Exponential example for simplex used in SMT solvers

The original simplex algorithm requires an exponential number of pivot operations in the worst case, e.g., if run on the Klee-Minty example [3,4]. What about the simplex algorithm used in SMT solvers ...

Introduction to bounded model checking that describes model generation

Most of the tutorials I have found on model checking and bounded model checking start with, the model is given as a Kripke Structure M = (S,I,T,L) where S is a set of states, I is a set of initial ...

How the $EX(f)$ is evaluated in symbolic model checking?

I was reading the symbolic model checking, So there it has mentioned that we can represent the set of states and transition relations of any transition system with the help of ROBDDs. I was trying to ...

Passing arrays vs functions as arguments in SMT?

In SAT Modulo Theories (SMT), with the theory of uninterpreted functions, all functions are first order, that is, they don't take functions as arguments or return functions. In the theory of arrays, ...

General Understanding of SMT Solving Across Multiple Theories

My first question was a little too simplified in that it turned out to be an integer linear programming problem solvable with the Simplex Method. However, what I think I am wondering about is how to ...

Program synthesis based on function properties

I am fairly new at program synthesis and the use of SMT solvers for this purpose. Given a function g, I want to generate all the functions f and h such that the following holds: f . g = h . f Are ...

When to use SAT vs solving?

Are there any guidelines for how to recognize, for a given problem, which approach is more likely to yield good results? SAT solver or SMT solver? Is there any guidance anyone can offer about which ...
