# Writing a sat solver performance

However, even if asymptotically better algorithms cannot exist, that doesn't mean we can't have algorithms that are better in practice.

This is in fact how Knuth implements the algorithm. I decided to follow Norvig's blog post about his own Sudoku solver and use this set of 95 hard Sudokus for measuring the performance of my solver.

Since Home Depot and Walmart offer us only one time option evening and morning, respectivelythen we have to go there at those times. Positive means the literal -- is never negated; negative means it always is. In simplest terms, it states that the regions in any map can be coloured using at most four colours such that no two neighbouring regions are coloured the same.

Yes I understood this, but thanks for making sure anyway Luckily, though, cruching numbers and analyzing thousands of different options are what computers excel at. This lends itself to a simple decision problem: given a map, is it possible to colour it using 4 or less colours such that no two neighbouring regions are the same colour?

Also, deciding the truth of quantified Horn formulas can be done in polynomial time.

Given a conjunctive normal form with three literals per clause, the problem is to determine if an assignment to the variables exists such that in no clause all three literals have the same truth value.

This is because we operate with an unstated assumption, that each position can contain only one number. At most one literal is true when there is no pair of literals where both of the literals are true at the same time.
