A NEW ALGORITHM TO SOLVE OVERDEFINED SYSTEMS
OF LINEAR LOGICAL EQUATIONS
Arkadij Zakrevskij
United Institute of Informatics Problems of NAS of Belarus
A system of m linear logical equations (SLLE) with n Boolean variables :
a11x1 a12x2 … a1nxn = y1 ,
a21x1 a22x2 … a2nxn = y2 ,
…
am1x1 am2x2 … amnxn = ym .
Any SLLE can be presented by equation
Ax = y,
A – the matrix of coefficients, x – the vector of unknowns, y – the vector of free members, all Boolean.
Usually A and y are given, the problem is to find a root  a value of vector x satisfying the equation Ax = y.
An SLLE could be

Let m > n, and all columns of matrix A are linearindependent.
Then system Ax = y is consistent for 2nvaluesof vector y (called suitable)from 2m possible values.
Suppose a suitable vector y* is distorted to y = y* e, where e is a distortion vector.
The problem is to restore vector y* (or e) for given A and y.
When y is not too far from y*, that problem can be solved by finding a suitable value y”, the nearest to y. Then y”=y*.
Matrix A generates a linear vector spaceM, consisting of all different sums (modulo 2) of columns from A.
Equation Ax = y is consistent (and y is suitable) iff y M.
The problem is to calculate the vector distanced (A, y) between vector space M and vector y. It could be regarded as the distortion vector e if its weight w(e) (the number of 1s) is smaller then the averaged shortest Hamming distance between elements in M.
Vector e can be regarded as well as the correction vector.
The value of is defined by inequality
(m, n, ) < 1 (m, n, + 1),
where (m, n, k) is the expected number of suitable values of vector y with weight k in a random SLLE with parameters m and n:
k
(m, n, k) = Cmi 2nm.
i = 0

Changing some column aiof matrix A for its sum with another column aj we obtain some matrix A+ equivalent to initial one (generating the same linear vector space M)
Affirmation 1. Vector distance d (A+, y) = d (A, y).
Changing vector y in system (A, y) for its sum with arbitrary column aj from matrix A we obtain z+.
Affirmation 2. Vector distance d (A, y+) = d (A, y).
Using introduced operations, we canonize system (A, y):
1) select n linearly independent rows in matrix A;
2) in every of them delete all 1s except one (put into position i for ith of the selected rows);
3) delete 1s in corresponding components of vector z.
After that the obtained system (A+, y+) is reduced in size:
4) all selected rows are deleted from matrix A+, as well as the corresponding components of vector y. The remaining rows and components constitute Boolean ((m – n) n)matrix B and (m – n)vector u.
Affirmation 3. The task of restoration (finding vector d (A, y)) is reduced to solving the core equationBx =u):
To find a column subset C in matrix B, which minimizes the arithmetic sum w(c) + w(s). In that case d (A, y) = (c, s), the concatenation of vectors c and s.
c  the Boolean nvector indicating columns from B entering C; w(c)  the number of 1s in c;
(C)  the mod 2 sum of columns in C;
s = (C) u; w(s)  the number of 1s in s.

Restoring the initial system:
1. Solving system B x = u, i. e. finding a value c of x which minimizes function (Bx u) + w (x).
2. Obtaining d (A, y) = (c, Bc u), which could be accepted as distortion (correction) vector e .
3. Calculating, if needed, suitable vector y* = ye, then solving consistent system A x = y* and finding x*.

Solving the core equation B x = u
The suggested method can be applied when w(e) < .
As soon as w(c, s) < for a current subset C from B, vector (c, s) could be accepted as vector e.
The subsets C are checked one by one while increasing number of columns in C up to L  the level of search.
The runtime T strongly depends on L, which, in its turn, depends statistically on m, n and w(e), with a great dispersion.
Solving the core equation B x = u
It follows from here that efficient algorithms can be constructed which solve the problem in the quasiparallel mode using a set of many (q) canonical forms of system (A, y) with different basics selected at random.
Solving the core equation B x = u
Additional acceleration in finding a short solution can be achieved by randomization.
q different canonical forms are prepared, which have various basics selectedat random.
Then the solution is searched in parallel over all these forms, at levels of exhaustive search 0, 1, etc., until at a current level L a solution with weight w, satisfying condition w < 1 will be recognized.
With raising q this level L can be reduced, as well as the runtime T, which powerfully depends on L.
10 random overdefined SLLEs (A, y) were prepared with m = 1000, n = 100, and w(e) = 100. Each of them was solved. The level of search was minimized by:
randomization – constructing q random equivalent forms (A+, y+) and transforming them to (B,u),
solving systems (B,u)in parallel, gradually raising the level of search,
restricting the search by recognizing short solutions.
Conducting the experiments for q = 1, q = 10 and q = 100 to see how the runtimeTdepend on q.
