MPIDepQBF

MPIDepQBF: Towards parallel QBF solving without knowledge sharing. Inspired by recent work on parallel SAT solving, we present a lightweight approach for solving quantified Boolean formulas (QBFs) in parallel. In particular, our approach uses a sequential state-of-the-art QBF solver to evaluate subformulas in working processes. It abstains from globally exchanging information between the workers, but keeps learnt information only locally. To this end, we equipped the state-of-the-art QBF solver DepQBF with assumption-based reasoning and integrated it in our novel solver MPIDepQBF as backend solver. Extensive experiments on standard computers as well as on the supercomputer Tsubame show the impact of our approach.
