Boolector is a specialized Satisfiability Modulo Theories (SMT) solver for the theories of fixed-size bit-vectors, arrays and uninterpreted functions. It further natively handles non-recursive first-order lambda terms.


CVC4 is an open-source automatic theorem prover for Satisfiability Modulo Theories (SMT) problems. It supports many theories and their combinations.


ddSMT serves as an input minimizer for Sat Modulo Theories (SMT) benchmarks in SMT-LIB v2 format.


QBFcert is a framework for resolution-based extraction and validation of certificates for Quantified Boolean Formulas (QBF).


QBFDD is a delta-debugger for quantified boolean formulas (QBF) in QDIMACS format.


QxBF is a preprocessor for QBFs in QDIMACS format based on failed literal detection (FL).
