iDQ: Instantiation-Based DQBF Solving

14 pagesPublished: July 28, 2014


Dependency Quantified Boolean Formulas (DQBF) are obtained by adding Henkin quantifiers to Boolean formulas and have seen growing interest in the last years. Since deciding DQBF is NEXPTIME-complete, efficient ways of solving it would have many practical applications. Still, there is only few work on solving this kind of formulas in practice. In this paper, we present an instantiation-based technique to solve DQBF efficiently. Apart from providing a theoretical foundation, we also propose a concrete implementation of our algorithm. Finally, we give a detailed experimental analysis evaluating our prototype iDQ on several DQBF as well as QBF benchmarks.
