We study the parameterized complexity of the propositional model counting problem #SAT for CNF formulas. As the parameter we consider the treewidth of the following two graphs associated with CNF formulas: the consensus graph and the conflict graph. Both graphs have as vertices the clauses of the formula; in the consensus graph two clauses are adjacent if they do not contain a complementary pair of literals, while in the conflict graph two clauses are adjacent if they do contain a complementary pair of literals. We show that #SAT is fixed-parameter tractable for the treewidth of the consensus graph but W[1]-hard for the treewidth of the conflict graph. We also compare the new parameters with known parameters under which #SAT is fixed-parameter tractable.
