DI(M)

For AFp properties this does not hold

DI(M)3 but CT4

CT for liveness properties

- Theorem for AFp properties CT RDI(M)1

- Theorem for an LTL property ? CT ?

CT for arbitrary LTL properties

Shortest counterexample

- Theorem CKOS 05
- A Completeness Threshold for any LTL property

? is min(rd I(P )1, d I(P )d (P ))

Why take the minimum?

Example 1

dI(P)d(P) 6 rdI(P)1 4

gt

Example 2

dI(P)d(P) 2 rdI(P)1 4

Formulation of diameter in QBF

Infeasible to compute the diameter using a

poly-time algorithm for shortest paths.

SAT-based Diameter Computation

- M. Mneineh, K. Sakallah,SAT-based Sequential

Depth Computation,ASPDAC03 - Check if there is a state s reachable in c steps

but not reachable in less than c steps. - Increment c, until no state is reachable in c

steps. - May enumerate many states in 1.

Recurrence diameter as SAT

O(nlogn)

O(n)

Complexity of BMC Formula size

- Original translation
- O(kM k2?)
- Automata based translation
- O(kM2? )
- Fixpoint based translation
- O(k(M ?))

Complexity of BMC

- Size of SAT instance is O(k(M ?))
- k can become as large as the diameter of the

system, which is exponential in the number of

state variables in the worst case. - SAT is exponential time.
- Therefore, SAT based BMC has doubly exponential

complexity. - But LTL model checking is singly exponential!

Why use SAT based BMC?

- Infeasible to represent P explicitly.
- Identify shallow errors efficiently.
- In many cases rd(P) and d(P) are not exponential

and can be rather small. - E.g. hardware components without counters
- Modern SAT solvers are very successful in

practice.

SAT based - Image Computation for Reachability Analysis

CMU-CS-03-151

Reachability analysis

- Consider a system with state variables x and

inputs i. - S0(x) is the set of initial states.
- T(x,i,x) is the transition relation.
- We want to compute the set of reachable states

Sreach . - Iterative process Compute the states reachable

in 1 step, 2 steps,

Image computation and Reachability

- The set of immediate successors of states S (x)

is given by - The set of all reachable states is the least

fixpoint

Img(S) 9 x, i. T(x, i, x) Æ S(x)

Computing Reachability

- Si1 is the set of new states directly reachable

from Si - Then Sreach is the union of all Si

SAT based image computation

- The transition relation T(x,i,x) is represented

as a CNF formula (a set of clauses). - If not already in CNF, it can be converted in

polynomial time. - The set of newly reachable states after each step

Si as well as their union Sreach are represented

in DNF (a set of cubes). - Obviously ?Sreach is in CNF.

SAT based image computation

The image computation step

- Si is in DNF
- Convert to CNF by introducing new variables
- Solve the CNF formula
- Si(x) ? T(x,i, x) ? ?Sreach(x)
- Solution is a cube d
- Project d to x and rename to x
- Add d to Sreach(x) and Si1(x)
- Repeat until the formula becomes unsat

Efficiency issues

- The number of satisfying assignments can be

exponential in the number of variables. Therefore

two problems - Enumeration of full assignments is slow.
- Solution Cube enlargement
- The representation of Sreach and Si can grow too

large. - Solution Systematically combine cubes using an

appropriate data structure.

Cube enlargement

- SAT solvers like zChaff return complete

assignments (minterms). - Partial assignments (cubes) are better, because

they represent multiple minterms.

For example, the cube x1 ? x4 represents 4

minterms

x1 ? x2 ? x3 ? x4 x1

? ?x2 ? x3 ? x4 x1 ?

x2 ? ?x3 ? x4 x1 ? ?x2 ?

?x3 ? x4

Efficient cube set representation

- Cubes are stored in a hash table of tries.
- Each trie is associated to a unique subset of

state variables. - Whenever a new cube d is inserted, the

corresponding trie is searched for cubes d that

differ only in one literal. - The merged cube (without the differing literal)

is stored instead of d and d.

Efficient cube set representation

x1, x2

x1, x7 , x8

Hash keys

- New cube x2 ? ?x3 ? ?x4
- Identify appropriate hash table entry
- Look for matching cubes
- If match was found, delete cube and insert merged

Unbounded Model Checking using Circuit

Cofactoring

- M. Ganai, A. Gupta and P. Ashar,
- Efficient SAT-based Unbounded Symbolic Model

Checking Using Circuit Cofactoring, ICCAD 04

SAT-based Image Computation

- The SAT-based procedure enumerates all state cube

solutions. - Each invocation of the SAT solver generates one

new state cube. - A blocking clause representing the negation of

the state cube is added at each step. - The main problem is that the required number of

steps can be very large.

Main Contribution

- Use circuit cofactoring to capture a large set of

states at each enumeration step. - Less enumeration steps
- Use circuit graph simplification to compact the

captured states. - Use a Hybrid Sat Solver that works on both

OR/INVERTER circuits and CNF.

Definitions

- State variables X.
- Input variables U.
- Partial assignment ? XU !0,1 .
- State cube s is the projection of ? on X .
- Input cube u is the projection of ? on U .
- Minterm m is a complete assignment to U extending

u .

Example

- X x1, x2
- U u1, u2
- ? x1 u2
- s x1
- u u2
- m u1 u2

Cofactors of Boolean functions

- Cofactors of f(v1,,v,) with respect to variable

v are fv(v1,,1,), fv(v1,,0,) - Cofactor of f with respect to cube c, is fc
- Obtained by cofactoring f with respect to each

literal in c. - Example

Producing larger sets of states

- Given a formula f and a satisfying assignment

cube s - Isolate the input part of s and complete it by

picking values for unassigned inputs. - Cofactor f with respect to the satisfying input

minterm m. - Use the function f m obtained in 2, to represent

the set of satisfying states.

Example

- u1 and u2 are primary inputs.
- x1 and x2 are state variables.
- We want to compute
- 9 u1u2 f

Example cont

- The SAT solver returns ltu11,x20gt as the first

assignment. - Step 1 Complete the input part of the assignment

by choosing u21 . - Step 2 Cofactor f with respect to the satisfying

input minterm mu1u2. We get

Example cont

- fm represents more states than the satisfying

cube x2 - We needed just one enumeration step to capture

the entire solution set

SAT-based existential quantification

The returned value of C should correspond to 9B

f(A,B)

C , 9B f(A,B)

- C is a union of cofactors of f with respect to B,

therefore - C ) 9B f(A,B)
- When the algorithm terminates
- f(A,B) C is unsat, therefore
- 8B (f(A,B) _ C) is valid
- C contains no variables in B
- 8B (f(A,B)) _ C
- 9 B f(A,B) ) C

Hybrid SAT-solver

- Represents original circuit with 2-input

OR/INVERTOR gates - Represents learned constraints with CNF
- Finds partial satisfying assignments
- Dynamically removes inactive clauses
