Supercritical Space-Width Trade-Offs for Resolution

pdf-format:


Abstract

We show that there are CNF formulas which can be refuted in resolution in both small space and small width, but for which any small-width resolution proof must have space exceeding by far the linear worst-case upper bound. This significantly strengthens the space-width trade-offs in [Ben-Sasson 2009], and provides one more example of trade-offs in the "supercritical" regime above worst case recently identified by [Razborov 2016]. We obtain our results by using Razborov’s new hardness condensation technique and combining it with the space lower bounds in [Ben-Sasson and Nordström 2008].
