VSOP: Valued-Sum-Of-Products Calculator Based on Zero-Suppressed BDDs
Shin-ichi Minato (Hokkaido Univ.)
Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Recently, Binary Decision Diagrams (BDDs) are widely used for manipulating large-scale Boolean function data. Zero-suppressed BDDs (ZBDDs) are special type of BDDs which are suitable for implicitly handling large-scale combinatorial item set data. In this paper, we present "VSOP" program developed for calculating combinatorial item set data specified by symbolic expressions based on ZBDD techniques. VSOP supports not only combinatorial set operations but also numerical arithmetic operations based on "Valued-Sum-Of-Products" algebla, such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, numerical comaprison, etc. We discuss the data structures and algorithms in VSOP program, and show some typical applications.
