An Iterative Approach for Counting Reduced Ordered Binary Decision Diagrams

Authors: Julien Clément and Antoine Genitrini

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 272, 48th International Symposium on Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science (MFCS 2023)


Abstract
For three decades binary decision diagrams, a data structure efficiently representing Boolean functions, have been widely used in many distinct contexts like model verification, machine learning, cryptography and also resolution of combinatorial problems. The most famous variant, called reduced ordered binary decision diagram (robdd for short), can be viewed as the result of a compaction procedure on the full decision tree. A useful property is that once an order over the Boolean variables is fixed, each Boolean function is represented by exactly one robdd. In this paper we aim at computing the {exact distribution of the Boolean functions in k variables according to the robdd size}, where the robdd size is equal to the number of decision nodes of the underlying directed acyclic graph (dag) structure. Recall the number of Boolean functions with k variables is equal to 2^{2^k}, which is of double exponential growth with respect to the number of variables. The maximal size of a robdd with k variables is M_k ≈ 2^k / k. Apart from the natural combinatorial explosion observed, another difficulty for computing the distribution according to size is to take into account dependencies within the dag structure of robdds. In this paper, we develop the first polynomial algorithm to derive the distribution of Boolean functions over k variables with respect to robdd size denoted by n. The algorithm computes the (enumerative) generating function of robdds with k variables up to size n. It performs O(k n⁴) arithmetical operations on integers and necessitates storing O((k+n) n²) integers with bit length O(nlog n). Our new approach relies on a decomposition of robdds layer by layer and on an inclusion-exclusion argument.

Beyond Series-Parallel Concurrent Systems: The Case of Arch Processes

Authors: Olivier Bodini, Matthieu Dien, Antoine Genitrini, and Alfredo Viola

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 110, 29th International Conference on Probabilistic, Combinatorial and Asymptotic Methods for the Analysis of Algorithms (AofA 2018)


Abstract
In this paper we focus on concurrent processes built on synchronization by means of futures. This concept is an abstraction for processes based on a main execution thread but allowing to delay some computations. The structure of a general concurrent process is a directed acyclic graph (DAG). Since the quantitative study of increasingly labeled DAG (directly related to processes) seems out of reach (this is a #P-complete problem), we restrict ourselves to the study of arch processes, a simplistic model of processes with futures. They are based on two parameters related to their sizes and their numbers of arches. The increasingly labeled structures seems not to be specifiable in the classical sense of Analytic Combinatorics, but we manage to derive a recurrence equation for the enumeration. For this model we first exhibit an exact and an asymptotic formula for the number of runs of a given process. The second main contribution is composed of a uniform random sampler algorithm and an unranking one that allow efficient generation and exhaustive enumeration of the runs of a given arch process.

The Combinatorics of Non-determinism

Authors: Olivier Bodini, Antoine Genitrini, and Frédéric Peschanski

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 24, IARCS Annual Conference on Foundations of Software Technology and Theoretical Computer Science (FSTTCS 2013)


Abstract
A deep connection exists between the interleaving semantics of concurrent processes and increasingly labelled combinatorial structures. In this paper we further explore this connection by studying the rich combinatorics of partially increasing structures underlying the operator of non-deterministic choice. Following the symbolic method of analytic combinatorics, we study the size of the computation trees induced by typical non-deterministic processes, providing a precise quantitative measure of the so-called "combinatorial explosion" phenomenon. Alternatively, we can see non-deterministic choice as encoding a family of tree-like partial orders. Measuring the (rather large) size of this family on average offers a key witness to the expressiveness of the choice operator. As a practical outcome of our quantitative study, we describe an efficient algorithm for generating computation paths uniformly at random.
