The Challenges of Evaluating a New Feature in Vampire

5 pagesPublished: February 23, 2016


This paper presents and explores experimental results examining the usage of AVATAR (Advanced Vampire Architecture for Theories and Resolution). This architecture introduces a new method for splitting in first-order resolution and superposition theorem provers that makes use of a SAT (or SMT) solver to make splitting decisions. The architecture (as implemented in Vampire) has many options and components that can be varied and this paper explores the effects of these variations on the performance of the prover.
