M.Sc. Tobias Heß

At the core of my research lies the analysis of configurable systems by means of knowledge compilation, first and foremost binary decision diagrams. Therein, my research is aimed at improving the scalability of binary decision diagrams to enable the analysis of real-world systems. Naturally, I am also interested in the concrete problems (SAT, #SAT, QBF) the analyses are composed of.

Research Projects

Eclipse Plugin for Feature Oriented Software Development

OBDDimal

The goal of the project "Optimal Binary Decision Diagrams for Information Visualization, Model Analysis, and Logic Operations" (OBDDimal, for short) focuses at its core on improving the scalability of binary decision diagrams (BDDs) and related data structures. Domains which would benefit from an increase in scalability are, among other, information visualization (e.g., interactive configurators), model analysis (e.g., feature-model analysis, static code analysis), and logic operations in general (e.g., negation of CNFs).
