Overview of Techniques for Solving the SAT Problem in Propositional Logics

Student name: 
Christian Eder

Propositional Logics are the most fundamental class of logics. Despite their simplicity, they enjoy real industrial interest. Consequently, a good number of SAT solvers has been developed over the last decades, some of which are industrial-strength systems that can cope with problems arising in industrial applications. The huge variety of systems however is implemented on the basis of a smaller number of well-understood algorithm families.
The goal of this project is too survey (a selection of) the various different algorithmic approaches to solve the SAT problem for propositional logics and to compare / relate the selected approaches.
