Hi Alain!

Essentially, an intermediate goal is to enhance an existing BDD implementation with several methods (they are needed inside a model-checker). One method should count the exact size of the support of a boolean function. Cudd, for instance, doesn't to this exactly (returns a double). Second, I'd like to implement Cartesian abstraction with respect to blocks of variables. I.e. given a boolean function on variables

x11,...,x1m,x21,...,x2m, ... ,xn1,...,xnm

that represents a subset Y of (2^m)^n

we have to compute the boolean function that represents

projection_{x11,...,x1m}(Y) x projection_{x21,...,x2m}(Y) x ... x projection_{xn1,...,xnm}(Y).

A most simple BDD representation with best asymptotic times would be good to start with. Variable reordering, for instance, is of no use; ever sharing among different BDDs on the same computer is an obstacle.

Best regards

Sasha.

For some applications, this is really a must. Why is it impossible for you to use to an external BDD implementation?-- Alain
