Abstract:
How to decide boolean combinations of equalities? As an alternative to Shostak's congruence closure, we extended binary decision diagrams with equalities. Combined with Ackerman's function elimination this does the job. We describe how EQ-BDDs provide a "canonical enough", albeit not unique, representation of propositions over equalities. Then, using wishful thinking, we describe how to extend EQ-BDDs with algebraically defined functions.
