Mios -- Minisat-based Implementation and Optimization Study

Mios is yet another minisat-based SAT solver implementation in Haskell, as a part of my research theme.

  • [ChangeLog](ChangeLog.md)

> Features

  • fundamentally it is developed based on Minisat-1.14 and 2.2.0.
    • Firstly, version 1.0 was based on N. Een and N. Sorensson, β€œAn extensible SAT-solver [extended version 1.2],” in 6th Int. Conf. on Theory and Applications of Satisfiability Testing (SAT2003), 2003, pp. 502–518.
    • Version 1.1 was a line-to-line translation of MiniSat 1.14.
    • Version 1.2 imported some idea used in Glucose 4.0.
    • Version 1.5 uses Literal Block Distance (LBD).
    • Version 1.6 adopts new ideas: EMA, ACIDS and so on.
  • runs in IO monad, uses Data.Primitive.ByteArray mainly and reallyUnsafePtrEquality.
  • very fast, compared with other SAT solvers written in Haskell; see below.

benchmark results

  • SAT-Competition 2017 Main track, running 3 jobs in parallel with a 510 second timeout on Intel Core i7-3930K @ 12x 3.8GHz (Therefore results near the threshold should be affected by other threads more or less.)

> Install

  • ghc-8.0.1 or upper (By deleting default-extensions from mios.cabal, you can use ghc-7.10.x.)
  • Stack
  • If you want to build with cabal, please use the cabal file under utils directory.
git clone https://github.com/shnarazk/mios
stack init --resolver lts-11.X  # for ghc-8.2.X
stack install

Mios is registered in hackage now.

cabal install mios

> Usage

* As a standalone program
$ mios a.cnf
an assignment :: [Int]

$ mios --help

If you have GNU parallel, Mios works well with it:

parallel "mios --benchmark=0 --sequence={#} -o {.cnf}.result {}" ::: *.cnf
* In Haskell
module Main where -- this is sample.hs in app/
import SAT.Mios (CNFDescription (..), solveSAT)

clauses = [[1, 2], [1, 3], [-1, -2], [1, -2, 3], [-3]] :: [[Int]]
desc = CNFDescription 3 5 Nothing    -- #vars, #clauses, Just pathname or Nothing

main = do
  asg <- solveSAT desc clauses    -- solveSAT :: Traversable m => CNFDescription -> m [Int] -> IO [Int]
  putStrLn $ if null asg then "unsatisfiable" else show asg
$ stack ghc app/sample.hs
$ app/sample

Of course, you can use Mios in ghci similarly.

$ stack ghci
