A Grounder From Second-Order Logic To QBF

EasyChair Preprint no. 392

4 pagesPublished: August 2, 2018


Recent solver research has developed powerful QBF solvers. Alas, we know of few tools that provide a modelling language on a higher level, translating this to QBF. This is surprising, as in the closely related field of SAT solvers, research has gone hand in hand with the develop- ment of such systems. This extended abstract on work in progress reports on a system that allows the use of second-order logic as a high-level modelling language and that grounds (translates) models written in such a language to a QBF formula. We provide an example encoding, outline the grounding process and propose further research and experiments.

Keyphrases: grounding, modelling languages, QBF, QDimacs, second-order logic
