Deduction Beyond Satisfiability (Dagstuhl Seminar 19371)

dagrep_v009_i009_p023_19371.pdf (3 MB)


Research in automated deduction is traditionally focused on
the problem of determining the satisfiability of formulas
or, more generally, on solving logical problems with yes/no answers.
Thanks to recent advances that have dramatically increased the power
of automated deduction tools, there is now a growing interest
in extending deduction techniques to attack logical problems
with more complex answers.
These include both problems with a long history,
such as quantifier elimination,
which are now being revisited in light of the new methods,
as well as newer problems such as
minimal unsatisfiable cores computation,
model counting
for propositional or first-order formulas,
Boolean or SMT constraint optimization,
generation of interpolants,
abductive reasoning, and
syntax-guided synthesis.
Such problems arise in a variety of applications including
the analysis of probabilistic systems
(where properties like safety or liveness can be established
only probabilistically),
network verification (with relies on model counting),
the computation of tight complexity bounds for programs,
program synthesis, model checking (where interpolation or
abductive reasoning can be used to achieve scale), and
ontology-based information processing.
The seminar brought together researchers and practitioners from many of the often disjoint sub-communities
interested in the problems above.
The unifying theme of the seminar was how to harness and extend
the power of automated deduction methods to solve problems
with more complex answers than binary ones.
