Automating OBDD proofs is NP-hard

pdf-format:


Abstract

We prove that the proof system OBDD(∧, weakening) is not automatable unless P = NP. The proof is based upon the celebrated result of [Albert Atserias and Moritz Müller, 2019] about the hardness of automatability for resolution. The heart of the proof is lifting with multi-output indexing gadget from resolution block-width to dag-like multiparty number-in-hand communication protocol size with o(n) parties, where n is the number of variables in the non-lifted formula. A similar lifting theorem for protocols with n+1 participants was proved by [Göös et al., 2020] to establish the hardness of automatability result for Cutting Planes.
