English abstract:
We studydependency quantified Boolean formulas(DQBF),an extension of QBF in which dependencies of existentialvariables are listed explicitly rather than being implicit inthe order of quantifiers. DQBF evaluation is a canonicalNEXPTIME-complete problem, a complexity class contain-ing many prominent problems that arise in Knowledge Rep-resentation and Reasoning.One approach for solving such hard problems is to identifyand exploit structural properties captured by numerical pa-rameters such that bounding these parameters gives rise toan efficient algorithm. This idea is captured by the notionof fixed-parameter tractability (FPT). We initiate the studyof DQBF through the lens of fixed-parameter tractabilityand show that the evaluation problem becomes FPT undertwo natural parameterizations: the treewidth of the primalgraph of the DQBF instance combined with a restriction onthe interactions between the dependency sets, and also thetreedepth of the primal graph augmented by edges represent-ing dependency sets.
