A Structural Approach to Reasoning with Quantified Boolean Formulas

In this paper we approach the problem of reasoning with quantified Boolean formulas (QBFs) by combining search and resolution, and by switching between them according to structural properties of QBFs. We provide empirical evidence that QBFs which cannot be solved by search or resolution alone, can be solved by combining them, and that our approach makes a proof-of-concept implementation competitive with current QBF solvers.
