One of the main problems in chip design is the enormous number of possible combinations of individual chip elements within a system, and the problem of their compatibility. The recent application of data structures, efficient algorithms, and ordered binary decision diagrams (OBDDs) has proven vital in designing the computer chips of tomorrow. This book provides an introduction to the foundations of this interdisciplinary research area, emphasizing its applications in computer aided circuit design.

Symbolic Boolean manipulation using binary decision diagrams (BDDs) has been successfully applied to a wide variety of tasks, particularly in very large scale integration (VLSI) computer-aided design (CAD). The concept of decision graphs as an abstract representation of Boolean functions dates back to the early work by Lee and Akers. In the last ten years, BDDs have found widespread use as a concrete data structure for symbolic Boolean manipulation. With BDDs, functions can be constructed, manipulated, and compared by simple and efficient graph algorithms. Since Boolean functions can represent not just digital circuit functions, but also such mathematical domains as sets and relations, a wide variety of CAD problems can be solved using BDDs. `Binary Decision Diagrams and Applications for VLSI CAD provides valuable information for both those who are new to BDDs as well as to long time aficionados.' -from the Foreword by Randal E. Bryant. `Over the past ten years ... BDDs have attracted the attention of many researchers because of their suitability for representing Boolean functions. They are now widely used in many practical VLSI CAD systems. ... this book can serve as an introduction to BDD techniques and ... it presents several new ideas on BDDs and their applications. ... many computer scientists and engineers will be interested in this book since Boolean function manipulation is a fundamental technique not only in digital system design but also in exploring various problems in computer science.' - from the Preface by Shin-ichi Minato.

This volume contains papers selected for presentation at the Silver Jubilee 25th Symposium on Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science | MFCS 2000, held in Bratislava, Slovakia, August 28 { September 1, 2000. MFCS 2000 was organized under the auspices of the Minister of Education of the Slovak Republic, Milan Ft a cnik, by the Slovak Society for Computer Science, and the Comenius University in Bratislava, in cooperation with other institu- ons in Slovakia. It was supported by the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science, the European Research Consortium for Informatics and - thematics, and the Slovak Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathe- tics. The series of MFCS symposia, organized alternately in the Czech Republic, Poland, and Slovakia since 1972, has a well-established tradition. The MFCS symposia encourage high-quality research in all branches of theoretical computer science. Their broad scope provides an opportunity of bringing together spec- lists who do not usually meet at specialized conferences. The previous meetings took place in Jablonna, 1972; Strbsk e Pleso, 1973; Jadwisin, 1974; Mari ansk e L azn e, 1975; Gdansk, 1976; Tatransk a Lomnica, 1977; Zakopane, 1978; Olomouc, 1979; Rydzina, 1980; Strbsk e Pleso, 1981; Prague, 1984; Bratislava, 1986; C- lsbad, 1988; Porabk a-Kozubnik, 1989; Bansk a Bystrica, 1990; Kazimierz Dolny, 1991; Prague, 1992; Gdansk, 1993, Ko sice, 1994; Prague, 1995; Krak ow, 1996; Bratislava, 1997; Brno, 1998; and Szklarska Poreba, 1999.

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 22nd International Conference on Theory and Applications of Satisfiability Testing, SAT 2019, held in Lisbon, Portugal, UK, in July 2019. The 19 revised full papers presented together with 7 short papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 64 submissions. The papers address different aspects of SAT interpreted in a broad sense, including (but not restricted to) theoretical advances (such as exact algorithms, proof complexity, and other complexity issues), practical search algorithms, knowledge compilation, implementation-level details of SAT solvers and SAT-based systems, problem encodings and reformulations, applications (including both novel application domains and improvements to existing approaches), as well as case studies and reports on findings based on rigorous experimentation.

Looks at applying evolution-inspired formalisms to hardware design in order to produce self-reconfigurable electronic hardware by evolutionary and genetic reconfiguration mechanisms. The 35 papers cover the evolution of FPGAs, digital functions, analog and mixed- signal circuits, cellular automata and brain-inspired architectures; reconfiguration architectures and dynamic reconfiguration, advanced reconfigurable devices; applications to the design and adaptation of space sub-systems; and genetic algorithms applications. Titles, but not texts, are included for the nine invited talks. Authors, but not subjects, are indexed. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
